We continue to investigate testosterone lawsuits on behalf of men who allegedly sustained serious heart injuries due to testosterone replacement therapies.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 01, 2015
More than 270 testosterone lawsuits (http://www.testosteronelawsuithub.com/ ) are now pending in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois after being filed by plaintiffs who allege similar injuries caused by the hormone-raising medications, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.
A Case List updated on December 15th reflects the filing of 274 cases in the federal multidistrict litigation involving prescription testosterone treatments. Plaintiffs in these lawsuits similarly allege strokes, heart attacks, blood clots and other life-threatening cardiovascular problems caused by AndroGel, Testim, Androderm and other medications. According to claims, several manufacturers failed to adequately warn men about these risks, which placed thousands in danger of serious heart-related injuries.

“Our Firm is regularly monitoring developments in the federal testosterone litigation, as we continue to investigate testosterone lawsuits on behalf of men who allegedly sustained strokes, heart attacks, blood clots and other serious heart injuries due to testosterone replacement therapies,” 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 testosterone treatments.
Testosterone lawsuits have continued to mount since January 31, 2014, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it had launched a safety review of the medications. That September, a panel of FDA advisors recommended that the drugs’ labels be adjusted to remind men that the medications have not been proven effective in treating low libido, fatigue, muscle loss and other common symptoms of aging. Panelists have also advised that manufacturers of testosterone replacement therapies be required to conduct studies of their products’ effect on the heart.*
The federal testosterone litigation has continued to grow since June 2014, when it was established in the Northern District of Illinois. Men in these cases accuse a number of testosterone drug manufacturers of concealing their potentially dangerous side effects from the public in order to protect sales. Instead, they sold the medications through misleading marketing claims that offered them as a treatment for “Low T,” a condition referring to symptoms commonly experienced by men as they age, according to plaintiffs who go on to assert that many healthy men were prescribed the drugs without a true medical need.
Men who allegedly sustained heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism or other serious cardiovascular injuries following their use of prescription testosterone therapies may be entitled to join the nationwide testosterone litigation.
