US Drug Watchdog Recommends Blood Test to DePuy Pinnacle Metal Hip Implant Recipients to Determine Implant Failure

US Drug Watchdog aims to assist implant recipients in getting the maximum compensation for premature defects

April 22, 2014
 
he US Drug Watchdog is extremely concerned that at the end of the day most recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant will not be compensated for a premature failure of this specific type of all metal hip implant, because they did not get a very specific blood test that has been designed to measure for elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium ion's in a recipient's blood stream. The US Drug Watchdog does not want to leave one DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient behind holding the bag, stuck with an expensive hip replacement surgery, or other medical complications without doing everything possible to get the word out about this major issue. For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and a blood test that measures cobalt, and chromium levels in a recipient's blood please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
 

he US Drug Watchdog says, "While we are extremely focused on helping recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant, we are just as eager to help all recipients of any type of all metal hip implant. The sad fact is in our humble opinion the US FDA has been no-where to be found on what we consider to be the metal on metal hip implant disaster in the United States, and we consider this an insult to the taxpayers, who support this federal agency. According to court records there are about 500,000 US citizens with a all metal hip implant, and the last time the US FDA updated their information on this mess is coming up on a year and a half ago. We believe the taxpayers, and the recipients of all metal hip implants deserve much better." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Most All-Metal Hip Implant Recipients Will Never Be Compensated for Premature Failure, According to US Drug Watchdog

WASHINGTON, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The US Drug Watchdog now fears the vast majority of all metal hip implant recipients who have had a premature failure of their artificial hip implant will never receive compensation because they did not take vital proactive steps like getting a blood test to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in their blood stream, or they did not get a MRI that could have detected a premature failure be detecting tissue inflammation around the stem, or cup of the device. For more information all metal hip implant recipients can call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We can't over emphasize how incredibly vital it is for recipients of what are called metal on metal hip implants to get a blood test that is focused on cobalt, or chromium levels in a recipients blood stream. According to a December 27th 2011 New York Times article there are 500,000 US recipients of all metal hip implant, and some European health agencies are suggesting staggering rates of premature failures.

In the UK they are now mandating that recipients of an all-metal hip implant get an annual blood test to detect elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium. Our big worry is because a hip implant replacement, or what is called a revision surgery is such a ordeal many recipients would prefer not to know if their hip implant has failed, or not. This is why we are so adamant that all US recipients get a blood test that checks for elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium, and or a MRI for tissue damage. Without these tests we fear tens of thousands of US citizens will never be compensated for the premature failure of their all metal hip implant, and or the deadlines to get compensated will come, and go without the recipient ever being included in a settlement."

US Drug Watchdog Strongly Recommends Specialized Blood Test or MRI to Determine Premature DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Failure

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There is now a new vital reason why we want to hear from recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant that has to do with the part about a medical doctor now has to have recommended a revision surgery, or a revision surgery has to have occurred, if the recipient is ever going to see a dime in compensation. As we would like to explain with one call to 866-714-6466 we need recipients of this type of hip implant to get tested for a premature failure of this device, or the time for compensation eligibility could come, and go." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

April 2, 2014
 
The US Drug Watchdog is warning recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle, or any other type of all metal hip implant to not get complacent about their device, because there have been serious issues with some all metal hip implants. The Watchdog does not want one consumer stuck with enormous costs related to revision surgery, or postoperative therapy. The group is now urging recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle, or any other type of all metal hip implant to call them at 866-714-6466 so they can provide them with the specific code number for a blood test that has been designed to detect elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium in a recipient's blood, as well as information about MRI's. httP://USDrugWatchdog.Com

According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, lack of flexibility, or elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the recipients blood."

The US Drug Watchdog says, "What has us most worried is court records indicate there are 140,000 US recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle, and thousands with the Biomet M2a Magnum, and unless the recipients of these types of hip implants get proactive, and get a blood test, or a MRI they could get stuck on the curb without compensation, or reimbursement to replace the device in the event it has prematurely failed. If you are a recipient of one of these types of all metal hip implants, and you are concerned about a premature failure, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain what steps are needed to protect yourself." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Information About Metal on Metal Hip Implants From The US FDA

How do I know if I have a metal-on-metal hip implant?

