Judge Dismisses First Seroquel Suits

Two down, almost 10,000 to go. A Florida federal judge on Wednesday dismissed the first in a series of lawsuits against AstraZeneca over allegations its anti-psychotic drug Seroquel causes diabetes.

Former Seroquel users Linda Guinn and David Haller could not prove they developed diabetes because of the drug, U.S. District Judge Anne Conway said at the hearing. The plaintiffs argued AstraZeneca failed to adequately alert doctors and patients about Seroquel's potential to cause diabetes, even though the company knew about a possible correlation as early as 2000.
