53 DES daughter breast cancer cases are now before US District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Boston, for a ruling on the scientific validity of evidence implicating DES with breast cancer in DES daughters after age 40.

These 53 women are being represented by Aaron M. Levine & Associates. Dr Hans-Olov Adami, former Chair of the Havard School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology and a world-renowned physician and epidemiologist has testified for the case. In relation to the research by Dr Julie Palmer, he stated: " so the bottomline of this is it provides strong evidence that DES exposure increases the risk, and that the risk increase starts sometime around age 40 and then grows as women get older."
