AttorneyOne, a recognized authority on law, informs on the latest news concerning the osteoporosis drug: According to court documents, on October 31st, 2012, an Illinois woman and her husband filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 3:2012cv06770) alleging she suffered femure fracture from her use of osteoporosis drugs, Fosamax and Actonel. Fosamax, manufactured by Merck, belongs to the class of drugs known as bisphosphonates. It was approved by the FDA in 1995 and developed to treat post-menopausal osteoporosis and Paget's disease of bone.
In the lawsuit plaintiff claims she was prescribed Fosamax and Actonel for more than 10 years: Actonel in 2001 and Fosamax from 2001 to 2012. She allegedly suffered weakened or brittle bones and a low energy femoral fracture as result of her long-term use of Fosamax and Actonel. AttorneyOne will inform on the latest news concerning possible Fosamax Class Action lawsuits.
A new study article, published online on October 17th, 2012 by The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, indicated that atypical femur fractures patients while taking bisphosphonates (incl. Fosamax) experienced delayed healing, prodromal pain, and persisting risk of a contralateral and/or other fracture.
