2013 DES Breast Cancer Trial – Arline MacCormack Interview

Arline MacCormack is one of 53 women from the USA who sued Eli Lilly, manufacturer of the DES drug, at Boston, in 2012-2013.

What did the Diethylstilbestrol drugs manufacturers know, when did they know it and what did they do about it?

”The characteristics of my cancer were for women over 60 typically. It wasn’t the type of cancer a 40-year-old or a 44-year-old woman gets. When I read the research that’s been done, I found I had more chance of getting it because my mom took DES.”

said MacCormack.
