may be associated with an increased risk for osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, wrist, or spine in patients who received multiple daily doses and long-term PPI therapy
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Nexium Side Effects lawsuits.
Court data updated on March 5th, 2013, by the US Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation (MDL), indicate that there are 42 actions currently pending in the Nexium MDL (U.S. District Court, Central District of California, MDL 2404). Nexium, manufactured by AstraZeneca, is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) prescribed for the treatment of heartburn, acid-reflux, and inflammation of the esophagus. Plaintiffs allege that Nexium may cause a variety of bone ailments —in particular, osteoporosis, loss of bone density, and bone fractures— and that AstraZeneca failed to adequately warn of these potential adverse side effects.
The pediatric focused safety review on Nexium discussed during the FDA Pediatric Advisory Committee on March 14th, 2013, revealed that “observational studies suggest that proton pump inhibitor therapy may be associated with an increased risk for osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, wrist, or spine in patients who received multiple daily doses and long-term PPI therapy”.
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 case of alleged Nexium severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Nexium 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.”
On December 31st, 2012, 512 plaintiffs filed a massive product liability lawsuit in California Southern District Court (case no. 3:2012cv03083) alleging they suffered bone problems from their use of Nexium.
