Pfizer to pay $35 million to U.S. states to settle Rapamune claims

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pfizer Inc agreed to pay $35 million to 41 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. to settle claims that its Wyeth unit illegally marketed the drug Rapamune, and encouraged doctors and hospitals to prescribe it for off-label uses.

The settlement was announced on Wednesday, just over one year after Pfizer agreed in July 2013 to pay $490.9 million to resolve U.S. Department of Justice claims over the marketing of the drug.
