Share Article

The Pennsylvania lawfirm of Marcus & Mack have announced that they joined forces with a national law firm to help those injured by Oral Sodium Phosphate (OSP) products. The FDA issued an alert about oral sodium phosphates and the report that they were causing acute phosphate nephropathy in patients. Many patients suffered severe kidney injuries. The attorneys are reviewing and accepting cases for people who used OSP products for bowel cleansing before colonoscopy.

the recall decision was made to address the FDA's determination that oral sodium phosphate solutions used for bowel preparation prior to medical procedures such as colonoscopy should be available by prescription, and consumers should not be using over the counter products for bowel cleansing.

The law firm of Marcus & Mack in Indiana, Pennsylvania has joined forces with the Tate Law Group to help those who may have been injured by Oral Sodium Phosphate (OSP). This action is a result of the December 11th announcement by the FDA alerting that Oral Sodium Phosphate products used for bowel cleansing prior to colonoscopy or other procedures may cause acute phosphate nephropathy.

The FDA stated that they have become aware of reports of acute nephropathy, a type of acute injury, associated with the use of oral sodium phosphate products.

The FDA is now requiring the manufacturer of Visicol and OsmoPrep to add Boxed Warning to the labeling for these prescriptions.

On the same day as the FDA alert, Fleet Laboratories voluntarily recalled its over-the-counter Phospho-soda products. Fleet issued a statement that "the recall decision was made to address the FDA's determination that oral sodium phosphate solutions used for bowel preparation prior to medical procedures such as colonoscopy should be available by prescription, and consumers should not be using over the counter products for bowel cleansing."

Acute phosphate nephropathy, also known as nephrocalcinosis, is a very serious kidney injury associated with the deposits of calcium-phosphate crystals in the renal tubes that can require a patient to need dialysis or a kidney transplant. In the most severe cases, acute phosphate nephropathy can lead to acute renal failure and even death.

The attorneys at Marcus & Mack are accepting clients who have suffered a kidney injury that may be the result of the use of an oral sodium phosphate.
