What is Valsartan?
Valsartan, is a blood pressure and heart medication. This chemical is a known carcinogen. Several drug companies have recalled their medications containing Valsartan. Check this Valsartan recall list for the specific drugs that have been recalled.

Why is Valsartan defective?

It has been determined that some medications containing Valsartan are contaminated with the cancer-causing substances N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and/or N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA). The contaminated batches found were produced by the Chinese company Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals and the Indian company Hetero Labs Limited. 

Symptoms of overexposure to NDMA include:

• Headaches

• Fever

Nausea

Jaundice

Vomiting               

Abdominal Cramps

Enlarged Liver

Dizziness

Reduced function of the liver, kidneys, and lungs

The FDA reminds patients taking medication containing Valsartan to continue taking their current medicine until their doctor or pharmacist provides a replacement or alternative treatment option. 

Roundup

Roundup is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops.

In March 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that being exposed to Roundup is likely to cause cancer, even though Monsanto had previously marketed this product to consumers as being “environmentally friendly” and “biodegradable.” Roundup has since been linked to serious side effects, which include: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, lymphocytic lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and more.

What is Taxotere®?

Taxotere®, generically named Docetaxel, is an anti-cancer chemotherapy drug approved for the treatment of different kinds of cancer, including breast cancer. Taxotere® is manufactured by Sanofi™ and was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1996 for the treatment of metastic breast cancer.

Why Taxotere® Is Defective?

Although, temporary hair loss may be a possible side effect of chemotherapy, an alarming number of research studies show that Taxotere® can be linked to permanent hair loss. Researchers at the National Cancer Conference reported in 2014 that permanent hair loss was a side effect in 10-15% of chemotherapy patients who took Taxotere®.

Furthermore, a study by the Annals of Oncology, noted Taxotere®’s devastating effect on a patient’s quality of life.

At Goldberg Attorneys, we truly understand how devastating permanent hair loss can be.  Our law firm is here to help you.  Call us today to find out if you have claim.

Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer

Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer

Is there a link to Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer?

Baby Powder Lawsuits Filed for Ovarian Cancer

It smells nice, evokes memories of babyhood, and babies, but talcum powder has more recently been found to cause ovarian cancer when used by women for hygiene. Johnson & Johnson, a major manufacturer of talc-based baby powder and body powder, has been accused of failing to warn consumers of the risks of talcum powder. According to a recent Harvard study, women who use talcum powder in the genital or perineal region could be at a 41% higher risk for developing ovarian cancer.

“As many as 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer each year as a result of baby powder use,” says Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease anticipated to result in more than 14,000 deaths annually, in the United States.

The first talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit was won against Johnson & Johnson in Federal Court in 2013.

If you or a loved one were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have a history of talcum powder use, then you may be eligible for financial compensation. It is not your fault.

A jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $55 million to a woman who claims talc in the company’s baby powder caused her ovarian cancer.

On Monday, a jury in St. Louis, awarded Gloria Ristesund $5 million in damages and $50 million in punitive damages, Reuters reported.

The verdict comes months after a jury ordered the company to pay $72 million to the family of an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer allegedly caused by using the company’s Baby Powder and other products which contained talc.

Metal-On-Metal Hip Replacement

METAL-ON-METAL hip replacement problems and failures are on the rise. More than a year after Johnson & Johnson issued a DePuy ASR recall for more than 90,000 potentially defective implants, new data indicates that the METAL-ON-METAL hip failure rates may be more than twice as high as prior estimates suggested.

The hip replacement lawyers at Goldberg Attorneys represent individuals throughout the United States who have experienced problems after receiving a METAL-ON-METAL hip implant.

METAL-ON-METAL hip replacements, which are a relatively new design, account for about one-third of the 250,000 hip replacements performed in recent years. They became popular due to the belief that the metal structure is more durable than other types of hip implants. However, sales have fallen recently amid concerns about problems with the design, which may cause microscopic metal particles to be shed into the body as the parts of the hip replacement rub against each other.

The FDA has issued warnings for the implanted birth control device Mirena.

The Mirena IUD has been linked to serious side effects:

  • Perforation of Uterus
  • Serious Infection or Abscess
  • Perforation of Other Organs
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Infertility
  • Death

If you or loved one had a Mirena IUD implant and had it removed, whether by surgery or in a doctor’s office, then you may be entitled to compensation. Goldberg Attorneys are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of users of the Mirena IUD. Mirena injuries can be extremely painful, and may impact the lives of victims and their families for years to come. Although Mirena has been promoted as a safe and reversible form of birth control, women may face an unreasonable risk of problems, such as spontaneous migration and uterine perforation.

More than 2 million women throughout the U.S. have used Mirena since it was introduced in December 2000, and popularity continues to rise.

The FDA received a total of 45,966 adverse event reports associated with Mirena IUD between November 1, 1997 and June 30, 2012. The FDA has previously warned Bayer about the marketing of Mirena, which failed to disclose safety risks while claiming the devices could help “busy moms” with intimacy and make them “look and feel great.”

If you have experienced serious problems following use of a Mirena IUD, call Goldberg Attorneys,(800) 600-6014, for a free, confidential consultation. You may be entitled to financial compensation.
