Drugmaker Merck & Co. says a federal court jury has ruled in its favor in the second trial over whether its osteoporosis drug made teeth and jawbones deteriorate.
The company says the New York jury ruled unanimously against 69-year-old Louise Maley of Muncie, Ind.
She blamed her dental problems on Fosamax, a widely used osteoporosis pill she took for about eight years. Merck says she had multiple medical conditions that can trigger jaw and dental problems.
Merck faces more than 1,350 other lawsuits by people alleging Fosamax has damaged jawbones and teeth.
IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY, NOTHING HAS IMPROVED LIFE FOR MORE PEOPLE THAN BIG PHARMA.
THE DEMOCRAT-TRIAL LAWYERS COMPLEX IS THE ENEMY.
