San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and is now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Propecia Side Effects lawsuits.
Court data updated by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on December 16, indicate that there are 739 cases pending in the Propecia Multidistrict Litigation (U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, MDL 2331 - IN RE: Propecia-Finasteride Products Liability Litigation). Propecia is a pill, manufactured by Merck, for use in males only and indicated for the treatment of male pattern hair loss. It was approved by the FDA in 1997. The plaintiffs claim that Merck failed to warn on Propecia side effects that could cause permanent and devastating sexual dysfunction.
A new clinical study funding was announced* on August 21, by the Post-Finasteride Syndrome (PFS) Foundation at the Baylor College of Medicine, in order to determine why PFS (including Propecia) patients develop sexual dysfunction. As the Foundation clarifies, “PFS has been reported to occur in men who have taken the prescription drug finasteride to treat hair loss (under the brand name Propecia and generics), or enlarged prostates (Proscar and generics).”
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in cases of severe complications, allegedly from Propecia. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Propecia lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
Safety labeling changes approved by the FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) concerning Propecia adverse events were last updated on May 23rd, 2012: “Sexual dysfunction that continued after discontinuation of treatment, including erectile dysfunction, libido disorders, ejaculation disorders, and orgasm disorders; male infertility and/or poor seminal quality.”
