01/23/2015 - Philadelphia Court Administrative Judge, Kevin Dougherty has established a mass tort docket for Xarelto blood injury cases filed against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, according to an order issued on Wednesday.

01/20/2015 - 2014 was a banner year for Actos bladder litigation. There were eight Actos bladder lawsuits that went to trial against Actos manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., and five of these resulted in jury verdicts for the plaintiffs.

01/15/2015 - For years, regulators have relied on reports from doctors and patients regarding negative side effects of medication and medical devices. Although the FDA collects hundreds of thousands of adverse reports each year, this constitutes only a handful of the negative side effects and injuries suffered by the American public. Researchers estimate that nearly 90 percent of the negative effects or injuries go unreported so it can take years for the FDA to detect serious problems in medications and/or devices.
01/12/2015 - Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Bayer Healthcare, the manufacturer of the Yaz and Yasmin birth control pills. These lawsuits were consolidated into a multi-district litigation (MDL) overseen by the honorable Judge David Herndon in the Southern District of Illinois.

12/20/2014 - In 2012, 64 people were killed and more than a hundred others injured by contaminated injectable steroid medication, which federal and state investigators traced to three lots of methylprednisolone acetate injections produced by the New England Compounding Center (NECC) in Framingham, Massachusetts.

12/12/2014 - The FDA recently issued new guidelines warning patients of the dangers associated with the use of laparoscopic power morcellators in hysterectomy (removal of uterus) and myomectomy (removal of fibroids) procedures.

12/10/2014 - Takata Corporation, the manufacturer of millions of defective airbags, is blatantly defying demands by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to expand the recall of defective airbags beyond a limited geographic region to encompass the rest of the nation.

Judges overseeing previous trials have criticized Takeda for their actions but have not levied punishment nor fines accordingly.
12/05/2014 - Bayer AG and Johnson & Johnson, manufacturers of Xarelto, are vigorously fighting a motion to consolidate lawsuits over the blood-thinning drug blamed for hundreds of bleeding related injuries and deaths. The six federal judges on the Multidistrict Litigation Panel heard arguments this week whether the Xarelto cases should be consolidated. Attorneys for patients, who took Xarelto, requested that 21 lawsuits be consolidated before the U.S. District Judge David Herndon in East St. Louis, Illinois, for pretrial proceedings.
11/25/2014 - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the country’s top health regulator, warned Monday that morcellators, a common surgical tool used during hysterectomies, should not be used on most women, due to cancer risks. The FDA now warns against using laparoscopic power morcellators in the removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) or fibroids (myomectomy) in the vast majority of women. Effective immediately, the FDA is calling for immediate “black box” warnings for laparoscopic power morcellators, the strongest caution the agency issues.
11/25/2014 - Boston Scientific suffered significant back-to-back losses in its first two federal court transvaginal mesh trials. On Thursday, a West Virginia federal court jury ordered the company to pay $18.5 million in damages to four women who blamed their injuries on the company’s Obtryx device.

11/13/2014 - A New Jersey appeals court ruled yesterday that failure-to-warn claims against makers of generic Reglan are not preempted to the extent those companies failed to update the warnings on their labels. This decision in In re Reglan Litigation potentially affects a large number of the 650 pending lawsuits consolidated in Middlesex County.
11/12/2014 - The Institute for Safe Medicine Practices (ISMP) released a report, which revealed the number of adverse event reports associated with the blood-thinning drug, Xarelto (rivaroxaban) now surpass those from competitor Pradaxa.
11/11/2014 - On November 3, 2014 Stryker announced it had settled litigation for the recall of the Rejuvenate and ABG II artificial hip implants. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Stryker will provide a base payment of $300,000 to patients who received an ABG II or Rejuvenate hip system and then underwent revision surgery by November 3, 2014 to remove and replace the defective devices.
11/07/2014 - There have been many recent recalls by a number of car manufacturers for vehicles equipped with airbags manufactured by Takata Corporation. Over 10 million at-risk vehicles have been recalled for airbag issues in the last 5 years with over 3 million being recalled since June 2014.
11/05//2014 - Boston Scientific is set to start its first two federal court trials over claims by women who allege they were injured by its transvaginal mesh devices.

11/04/2014 - Stryker Corporation, the manufacturer of artificial hip implants, reached a settlement with thousands of patients over its recalled implants and agreed to pay more than $1 billion to resolve the claims.

11/04/2014 - Due to microbial contamination in samples of the blood thinner, Xarelto, Johnson & Johnson recalled 13,500 bottles of the drug. This recall comes shortly after patients who claimed the drug caused uncontrollable bleeding and death filed several new lawsuits.
11/03/2014 - According to sources who wish to remain anonymous as they were not authorized to speak publicly, Johnson and Johnson may pay more than $250 million to resolve additional lawsuits over its ASR hip implants which were excluded from last year’s $2.5 billion settlement.
