26 States Rejoin Suit over Antipsychotic Drug Seroquel
June 12, 2017
Twenty-six U.S. states, along with Washington, D.C., and the city of Chicago, have rejoined a suit against drug maker AstraZeneca that alleges the company concealed critical safety information from doctors and patients.
The reinstated claims, issued in a New York federal court, clear the way for a flood of further “whistleblower” allegations against the drug giant.
The states’ and cities’ previous claims had been withdrawn in March, after legal complications. The recent ruling remedies that oversight, thus permitting patients whose health had been harmed by Seroquel to seek legal recourse.
The central allegation is that Seroquel, which is used to treat psychosis, can interfere with the vital electrical functions of the heart. The original allegations against AstraZeneca further hold that the drug manufacturer knowingly hid this information from the users and prescribers of Seroquel.
