Hundreds of testosterone treatment lawsuits (http://www.testosteronelawsuithub.com/) filed on behalf of men who were allegedly injured due to their use of AndroGel and other low testosterone therapies continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a Case Management Order dated October 31, 2014, the Court has established a schedule which governs certain matters pertaining to written discovery. Among other things, the Order directs AbbVie, Inc. defendants to provide plaintiffs’ attorneys with interrogatory responses and references to requested documents on or before November 14, 2014. (In re: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Product Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2545)
“Our Firm has heard from many men who allegedly suffered heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and other serious cardiovascular problems due their use of low testosterone therapy drugs. We are pleased that the federal testosterone lawsuits are moving forward, and will continue to monitor their progress,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is now offering free case reviews to victims of heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and other life-threatening heart problems that were allegedly caused by prescription testosterone medication.
Testosterone Treatment Litigation
Court documents indicate that more than 220 testosterone treatment lawsuits have been filed in the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of men who allegedly experienced serious heart problems due to their use of AndroGel and similar drugs. Among other things, plaintiffs in these cases allege that the manufacturers of low testosterone therapies failed to warn doctors and patients about their potential cardiovascular risks, and concealed those dangers from the public.
Since January, testosterone replacement medications have been the subject of a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) safety review that was launched after two studies suggested that testosterone replacement therapies might increase the likelihood that older men, or those with pre-existing heart disease, will experience heart attacks, strokes or death. In September, a panel of outside advisors convened by the FDA recommended that the manufacturers of the medications be required to conduct studies of their cardiovascular side effects. The advisors also recommended that the labeling for low testosterone therapies be revised to make clear they have not been shown to lessen low libido, fatigue, muscle loss and other symptoms commonly experienced by aging men.**
Victims of heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and other cardiovascular events allegedly related to the use of low testosterone therapy may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the medication they used.
