Aventis Inc. Key Developments

Ashlye Barcal Sues Aventis Inc. and EMD Serono Inc

Ashlye Barcal sued Aventis Inc. and EMD Serono Inc., which market the prescription fertility drugs Clomid and Serophene, respectively. Both drugs are known chemically as clomiphene citrate and are used to induce ovulation to help users become pregnant. Barcal alleges that her mother took Serophene in order to become pregnant in 1993 and 1994. Barcal alleges that, as a result, she developed congenital heart defects that required treatment and surgery during her childhood. The lawsuit alleges that the defendants knew or should have known of the dangers of the drugs but made it and sold it anyway.
