Johnson & Johnson (J&J)’s DePuy subsidiary unit was found liable for defectively designed metal-on-metal hip implant, in the first of 10,750 lawsuits over the device to go to trial.
According to a British health agency, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), millions of people worldwide who have received metal-on-metal hip replacement may need to get blood tests for the rest of their lives.
Many metal hip replacement systems contain chromium and cobalt in the ball-and-socket device, which became popular because they would be more durable to younger, more active hip patients.

Birth Injuries Caused by Zoloft
Use of Zoloft (sertraline hydrochloride), an antidepressant during pregnancy has been shown to cause serious and life-threatening birth defects. When taken during pregnancy, Zoloft has been associated with devastating birth defects, such as:

- Spina Bifida/Neural Tube Defects
- Club Foot
- Abdominal and Cranial Birth Defects
Pradaxa Brain Hemorrhage and Bleeding Risks
Taking Pradaxa, are you playing Russian Roulette with a potentially lethal drug? Taking your life into your hands should not come down to a flip of the coin.
There is no antidote or treatment to reverse the bleeding side effects of Pradaxa. Pradaxa, the new blood thinner does not have a “reversing agent” that allows doctors to stop the bleeding. Pradaxa (dabigatran) is a blood thinner, which was introduced by Boehringer Ingelheim in October 2010 as a superior alternative to Coumadin (warfarin) for prevention of strokes among individuals with atrial fibrillation.

Actos Bladder Cancer News Update
Actos (pioglitazone) is an oral diabetes drug that was granted FDA approval in 1999 as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes to help reduce insulin resistance.
Throughout the United States, a number of patients who took Actos, and now diagnosed with bladder cancer are filing lawsuits against Takeda Pharmaceuticals for failing to fully research the side effects of the medication or adequately warn about the risk of bladder cancer.
According to a recent medical study, patients taking the newer diabetes drugs were affected by pancreatic cell growth and damage that may turn cancerous. The study, by UCLA Medical Center, provides evidence of increased pre-cancerous changes in diabetic patients using Incretin Mimetic drugs such as Januvia, Byetta and Victoza.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, it was reviewing unpublished data by medical researchers which suggest that pre-cancerous cellular changes may be associated with Type 2 diabetes drugs known as incretin mimetics, including Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Byetta and Novo Nordisk’s Victoza.
