Primodos survivors take on drugs firm

Primodos: Firms and govt face legal action over claims pregnancy drug ‘damaged babies’, Sky News, Aug 2019

“Parents who say their babies were damaged by a pregnancy test drug have warned manufacturers and the government that they are preparing to take legal action.”

Primodos, a pregnancy test drug, has led to a decades-long campaign by parents and children who claim it has caused a range of devastating birth defects.

In 2017, Sky News revealed how documents were destroyed and information withheld about the drug that may have deformed and killed babies in the womb.

Now, parents who say their babies were damaged by the drug have warned manufacturers and the government they are preparing to take legal action.

Lawyers representing more than 200 claimants accuse two drug companies and UK regulators of putting patients at risk.
