A Connecticut woman took the hormone replacement drug Prempro for five years and then developed invasive breast cancer. She had treatment including chemotherapy and radiation for five years. She is currently cancer-free, but if the cancer comes back it will probably kill her. She alleged that the drug company, Wyeth, knew back in 1976 about the connection between hormone therapy and cancer but ignored the red flags. The FDA even asked Wyeth to put a warning label on the drug saying that the risk of cancer would be significantly increased, but Wyeth failed to do so. The jury found that the Prempro was a significant factor causing the woman's cancer and awarded her $4 million.
