Daughters at Risk

A Personal DES History

Daughters at Risk, a Personal DES HistoryDaughters of women prescribed DES have also been prone to cancer.
Anne Needham, who as a young woman had a hysterectomy for cancer, sued White Laboratories, makers of a DES drug.

Lawrence S. Charfoos – an attorney in the litigation – and Stephen Fenichell detail the case and provide a history of DES development, research linking it early to cancer, the FDA’s approval, the pharmaceutical company promotion, and the medical community’s involvement.
