St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
Lawyers providing legal representation for women nationwide in talcum powder lawsuits announce an expansion of their website, the Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Center. The new information provides an in-depth look at existing research, current and historical, that indicates a link between the use of talcum powder and ovarian cancer diagnoses. These attorneys provide no-cost, no-obligation case review to women and the family members of women who have used talcum powder for perineal hygiene during their life and have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
This comprehensive collection of talcum powder cancer research serves as a public resource to individuals searching for more information. The studies vary in their results, and together paint a complete picture of what medical professionals today understand about talcum powder cancer. The studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals over the past four decades.
The most recent talcum powder cancer research, “Genital powder use and risk of ovarian cancer: a pooled analysis of 8,525 cases and 9,859 controls,” was published on June 12, 2013 in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.* By gathering together the results of eight previous research papers on the subject, this recent meta-analysis gives an overview of existing information. The conclusion of the research indicates that women who routinely use talcum powder products for genital hygiene face a 20-30% increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. This study is seen as an update to a previous meta-analysis, which compiled data from 16 previous observational research projects, the results of which were published in 2003.**
Women who believe their ovarian cancer diagnosis may be linked to their use of talcum powder have filed lawsuits around the nation. To date, just one of these lawsuits have been settled, Deane Berg v. Johnson & Johnson.*** According to official court documents, Deane Berg was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had a long history of talcum powder use for female hygiene. A jury in United States District Court in South Dakota determined there was a link between Ms. Berg’s cancer and talcum powder use, according to court documents. This lawsuit was filed against Johnson & Johnson, relating to two of its hygiene products: Shower-to-Shower and Johnson’s Baby Powder, according to the court documents. The case was concluded in November of 2013.
