SJS and TEN are rare conditions that are often caused by an allergic reaction to certain medications. The legal team at Wormington & Bollinger is litigating against the pharmaceutical company Prometheus. It is alleged that Prometheus failed to adequately warn consumers of the potentially life-threatening side effects of Zyloprim, an anti-gout medication.

Wormington & Bollinger

The attorneys at Wormington & Bollinger have filed a product liability lawsuit against Prometheus Laboratories, Inc., the manufacturer of anti-gout medication Zyloprim (allopurinol) (Turner, et al v. Prometheus Laboratories, Inc; Cause No. 19STCV26461 in The Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles). This prescription medication is made and marketed by the San Diego-based pharmaceutical company, Prometheus. Plaintiff alleges in the lawsuit that Prometheus failed to fully warn consumers and physicians of the harmful side effects of Zyloprim, including Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN).

Plaintiff’s Complaint alleges that SJS and TEN are extremely serious conditions that are often times fatal or result in catastrophic permanent injuries. Both can be caused by a reaction to a specific medication, such as drugs used to treat gout. Allopurinol is a known cause of SJS and TEN, yet Prometheus failed to warn consumers of important information concerning this potential side effect.
