Nevada AG claims pharma companies marketed products deceptively

Pharma Compliance Alert, November 26, 2008

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto filed suit against Wyeth and Pfizer, claiming the companies misled physicians and consumers about the dangers of four pharmaceutical products.

According to the suit, the companies downplayed the risks and exaggerated the benefits of Wyeth’s Premarin, Prempro, and Premphase, and Pfizer’s Provera. As a result, physicians over-prescribed the medications. Cortez Masto also alleges the companies provided false and misleading information in direct-to-consumer advertising, continuing medical education programs, press releases, and ghost-written journal articles.
