New York, NY (PRWEB) February 13, 2015
Hundreds of testosterone lawsuits (http://www.testosteronelawsuithub.com/) that allege medications like AndroGel caused plaintiffs to experience serious cardiovascular complications 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 motion filed with the Court on January 16th, plaintiffs are seeking to compel the production of files and documents relevant to AndroGel lawsuits, including those pertaining to the means in which the drug was marketed. In a response filed with the Court of February 6th, Abbvie Inc. maintains that the plaintiffs’ requests are overly broad, and that the company requires more time to respond.

“Our Firm is representing numerous testosterone lawsuit plaintiffs who were allegedly harmed by AndroGel and other prescription testosterone medications. We are pleased to see this litigation moving forward, and will be monitoring this matter closely,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free case reviews to men who may have been harmed by AndroGel and other low testosterone treatments.
Court records indicate that the testosterone litigation has been growing since the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) revealed on January 31, 2014 that it was reviewing the cardiovascular side effects allegedly associated with low testosterone therapy. Plaintiffs involved in the federal proceeding claim that their use of drugs like AndroGel caused heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and other life-threatening heart problems. They further allege that the manufacturers of the medications knowingly concealed information about these side effects from the public, and failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the potential for life-threatening heart complications. The lawsuits also assert that healthy men were induced to use low testosterone treatments by misleading marketing claims that positioned the drugs as effective remedies for symptoms associated with male aging.
In September, a panel of FDA advisors recommended that the safety labeling for all testosterone medications be revised to make clear they have not been shown to lessen symptoms associated with male aging, such as low sex drive, fatigue, and muscle loss. They also recommended that the manufacturers of testosterone replacement therapies be required to conduct studies of their cardiovascular side effects.*
Men who allegedly suffered serious cardiovascular events due to their use of prescription testosterone treatments may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related damages.
