Amgen Pays $71 Million In Multistate Drug-Marketing Settlement

By Beasley Allen

Amgen Inc. has agreed to a $71 million settlement with 48 state attorneys general who accused the drugmaker of marketing its anemia drug Aranesp and plaque psoriasis drug Enbrel, both biologic medications, for uses beyond the scope of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. The drugmaker, based in California, agreed to a consent judgment last month with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and other Attorneys General after they claimed it marketed Aranesp for cancer-related anemia without FDA approval and promoted Enbrel to treat mild plaque psoriasis - an auto-immune problem that causes the flaking and scaling of skin cells - even though the drug is only approved for more serious forms of the condition.
