Plaintiff Suffered Pulmonary Embolism After Using Yaz
The Ohio lawsuit of Beck v. Bayer alleges that the embolism was caused by Yaz:
Yasmin, (a predecessor to YAZ), known generically as drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol, is a combination birth control pill originally developed by Defendant BERLEX LABORATORIES, INC. and/or Defendant BERLEX, INC containing the hormones estrogen and progestin.The estrogen is ethinyl estradiol and the progestin is drospirenone, (3 mg of drospirenone and 0.03 mg of ethinyl estradiol per tablet) Combination birth control pills are referred to as combined hormonal oral contraceptivesYasmin was approved by the FDA in April, 2001In 2006, Bayer acquired Defendant BERLEX LABORATORIES, INC. and/or Defendant BERLEX, INC, and began marketing an almost identical drug, YAZ (which contains 3 mg of drospirenone and 0.02 mg of ethinyl estradiol per tablet). The difference between YAZ/Yasmin and other birth control pills on the market is that drospirenone has never before been marketed in the United States and is unlike other progestins available in the United States.In April 2002, the British Medical Journal reported that the Dutch College of General Practitioners recommended that older second generation birth control pills be prescribed in lieu of Yasmin as a result of 40 cases of venous thrombosis among women taking Yasmin. In February 2003, a paper entitled Thromboembolism Associated With the New Contraceptive Yasmin was published in the British Medical Journal detailing a Netherlands Pharmacovigilance Centre report of five additional reports of thromboembolism where Yasmin was suspected as the cause, including two deaths.Defendants have been warned at least three times by the FDA; in 2003, 2008 and 2009, for misleading the public through the use of ads which overstate the efficacy of YAZ and/or its predecessor Yasmin, and minimize serious risks associated with the drug. The use of YAZ has a prothrombotic effect resulting in thrombosis such as the pulmonary embolism suffered by Plaintiff. Defendants ignored the correlation between the use of YAZ and increased thrombosis formation despite the wealth of scientific information available.

Wrongful Death from Yaz can occur when a blood clot moves thru the body.
A 2009 study published in Contraception explains how Yaz may increase the risk of pulmonary embolism and other cardiovascular injuries, because pills with the chemical combination of drospirenone (progestin) and ethinylestradiol (estrogen) cause an increase in lipid peroxidation. This leads to high levels of serum copper, a situation that increases the risk of cardiovascular injury, such as
Blood clots. Blood clots anyplace in the body can be dangerous but, in the brain or lungs can be fatal.
