Pfizer Drug Trial Case In Nigeria To Restart Feb 25

A Nigerian court Wednesday adjourned to next month the multi-billion-dollar suit against U.S. drug firm Pfizer Inc. (PFE) by the Kano state government to allow for more time for an out-of-court settlement... Kano state is demanding $2.75 billion in compensation from Pfizer for the 1996 trial of a meningitis vaccine, Trovan, on 200 children in Kano. Pfizer and Kano state, which have been engaged in settlement talks since November 2007, are due to report to the court on details of their out-of-court deal... Some 11 children are alleged to have died from the drug test which also caused deformities in 189 others.
