Four sisters reached a settlement against Indy-based drug maker Eli Lilly Wednesday.
Four Melnick sisters claimed they developed breast cancer because their mother took a synthetic form of estrogen while she was pregnant. The drug was made by several companies, including Eli Lilly.
The drug was thought to prevent miscarriages but it was taken off the market during the 1970s.
The sisters also claimed their mother did not take the drug during a fifth pregnancy and that sister has never developed cancer.
Lilly says there’s no definitive link between the drug and breast cancer.
Details of the settlement aren’t being made public.
