FDA warns about general anesthetic in late pregnancies

We have previously discussed the role the federal Food and Drug Administration plays in helping regulate the pharmaceutical industry and ensuring a flow of safe, effective medications to patients throughout the United States. Readers may remember that one method FDA uses to help meet this goal is by issuing warnings that are printed on labels that come with drugs that are meant to inform both medical professionals and patients about the potential harm a certain medication may cause. This allows doctors and patients to weigh the benefits and risks of any given course of pharmaceutical treatment and come to a conclusion with which both are comfortable.

Firm Partner Dennis Reich Appointed to the Taxotere Settlement Negotiating Team

Taxotere is a chemotherapy drug that can cause the devastating side effect of permanent hair loss. As part of an effort to try the cases in a systematic and cost-effective manner, multidistrict litigation (MDL) has been ordered, with the pretrial proceedings being consolidated in the Western District of Louisiana. In addition, as part of this streamlining process, a panel of lawyers on both the plaintiffs' and defendants' side have been appointed to the Taxotere Settlement Negotiating Team. One of these lawyers includes Reich & Binstock partner Dennis Reich, a founder of our law firm.

Pharmaceutical liability and Tarceva DOJ settlement

We have previously discussed on this blog the various ways in which the federal government attempts to regulate the marketing and sale of various pharmaceutical products. While this is most often done through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with an eye toward preventing harm to the public, at times other federal agencies may need to become involved. One of these, is the Department of Justice (DOJ) which will sue companies when they have violated federal law.

Taxotere and Permanent Hair Loss... Why the Manufacturers have Dirt on Their Hands

It's difficult to go through life without being touched by cancer in some capacity, whether you are personally struck by the disease or have a loved one or friend who is. A cancer diagnosis is both devastating and life-altering. Cancer steals  time and leaves scares, both visible and invisible. The treatments can sometimes feel worse than the disease and can include side effects ranging from fatigue to pain to nausea and vomiting and so much more.

FDA approval of warnings may affect pharmaceutical liability


Previous posts here have discussed the federal Food and Drug Administration in a few different contexts. This agency is responsible for the approval of the use and marketing of pharmaceutical products in Texas and the rest of the United States, and much of its activity may be relevant to people who have been victims of negligence on the part of a prescribing physician or drug manufacturer. Because the FDA is involved with many aspects of the process of bringing medicines to market, it is often the subject of disputes between plaintiffs and defendants.

Pharmaceutical liability verdict hits major drug manufacturer

Several weeks ago we noted that a major 'bellwether' case involving pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson had settled for an undisclosed amount. To recap, that lawsuit, which many observers felt may set a standard for recovery in such instances, related to the drug Risperdal, an anti-psychotic medication marketed by J&J. Recent news shows one reason the pharmaceutical company may have wanted to settle that suit, as a large jury verdict was returned against the corporation in a similar case.
