According to today’s press release at PR Newswire, AstraZeneca must pay the federal government $520 million in civil fines to settle charges of off-label marketing of the antipsychotic drug Seroquel.

The settlement is the largest pharmaceutical civil settlement, and among the top five civil and criminal drug company settlements in U.S. history.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Seroquel only for schizophrenia and specific types of bipolar mania. AstraZeneca was charged with promoting Seroquel to physicians for “off-label” use in children and the elderly.
