Merck & Co. (NYSE:MRK): Current price $47.20
The number-two domestic drugmaker said that a jury decided in its favor in a trial concerning claims that its Fosamax osteoporosis treatment caused a woman’s femur to fracture spontaneously as she was gardening. The verdict was handed down in federal court in Trenton, New Jersey, according to a Merck statement, but it could not immediately be confirmed in court records. This case is the first of roughly 3,300 femur-fracture lawsuits against the firm to be decided by a jury. Bernadette Glynn sued Merck regarding claims that the firm was aware that Fosamax might cause brittle bones and thus increase fracture risks, years prior to the drug being available to the public.