Patients are usually told about the type of implant they are receiving prior to the surgery. If you are uncertain about which type you have, you should contact the orthopedic surgeon who performed your procedure.

Are there other medical effects that can occur with my metal-on-metal hip implant?

Metal-on-metal hip implants have the same adverse effects as other types of hip implants, including infection, loosening, bone loss, device or bone fracture, and joint dislocation.

In addition, metal particles from a metal-on-metal implant may cause a reaction around the joint, leading to deterioration of the tissue around the joint, loosening of the implant and failure of the device. Metal ions from a metal-on-metal implant will enter the bloodstream. There are case reports in which patients with metal-on-metal hip implants may have developed an adverse reaction to these metal ions and experienced medical problems that could have been related to their implants.

These problems included:

  • General hypersensitivity reaction (skin rash)
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Neurological changes including sensory changes (auditory, or visual impairments)
  • Psychological status change (including depression or cognitive impairment)
  • Renal function impairment
  • Thyroid dysfunction (including neck discomfort, fatigue, weight gain or feeling cold)

US Drug Watchdog Earns Maximum Compensation for Metal Hip Implant Recipients After MRI-Detected Implant Failure

MRIs are encouraged to detect premature implant failure, which can place an unfair financial burden on patients

March 27, 2014
 
The US Drug Watchdog is on a mission to make certain none of the half a million US citizens who have a all metal hip implant that has prematurely failed get stuck with the tab for replacement surgery, or other associated medical costs, so they are now urging all recipients to get an MRI test to focus in on tissue inflammation in the area of the all metal hip implant stem, or cup. For more information recipients of an all metal hip implant are urged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
 

So why is the US Drug Watchdog so focused on recipients of a all metal hip implant getting a MRI to test for a premature failure? According to Science Daily on May 15th 2013, "Metal-on-metal hip implants can cause inflammation of the joint lining (synovitis) long before symptoms appear, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to identify this inflammation, according to a new study by researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery. The study, which appears in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, demonstrates that MRI can be used to identify implants that are going to fail before people become symptomatic." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Encourages MRI Scans for DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Failure Detection
The now discontinued all-metal hip implant can cause tissue inflammation on joint linings and subsequent hip failure; US Drug Watchdog's toll-free line provides recipient assistance


March 25, 2014

The US Drug Watchdog says, "A study published in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery found that Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can help identify whether an implant will need to be replaced based on the amount of tissue damage. MRIs are used to get a closer, in-depth look of tissue in the body. MRIs are painless and provide a much more detailed look at soft body tissue. The inflammation on the joint linings caused by metal-on-metal hip implants can be seen in MRIs, which can tell doctors whether or not a hip implant is going to fail." For more information recipients of a metal on metal hip implant are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://U
According to court records, metal-on-metal hip implants like the DePuy Pinnacle implant can cause small particles of cobalt and chromium, types of metal, to be released in the body. These metal particles cause inflammation in the tissue and can lead to hip implant failure. In the study, researchers were able to identify this inflammation in 68% of patients who experienced no symptoms at all and 75% in patients who reported pain.

A study related to all metal hip implants reported in Science Daily in May of 2013 indicated a MRI scan is important for those who have had all metal hip implants even if they are not experiencing pain or other problematic symptoms. The MRI detects tissue damage, which frequently occurs before symptoms present themselves. Most patients wait until pain is severe or until symptoms are uncomfortable to visit their doctors. They end up needing a revision and may have a more complicated revision as a result of the tissue damage that has already occurred.

A spokesperson from the US Drug Watchdog says, "It's very important for anyone who has received a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant to contact us immediately at 866-714-6466 for more information. Waiting until it's too late can mean a more painful hip revision if one is needed, and it could delay or even eliminate the amount of compensation hip implant patients are entitled to."

