05/29/2015 - Yesterday a Delaware jury ordered transvaginal mesh manufacturer, Boston Scientific, to pay $100 million to a Delaware woman who was injured by a transvaginal mesh device. Jurors awarded Deborah Barba $25 million in compensatory damages, and a staggering $75 million punitive damage award. Ms. Barba was implanted with Boston Scientific’s Pinnacle and Advantage Fit mesh products in 2009 in order to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The devices caused serious injuries, requiring two additional surgeries to attempt to remove the mesh.
05/26/2015 - It is known that tiny droplets of water can eventually break down even the hardest of stone. In the case of the thousands of women, who have been injured by the Essure sterilization device, the drops of water have turned into a virtual tsunami. What started out as a single Facebook page by Angie Firmalino, seeking to share her painful journey and warnings, has evolved into a Facebook group of over 17,000 strong supportive women, fondly known as the E-Sisters.
05/22/2015 - Any woman who has suffered an injury or adverse event relating to an Essure sterilization device is urged to file an Adverse Event report with the FDA as soon as possible. The FDA appears to be undertaking a half-hearted investigation into the serious and substantial allegations presented by thousands of women affected by the product. On April 2, 2015, three administrators from the advocacy group Essure Problems and two doctors met with 30 members of the FDA.
05/20/2015 - Takata Corporation, a major manufacturer of automotive airbags, has now agreed to recall nearly 34 million defective airbags, making this the largest recall in US history, noted the US Transportation Department. By agreeing to a consent order that increases the number of recalled air bags, Takata has reluctantly committed to cooperate with the government. Takata has previously resisted taking full responsibility for the air bag problems, incurring thousands of dollars daily in fines levied by the US government.
05/18/2015 - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued warnings on Friday concerning a newer class of type 2 diabetes drugs sold by Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson. The drugs may cause dangerously high levels of blood acids, which could require hospitalization. The medications, canagliflozin (Invokana), canagliflozin and metformin (Invokamet), dapagliflozin (Farxiga), dapagliflozin and metformin extended-release (Xigduo XR), empagliflozin (Jardiance) and empagliflozin and linagliptin (Glyxambi) may lead to ketoacidosis, a serious condition where the body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones, requiring hospitalization.
05/18/2015 - Competing medications, Xarelto and Pradaxa, are not only in competition regarding which drug will take the lion’s share of the anti-coagulant market, but also which product will be the subject of the most lawsuits filed as a result of consumers injured by the medications.
05/13/2015 - The Mirena IUD is Bayer’s most popular birth control product and worldwide sales have increased 33 percent between 2010 and 2013. However, recent studies showing adverse effects of the popular IUD may affect sales and the number of current lawsuits pending in the US concerning injuries caused by the device. Studies show a variety of injuries and symptoms are now being associated with the IUDs and more clinical studies are needed to completely understand the potential for problems.
05/13/2015 - Pharmaceutical and medical device companies have historically opposed rules by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the off-label use of medication and medical devices. When the FDA approves a drug or device, the drug label gives information regarding the drug, including the approved doses and how the drug is to be administered to treat the prescribed condition for which it was approved. When the drug is used in a different way other than described in the label, it is said to be an “off-label” use.
05/13/2015 - Takata Corporation, the Japanese auto-parts supplier embroiled in a U.S investigation regarding exploding air bags, has confirmed at least six deaths and over a hundred injuries in documents provided to the Senate Commerce Committee. Several of the injuries caused by the air bags are serious, including quadriplegia, blindness, a broken sternum and multiple fractures.
05/11/2015 - The number of testosterone lawsuits alleging serious side effects, including heart attack and strokes, has increased to nearly 1,400 claims pending in the multidistrict litigation in Illinois, according to court documents. The MDL, In Re: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Products Liability Litigation, is pending before Judge Kennelly in the Northern District of Illinois. Plaintiffs in the lawsuits claim they suffered from various health problems including heart attacks and strokes as a direct result of taking the testosterone.
05/08/2015 - The FDA is warning the public and 14 sports supplement companies that one of the ingredients found in the supplements contain DMBA, a drug from the 1940s that raises blood pressure. DMBA has never been formally tested in humans so it is unclear how safe or effective the product is. The FDA has deemed that the sports supplements are adulterated with a new dietary ingredient that has no history or evidence of its safety. The FDA has warned the manufacturers of such products of the violations.
05/07/2015 - Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon Inc lost its chance at a new trial after a jury returned a $5.7 million verdict in favor of a California women who claimed she was injured by the Ethicon mesh product. The jury ordered Ethicon to pay $700,000 in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages for the irresponsible and negligent conduct of Ethicon.
05/05/2015 - Women from around the country who have been harmed by Bayer's Essure birth control/sterilization device rallied today in San Fransisco to raise awareness about the Essure procedure and injuries the device can cause. Essure is advertised as a form of nonsurgical tubal ligation, but it is in fact, a painful surgical procedure. The group made their voices heard in front of the annual ACOG (American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology) meeting held at the Moscone Center in San Fransisco.
05/03/2015 - This week Boston Scientific announced it had settled the first portion of thousands of legal claims filed against it by women suffering injuries from its transvaginal mesh products. The affected women were implanted with vaginal mesh products manufactured by Boston Scientific to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Many women were forced to endure several painful surgeries to have the eroded mesh removed from their bodies. Boston Scientific indicated it expected to pay nearly $119 million to resolve 2,970 cases.
04/27/2014 - Ford Motor Company announced last week that it will be recalling 390,000 vehicles due to defective door latches, the latest in a series of recalls for door latch issues.

