Jury Finds AstraZeneca Not Liable in Drug Law Suit

A court have found AstraZeneca not guilty in the case of their psychiatric drug Seroquel causing harm to users.

Ted Baker, 61, had sued the drug maker, claiming that the drug, which he was taking caused his diabetes.

The drug is approved to treat patients diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but is often prescribed by doctors for many off-label conditions.

The jury in the case deliberated for seven hours and returned a seven to one verdict in favor of the drug maker.

This is just the first bullet dodged by the drug maker, as it faces many more complaints over the drug.
