Florida Trasylol Lawsuit Lawyer
Trasylol Linked to Kidney Damage, Heart Attacks & Strokes
According to a CBS 60 Minutes report on February 17, 2008, more than 22,000 additional lives could have been saved had the FDA taken action to remove Trasylol from the market back in 2006.
Trasylol, a blood clotting drug (aprotinin) produced by Bayer AG, is used to stop bleeding during heart bypass surgery. Since most bypass patients don’t know which drugs they are given during surgery, most Trasylol patients are unaware that they received the drug. If you or a loved was injured by Trasylol you can contact a Florida personal injury lawyer at Freidin Brown, P.A. to take legal action.
Studies Demonstrate Serious Side Effects
The drug has been the subject of much debate after a January 2006 publication published two studies that linked the drug’s use to kidney damage, heart attacks, and strokes compared to other drugs. It was a Canadian study that confirmed the drug’s link to these side effects which lead the FDA and Bayer to take action and stopped the sale of the drug in November 2007. As a result of one of the earlier studies, Bayer AG is also under scrutiny for failing to disclose its own study results earlier to the FDA due to what a company investigation later characterized as a “regrettable human error” and to the FDA for failing to act quickly.
