HELP OTHERS

Spread the word so that others, who have suffered from bladder cancer, can understand their rights.

Taking Actos has been found to increase the risk of bladder cancer by 40%.

It is alleged that Takeda Pharmaceuticals, (the maker of Actos pioglitazone HCI, also known as duetact, actoplus met, and actoplus met XR) was negligent in testing and developing Actos and they had knowledge of the bladder cancer risk associated with the drug.  

Takeda announced, inApril 2015, that it would pay up to $2.4 billion to settle Actos lawsuits.

Medical expenses and missed wages could be recovered if you took Actos before December of 2011 and were subsequently diagnosed with bladder cancer.

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.

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.

Hernia Mesh

Hernia Mesh

EITHICON PHYSIOMESH HERNIA

Lawsuits have been filed by thousands of people who were injured by hernia mesh patches and plugs. In 2016, Ethicon pulled Physiomesh off the market due to higher rates of surgery complications.

Ethicon Physiomesh Hernia Product

In May 2016 Ethicon initiated a voluntary recall of its Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh (for laparoscopic use) following an analysis of unpublished data from two (2) large independent hernia registries. The recurrence/reoperation rates after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using Ethicon Physiomesh were higher than the average rates of the comparator meshes among patients in these registries. Ethicon believes the higher rates to be a multifactorial issue (including possible product characteristics, operative and patient factors), but has not been able to fully characterize these factors. Consequently, Ethicon recalled Physiomesh from the global market. This is a 510(k) device.

THernia Mesh Patches & Plugs

Hernias have a high risk of re-opening (called “recurrence“). To reduce this risk, most surgeons stitch in a mesh patch or plug to help reinforce muscles and connective tissues. They can be synthetic or non-synthetic, permanent or absorbable. Some patches work better than others. For example, Physiomesh was withdrawn from the market due to higher rates of recurrence.

Hernia Mesh Surgery Complications

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Scar-like tissue that sticks tissues together (adhesion)
  • Blockage of the large or small intestine
  • Organ perforation
  • Mesh migration

  • Needing another surgery

If you or a loved one underwent a hernia repair since 2006, and have been experiencing problems, Call now you might be entitled to money damages, Goldberg Attorneys, (800) 600-6014

On May 15, 2015, the FDA issued a Drug Safety Communication warning that Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors had been linked to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).

Nearly 26 million Americans suffer from Type II diabetes, and Invokana® has become a hugely popular drug prescribed to help regulate blood glucose levels. When the drug was approved by the FDA in 2013, federal regulators stipulated that Janssen complete five post-market studies in order to measure Invokana® side effects. The first users were thus essentially guinea pigs for this new drug, and many have suffered kidney impairment, ketoacidosis, heart attack or stroke as a result. Invokana® lawsuits aim to recover compensation for individuals and families who have suffered as a result of Invokana® side effects, stating the company knew but failed to warn consumers of the risks posed by the medication.

If you or a loved one experienced kidney failure, kidney impairment, cardiac problems, blood acid problems, or ketoacidosis, Goldberg Injury Attorneys believe you may have grounds to file an Invokana® injury lawsuit for damages, harm, or loss suffered as a result of a kidney problems or ketoacidosis. It is likely that the makers of Invokana® were aware of the risks of heart attack, kidney problems, and ketoacidosis, yet have continued to market their products widely. If you would like more information to see if you may be entitled to money damages, please contact Goldberg Attorneys, (800) 600-6014.
