France’s health regulator has opened an inquiry into acne drug Diane-35, which is also used as a contraceptive, after four deaths linked to the drug in the past 25 years.

Health regulator ANSM said yesterday that Diane-35, produced by German firm Bayer, is sold in more than 116 countries. Last year about 325,000 French women used it.
