Ibuprofen is the active ingredient and used by other manufacturers, which many rely on for pain relief. Genomics when it reaches a bit further could offer insight for all of us down the road, but hard to say in a case such as this one as it was a question of packaging warnings that was in question and even more than that, there is plenty of information on the web too on all drugs.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A Malibu, California, jury found Johnson & Johnson not liable on Thursday in a $1 billion lawsuit involving an 11 year-old girl who claimed she was blinded after using the drug Children's Motrin. The painkiller is made by Johnson & Johnson's McNeil consumer healthcare unit. The jury voted 9-3 against liability, after a six week trial. Jurors found for the plaintiffs in seven of eight issues but decided that the ninth -- that Children's Motrin caused the injury to the girl, Sabrina Johnson -- was not proved.
