Zyprexa legal notice

Globe & Mail Legal Notice July 3, 2010

The Canadian class action lawsuits alleged that Eli Lilly Canada Inc. (and it’s parent company) manufactured, marketed and sold Zyprexa (Olanzapine) without properly warning of alleged risks of diabetes and related disorders such as hyperglycemia, ketoacidosis and pancreatitis which can all be deadly.

This follows a $700 million settlement in 2005 in the United States and affects Canadians who used Zyprexa prior to June 6, 2007.  A copy of the full legal notice and claim form can be found at www.classaction.ca.  Claim forms must be submitted by October 28, 2010.