US Drug Watchdog Urges Recipients Of All-Metal Hip Implants To Receive an MRI To Determine If Implant Has Prematurely Failed


March 24, 2014


The US Drug Watchdog is urging recipients of an all metal hip implant to get a MRI examination to see if there are indication's this type of artificial hip has begun to fail, because the time to get compensated for a premature failure could come, and go for most recipients, and in the end the group fears most recipients will not get compensated. For more information recipients of an all metal hip implant are encouraged to contact to US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466.http://USDrugWatchdog.Com


The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to a March 2014 in the publication called Regulatory Focus, Metal-on-metal hip implants have been plagued with controversy around the globe. The devices, which claimed to be similar enough to predicate devices made with non-metal parts, have since been associated with high revision rates and the generation of metal (often chromium) shavings that have damaged the tissue of some patients. Most manufacturers have recalled the products from the market in the US, while influential researchers have called for the devices to be banned." For more information recipients of an all metal hip implant are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "There are 500,000 US citizens who have an all metal hip implant. According to Science Daily on May 15th 2013, "Metal-on-metal hip implants can cause inflammation of the joint lining (synovitis) long before symptoms appear, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to identify this inflammation."

The US Drug Watchdog believes most recipients of an all metal hip implant are unaware of some of the problems associated with all metal hip implants, and they fear many recipients will not complain about a defective all metal hip implant because they do not want to go through a surgery designed to replace a defective hip implant. This type of surgery is also called revision surgery. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The MRI procedure focused on tissue damage may be a huge breakthrough for recipients, and we are strongly encouraging all US recipients of an all-metal hip implant to schedule an MRI test if for no other reason than the peace of mind in knowing whether or not the implant has failed."

US Drug Watchdog Says A Settlement Has Been Reached In Behalf Of DePuy's Recalled ASR Hip Implants And It Is Vital Recipients Not Yet Represented By Lawyers To Call Them

November 14, 2013

The US Drug Watchdog has been urging recipients of the recalled Depuy ASR all metal hip implant to call them about suggested law firms so they could be included in a possible settlement for three years. A settlement has just been announced, and it is absolutely vital all recipients of the DePuy ASR all metal hip implant call them at 866-714-6466, if they have not already been identified by the federal court handling this litigation.
The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to court records 30,000 US citizens are recipients of the DePuy ASR all metal hip implant. The glaring problem we see with the news story is only 7500 individuals have been identified by the court. That means there are 22,500 people who have not been identified, and will not be participating in the settlement. The Bloomberg news article about this settlement dated November 12th 2013 indicated settlement amounts would be in the range of $300,000 per recipient. If you are a recipient of a DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, and you are not yet represented by an attorney, and or you have not yet been identified by the federal court in Ohio handling this litigation please call us immediately. Our hope is to get all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR all metal hip implant identified, and compensated. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

According to Bloomberg Business week on November 12th 2013, "Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) will pay more than $4 billion to resolve thousands of lawsuits over its recalled hip implants in the largest settlement of U.S. legal claims for a medical device.The accord will resolve more than 7,500 lawsuits in federal and state courts against J&J's DePuy unit. The company recalled 93,000 ASR hip implants worldwide in August 2010, saying 12 percent failed within five years. Internal J&J documents show 37 percent of ASR hips failed after 4.6 years. Last year, the failure rate in Australia climbed to 44 percent within seven years."

US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All Zimmer, Stryker, Biomet, Wright and DePuy Metal Hip Implant Recipients to Get Blood Tests

The US Drug Watchdog is now strongly encouraging all DePuy Pinnacle, or ASR, Stryker Rejuvenate, Wright Medical, the Biomet M2a Magnum, and Zimmer Durom Cup, metal on metal hip implant recipients to get a blood test to see if their cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated. All US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information.

