What's This Settlement About?

A settlement in the amount of $28,000,000 has been reached as a result of a class action lawsuit against Vyera Pharmaceuticals, LLC, (“Vyera”) and Phoenixus AG (“Phoenixus”). The lawsuit alleged that the companies had executed a scheme to monopolize the U.S. market for Daraprim. Daraprim is an essential, life-saving drug used in the treatment of toxoplasmosis. The lawsuit alleges that the companies conducted this price fixing scheme through an array of anticompetitive practices that successfully prevented the generic version of their drug, and thus competition for the market for this important drug, for years and continues to cause extremely high prices to this day.

The pharmaceutical companies claiemd to be involved in these unfair dealings and practices have denied that they prevented competitors from obtaining the Daraprim samples they needed to launch a generic product. They denied that they blocked competitors from performing generic testing through contractual restrictions that restricted distributors and other purchasers from selling Daraprim to generic companies.

Vyera increased the price per tablet of Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 the day after it closed the deal. This was an astronomical increase of more than 4,000%.

How Do I Qualify?

What Can I Get?

The Settlement provides a minimum cash payment to the Settlement Class of $7 million and additional potential cash payments totaling up to $21 million for a total potential settlement amount of up to $28 million.
