Family files lawsuit over RU-486 pill

first_imgSANTA ANA – The family of an Orange County woman who died last year after taking the so-called abortion pill has sued the drug’s U.S. marketer, alleging the company did not sufficiently warn women of potential risks. Hoa Thuy Tran, 21, a student from Fountain Valley, died in 2003 after taking RU-486 and a follow-up drug to end a pregnancy. She is one of four U.S. women – all from California – who are reported to have died of infection after taking the pill. RU-486, approved by federal regulators in 2000, is manufactured by New York-based Danco Laboratories and sold under the brand name Mifeprex. A company spokeswoman did not return a phone call Friday. The case was filed last week in Orange County Superior Court. In addition to Danco, Tran’s family sued Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino counties and the Population Council, a nonprofit research organization that conducted clinical trials on RU-486. Kimberlee Ward, vice president of public affairs at Planned Parenthood, told the paper that her organization cannot comment on the suit. She added, “We are very sorry and express our sympathy to the family for any death that has occurred.” The Population Council has yet to be served with the suit and declined to comment on pending litigation. The FDA approved Mifeprex to terminate pregnancy up to 49 days after the beginning of the last menstrual cycle. The drug blocks progesterone, a hormone required to sustain a pregnancy. When followed by the second drug, misoprostol, Mifeprex terminates the pregnancy. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Crawford, who is representing Tran’s husband, Charlie Nguyen, and her 5-year-old daughter, Destiny Nguyen, told a Los Angeles newspaper. “There had been two prior deaths by then. There was a risk out there,” Crawford said. The suit said Tran took Mifeprex on Dec. 23, 2003, at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Costa Mesa and was sent home with instructions to take the follow-up drug, misoprostol, a day or two later. She then traveled with friends to Las Vegas, where she collapsed. She died Dec. 29. The four California cases involving the pill are under investigation by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as state and local health agencies. last_img read more
