Accutane verdicts and settlements
There have been several recent court rulings that have held Roche Pharmaceuticals accountable for the chronic gastrointestinal conditions that many patients have developed as a result of treatment with Accutane. Jurors have ruled that the company failed to provide adequate warnings about the risk of inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis associated with the medication.
For example, in November 2009, a New Jersey court ruled that Roche Pharmaceuticals must pay $12.9 million in compensatory damages to three Florida plaintiffs who developed inflammatory bowel disease as a result of Accutane treatment. Jurors decided that Roche "improperly warned physicians" about the gastrointestinal risks associated with the drug, and awarded settlements.
