04/16/2015 - Zimmer Inc. has issued a voluntary recall for thousands of its Persona Knee implants, prompting the Food and Drug Administration to issue a warning that the implants can loosen, resulting in potentially serious complications. 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.
04/13/2015 - Potential claimants contemplating litigation often ask whether the litigation is a class-action lawsuit or a multidistrict litigation (MDL) and what the differences are between the two.
04/09/2015 - A recent article authored by Dr. John R. 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.
04/07/2015 - In approving a new medication, the FDA must rely on numerous clinical studies to obtain information regarding the drug’s safety and efficacy. Most consumers are unaware that the FDA consistently reviews hundreds of clinical sites, which perform such clinical studies. However, according to a recent study released in JAMA Internal Medicine, there may be a number of errors or “departures from good clinical practice” in these studies.
04/06/2015 - Patients who received a recalled ABGII Modular Hip System or a Rejuvenate Modular Hip System and underwent revision surgery prior to November 3, 2014 still have until April 17, 2015 to enroll in the current settlement program. On November 3, 2014, Stryker announced a $1.45 billion settlement to compensate patients who received a recalled hip device. Patients who had one hip implanted and removed prior to November 3, 2014 are eligible for $300,000 and patients who underwent a double hip replacement and revision can receive $600,000.
04/06/2015 - Over 8,000 men and women across the country have decided to hold Takeda Pharmaceutical responsible for their contracting bladder cancer after taking the diabetes medication Actos. Recent verdicts across the country show that juries agree with the claimants and are taking the claims quite seriously.
04/03/2015 - Thousands of women injured by the Essure sterilization device may be a step closer to having the device banned from the market. These women have taken the bull by the horns, refusing to accept both the continued sale of this dangerous device in the U.S. and the blocked path to the courthouse due to a legal defense called preemption.
04/02/2015 - Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., el fabricante de medicamentos para la diabetes, Actos ha ofrecido a pagar más de $ 2.2 millones de dólares para resolver varios miles de reclamaciones de pacientes que contrajeron cáncer de vejiga después de tomar Actos.

04/02/2015 - Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., the manufacturer of diabetes medication, Actos has offered to pay more than $2.2 billion to resolve several thousand claims of patients who contracted bladder cancer after taking Actos.

04/01/2015 - More than 300 lawsuits are now pending in federal court in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana according to the recent docket report issued on March 16, 2015. The federal courts cases accuse Johnson & Johnson and Bayer Healthcare of failing to warn users regarding the risks associated with use, including life-threatening episodes of internal bleeding as well as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and stroke.
04/01/2015 - Consumers and generic drug manufacturers clashed last Friday at an FDA-sponsored public hearing concerning a proposed FDA rule, which would allow generic drug companies to unilaterally update their warning labels in response to post market safety concerns. Currently, generic drug makers are required to update their warning labels only at the specific request of the FDA.
03/31/2015 - Despite evidence linking Zofran use during pregnancy to a variety of birth defects, manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) appears to have ignored such evidence and illegally promoted Zofran to pregnant women to combat severe morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). While ongoing studies continue to shed light on birth defects and congenital malformations linked to Zofran use during pregnancy, it would seem GSK knew of these risks, but simply disregarded them.
03/27/2015 - A close study of the evolution of the Essure birth control device leads one from disbelief to outrage. How this device has flourished in the marketplace despite the serious and widespread injuries inflicted on its users is both heartbreaking and anger provoking. The entire process by which Essure has been implanted in hundreds of thousands of women is egregiously flawed and needs to be changed.
03/27/2015 - The litigation involving the Mirena IUD is moving forward as cases are now being proposed by both sides to be selected for future trials. According to a March 17, 2015 court order, both parties in the litigation must select seven cases for potential inclusion in the second pool of cases to be tried.
03/25/2015 - Patients who received a recalled ABGII Modular Hip System or a Rejuvenate Modular Hip System and underwent revision surgery prior to November 3, 2014 still have until March 30, 2015 to enroll in the current settlement program.

Additionally, vaginal mesh manufacturers may be in serious discussions to settle the thousands of mesh claims currently pending in state and federal courts. It is imperative that outstanding claims be filed quickly or some claims may be forever barred.
03/19/2015 - This month, the Food and Drug Administration approved a new intrauterine device (IUD) that is designed and promoted with affordability as a primary concern. Liletta is currently being used in Europe and is launching in the US this spring.
03/19/2015 - Recent litigation concerning the widespread General Motors ignition switch defects revealed that General Motors’ executives may have participated in a cover-up of the defects for years prior to the 2014 recalls.
03/14/2015 - It would seem axiomatic that the duties to ensure the safety of a medication and to provide warnings of all the inherent risks would fall upon the drug’s manufacturer, regardless of whether the drug is a generic drug or the original brand name medication. Unfortunately this is not the law and consumers of generic medications are a great risk for being without remedy or compensation if injured by a generic drug.
03/14/2015 - A relatively unknown medication, Benicar, is the subject of lawsuits across the country and a recent $39 million whistleblower settlement. Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) is a drug often prescribed to control blood pressure. Unfortunately a common complaint among users is sprue-like enteropathy, a rare but extremely nasty condition, which causes uncontrollable diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems.
03/13/2015 - Thousands of women across the county have been seriously injured by a product, which may have been illegally granted preemption and immunity by the FDA. Essure is a permanent birth control method wherein two metal coils are placed inside the fallopian tubes. Over the next several months, scar tissue is supposed to grow and surround the coils, blocking conception.
03/12/2015 - Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon, settled a bellwether transvaginal mesh case mid-trial in the multidistrict litigation pending in West Virginia. Ethicon settled the case on the fifth day of trial after another jury rendered a $5.7 million verdict in a related suit last week.
03/12/2015 - The US Food and Drug Administration is warning doctors against over-prescribing testosterone boosting drugs for men, particularly for those men who have not been diagnosed with hypogonadism, a form of abnormally low testosterone. Last year, more than 2.3 million American men used testosterone gels, patches, pills and injections to feel younger and more virile, and they have come to believe that testosterone is the fountain of youth.
03/07/2015 - Thousands of men and women across the country who suffered damages from their metal-on-metal hip implants have filed suit determined to hold Johnson & Johnson accountable for their injuries. A handful of cases have been tried with juries holding the hip implant manufacturer responsible, finding the implants had a nearly 40 percent failure rate.
03/06/2015 - This week a California jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay a woman $5.7 million who claimed the company’s Abbrevo vaginal mesh implants eroded, forcing her to have additional surgery to repair the damage.
03/06/2015 - A number of women have decided to hold mesh manufacturers accountable after suffering damages from these products. Recent verdicts across the country show these vaginal mesh claims are viable and juries are taking the claims quite seriously.
03/05/2015 - U.S. District Court Judge Donovan Frank has recently ordered the registration deadline for patients who were implanted with defective Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABG II hip implants to be extended from March 2 to March 16, 2015. This extension will help ensure that all eligible claimants, who accept the settlement terms whether or not their complaints have been filed, can participate in the settlement.
03/04/2015 - It has been nearly nine years since the Food and Drug Administration first released its safety advisory with regard to Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) and their use by pregnant women. There are several SSRI birth defect trials scheduled to start in March and April 2015. As of the end of 2014, there were nearly 200 lawsuits pending in the multidistrict litigation in Cole County Circuit Court in Missouri.
03/02/2014 - A U.S. safety regulator ordered Takata Corporation to preserve all air-bag inflators removed through a recall process as evidence for a federal investigation and ongoing private civil litigation. It was the first time in history that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has ordered a company to preserve evidence for private litigation.
