there were statistically significant associations between valproate exposure and spina bifida, malformations of the heart.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 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 Depakote Lawsuit.
A new study published on March 6th, 2013 in the international neuroscience journal Acta Neurologica Scandinavica revealed that valproate (Depakote) is linked with birth defects. Depakote (valproate) is a drug, manufactured by Abbott Laboratories, most commonly prescribed for psychiatric conditions like manic depressive disorder (bipolar disorder), epilepsy and to prevent migraine headaches. The results of the study revealed that there were statistically significant associations between valproate exposure and spina bifida, malformations of the heart and great vessels, digits, and skull bones, among others.
According to court documents, on January 25th, 2013, a South Carolina man filed a lawsuit in Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2013cv00082) alleging he suffered birth defects as a result of his mother’s ingestion of Depakote while pregnant with him.
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 Depakote severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Depakote 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 January 23rd 2013, the Lancet Neurology published the results of a new study revealing that children of mothers who take Depakote during pregnancy have lower IQ scores at age 6 compared to those exposed to other antiepileptic drugs.
