WASHINGTON (AP) - New
evidence that sequential oral
contraceptives may be harmful
to women has led three major
drug companies to withdraw the
products from the market, the
Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) says.
The birth control pills being
withdrawn are Oracon, made
by Mead-Johnson and Co.; Or-
tho-Novum SQ, by Ortho Phar-
maceuticals; and Norguans, by
Syntex Laboratories, FDA an-
nounced Wednesday.
THE FDA SAID it asked for
the withdrawal because of new
studies strongly suggesting that
sequential oral contraceptives
pose an increased risk of en-
dometrial cancer in the lining
of. the uterus, compared with
women who take combination-

type oral contraceptives. j
Before the cancer studies be-
came known, the FDA already1
had evidence that sequentials
were somewhat less effective in '
preventing pregnancy than the
combination pills, and that the
sequentials were associated with
a higher risk of blood clotting.;
The FDA said the three com-
panies, at the agency's request,,
agreed to cease production.
marketing and distribution of
the sequential tablets.
Supplies on the market will
not be recalled, an FDA spokes-
man said, and women current-
ly taking them are being advis-
ed to continue through their
present menstrual cycle whilea
they consult with their doctors
on an alternative contraceptive
product.
