Pfizer has disclosed that it has taken a $491 million charge to settle the Rapamune False Claims Act case against it. The company has an agreement with the Justice Department to settle Wyeth’s historical promotional practices in connection with Rapamune, which is an organ transplant drug. As you may recall, Pfizer acquired Wyeth in 2009.
The qui tam lawsuit was filed by Marlene Sandler and Scott Paris – two former employees at Wyeth. The lawsuit alleges that Wyeth engaged in illegal off-label marketing of Rapamune. Sandler and Paris are being represented by John Kairis, Traci Goins and Allessandra Phillilps, who are lawyers with Grant & Eisenhofer, a firm located in Wilmington, Del.
