California Jury Told of direct link between talcum and cancer

Jury Told of Direct Link between Talc and Cancer

August 16, 2017
The doctor who treated a plaintiff who is suing Johnson & Johnson over the alleged links between ovarian cancer and the talcum powder in the company’s products has testified that the talc caused the cancer, period.

Dr. Annie Yessaian, oncologist and University of Southern California gynecology assistant professor and the doctor who treated plaintiff Eva Echeverria, further asserted that any studies that deny a link between talc and ovarian cancer are flawed. She said that such studies were scientifically irresponsible, especially in the ways in which they gathered their data.

Dr. Yessaian testified that had Echeverria not used talcum powder and baby powder for decades as a feminine hygiene product, she would not have contracted ovarian cancer.

Echeverria’s trial, currently underway in Los Angeles, is the first of six California talc trials. Echeverria is dying of ovarian cancer.

Of five recent talc trials in St. Louis, J&J lost four, and has been ordered to pay out more than $300 million.

The trial is expected to conclude at the end of the third week of August.
