Sanofi update on Zantac litigation

Sanofi to Appeal Delaware Court’s Decision on Zantac

Sanofi has expressed disappointment with the recent decision by the State of Delaware court and intends to appeal. The company maintains that there is no reliable scientific evidence linking Zantac to cancer, a stance supported by a 2022 ruling from a US federal court in Florida overseeing federal cases in multidistrict litigation. Prior to this Delaware decision, around 75,000 individuals had filed lawsuits in Delaware, with approximately 25,000 naming Sanofi and almost all including additional defendants. Sanofi believes that none of these cases should proceed to trial. The company remains committed to defending Zantac’s safety and will continue to vigorously contest these claims, which have been extensively evaluated and deemed without merit by medical, scientific, and regulatory communities.
