St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
AndroGel lawsuits filed as part of the Testosterone Replacement Therapy Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2545, continue to grow in number, report attorneys handling AndroGel lawsuit claims for The Onder Law Firm. According to court documents* available on August 25, 2014, the ¬multi-district litigation (MDL) for AndroGel lawsuit cases now includes at least 209 cases. While court proceedings continue to move forward, new AndroGel Lawsuit claims will still be accepted.
According to court documents from the Northern District of Illinois U.S. District Court where AndroGel lawsuit cases have been consolidated, the parties met on August 22, 2014 to discuss routine matters related to discovery, leadership responsibilities, and coordination between the U.S District Court litigation and AndroGel lawsuit claims in State Courts. The Judge overseeing the AndroGel lawsuit MDL is the Honorable Matthew F. Kennelly.
AbbVie, Inc. is the defendant most frequently named in AndroGel lawsuit claims filed through MDL No. 2545. However, several other companies are included as defendants, according to the most recent case list. Other defendants include Actavis, Inc., Endo Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Pfizer, Inc., Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Pharmacia & Upjohn Company, Inc., Abbott Laboratories, Acrux, Ltc., Eli Lilly & Co., and Fagron, Inc.
AndroGel lawsuit claims address the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular problems associated with AndroGel and other testosterone drugs. Approved specifically to treat hypogonadism, or the absence of serum testosterone in males, testosterone products are now widely prescribed in the United States. In two distinct FDA warnings on AndroGel and other testosterone drugs, federal regulators have warned that excessive arterial and venous blood clots are a risk of testosterone drugs such as AndroGel. Heart attack and stroke are side effects linked to arterial blood clots, the subject of an FDA warning from January 31, 2014.* Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism are health conditions that can be caused by venous blood clots. This health condition and its connection to AndroGel and other testosterone drugs is outlined in another FDA warning, from June 19, 2014. **
MDL No. 2545 includes AndroGel lawsuit claims for arterial blood clot problems only, including plaintiffs who have suffered from heart attack and stroke.