04/27/2015 - FDA records reveal there has been a fifth death associated with the highly controversial Essure birth control device. Despite the demands of thousand of women nationwide, Bayer refuses to acknowledge the significant harm and injuries this device is inflicting upon thousands of women.
04/26/2015 - For thousands of women suffering serious injuries after being implanted with the Essure sterilization device, one of the most frustrating obstacles they face is the lack of support by their implanting physicians. Hundreds of women with debilitating symptoms feel ignored and diminished when their own doctors readily dismiss their complaints.
04/24/2015 - As transvaginal mesh cases continue to be litigated across the country, some meaningful headway is being made towards a global settlement of thousands of mesh cases. Some manufacturers such as American Medical Systems are actively negotiating settlement agreements while other companies are being dragged rather unwillingly to the settlement table.
04/22/2015 - The first cases involving GranFlo and NaturaLyte dialysis solutions are scheduled to start trial on January 11, 2016 and February 16, 2016.

Woodlock in the district of Massachusetts.
04/20/2015 - Americans spend an astounding $33 billion a year on dietary weight loss supplements, which claim everything from improved cognitive functioning to weight loss to increased muscle mass.

Zimmer stresses that the recall is voluntary, despite the FDA issuing a notice for a Class II Recall for all lots and sizes of the Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate knee implant. There are more than 11,650 devices, which may be affected by the recall.
04/14/2015 - AstraZeneca’s new diabetes drug, Onglyza may be linked to an increased death rate according to preliminary studies reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA has been extremely cautious regarding heart risks of diabetes medications following the catastrophic results of Avandia. An FDA advisory panel will meet today to discuss the safety of Onglyza and a similar drug called Nesina, manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., the same company who developed Actos. The advisory panel was formed to review a trial of more than 16,000 patients who were taking Onglyza and had an increased risk of hospitalization due to heart failure.
04/14/2015 - The country’s first Zoloft trial commenced last Thursday in St. Louis claiming that the popular antidepressant taken by women during pregnancy can cause serious and permanent birth defects. In this first trial, Plaintiff Kristyn Pesante claims her Zoloft use during pregnancy caused her son, Logyn Pesante to be born with multiple heart defects. Logyn was born with a transposition of the great arteries, known as TGA, in which the two main arteries of the heart are in the wrong place. He has suffered through six operations, over 25 procedures and lives with a pacemaker due to his condition. There are similar suits across the country in both state and federal court pending against Pfizer, the manufacturer of Zoloft.

Fischer for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists shed some light on the problems women implanted with vaginal mesh continue to experience even after removal surgery attempts. The article, entitled, “What is New in the Use of Mesh in Vaginal Surgery” looked at data published in the last year on vaginal mesh. One of the most important points discussed in the article is that removing the problematic vaginal mesh does not always cure the problem.
04/08/2015 - DePuy Orthopaedics announced it is accepting claims from ASR hip implant recipients who underwent revision surgery between August 31, 2013 and January 30, 2015 for defective ASR hip implants. However, the deadline to submit these claims is May 1, 2015. This second round of settlements offers similar benefits to the first program. Each individual claimant who meets the criteria begins with a base award of $250,000.