(PRWEB) December 26, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is now including the Stryker Rejuvenate, the Biomet M2a Magnum, Zimmer Durom Cup, and Wright Medical metal on metal hip implant devices to their ongoing initiatives involving the DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implants. The US Drug Watchdog's goal is to identify as many metal on metal hip implant failure victims as possible, and they firmly believe a simple blood test that measures cobalt, and chromium levels is the best way to see if a all metal hip implant has failed. As a background, according to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more. There are 500,000 recipients of a all metal hip in the United States." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, and the group will provide a metal on metal hip implant recipient with the names, and contacts of who they consider to be the best national caliber attorneys to help them with their specific type of device. Recipients of any of the listed metal on metal hip implant devices are urged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant, loss of mobility, and elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood stream of the recipient. We think a blood test focused on cobalt, and or chromium levels is the best way a metal on metal hip implant recipient can discover if their all metal hip implant device has failed." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Metal on metal hip implant devices that are now subject to national litigation over failure issues:

  • DePuy Pinnacle Case Number U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas MDL#2244
  • DePuy ASR Case Number Ohio Southern Federal District Court Case Number MDL # 2197
  • Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Stem Failure Teleseminar: Metallosis with No Metal on Metal Articulation will address the issues surrounding the latest hip replacement systems recall. On July 6, 2012 Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems in the United States
  • Biomet M2a Magnum Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. (Case No. 3:12-cv-3476) filed on July 2nd 2012
  • Zimmer Durom Cup Product Liability mass tort litigation, MDL NO. 2158 (SDW), which is pending in the federal District Court in New Jersey (time frame 2006-July 2008)
  • Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation ("MDL No. 2329"). This is now pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, or are concerned about a premature failure please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant failure victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for what they have gone through, and what they will have to go through should they need a revision surgery to replace a defective metal on metal hip implant." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

US Drug Watchdog Now Expands Their Transvaginal Mesh Initiative for All US Victims and They Are Offering the Names of the Best Possible Attorneys-Who Are also Women

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are calling transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failures a catastrophe for potentially thousands of US women, with damages that are literally beyond comprehension. According to the New York Times, in 2010, about 185,000 women underwent procedures in which mesh was implanted vaginally to treat urinary incontinence. That is 2010 alone." A transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure occurs when the mesh fails to bind to a woman's pelvic tissues. As a consequence of this, the body rejects the mesh that has been sewn into it. As a result, the transvaginal mesh product may start to poke its way through the vaginal wall and protrude out of the vaginal tissue. This complication is more commonly referred to as "erosion." The US Drug Watchdog has expanded their very aggressive initiative designed to assist all victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure-because they are hearing from so many victims. The group is urging any woman, who has had the transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe medical complications to call them anytime at 866-714-6466. As part of their initiative the US Drug Watchdog is offering to send all US women, who are victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure to national caliber attorneys-who are all women. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog has expanded their national initiative designed to help victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure, who are now severely damaged by this type of medical product-because they see a great need for their unique service. Supposedly transvaginal mesh products were designed for women, who were suffering from pelvic organ prolapse, and or stress urinary incontinence. According to the US FDA the procedure to install a transvaginal was supposed to be minimally-invasive. The US Drug Watchdog now says, "The FDA is now saying transvaginal mesh failures is causing complications in patients such as erosion and infection. Women who experience transvaginal mesh failure may need to have numerous corrective surgeries, IV therapy, blood transfusions and drainage of hematomas or abscesses." The US Drug Watchdog is offering to help all US women, who are now victim's of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure get to the best possible attorneys, and the group is promising-the attorneys will all be women. No other Group is offering a service like this.

  • Mesh erosion through the vagina (the mesh is actually protruding out of the vaginal wall)
  • Vaginal Bleeding
  • Vaginal Infection
  • Urinary problems (Non stop urinary tract infections-UTI's)
  • Organ perforation

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure.

US Drug Watchdog Now Encourages All DePuy ASR & DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them For The Names Of The Best Possible Attorneys - Get Compensated

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have a gigantic problem with the recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, and or the recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant--not enough people have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases. Between the recalled DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle there are 180,000+ US recipients. However, only about 6500 individuals have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases. To ensure no DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, or no DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets left on the curb, holding the bag for a problem they did not create, we believe the number of recalled DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients need to go up to over 100,000, and we intend to make sure this happens." The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010 because of a very high failure rate, and the DePuy Pinnacle is now the subject of a national class action because of failures. The US Drug Watchdog is encouraging all recipients of a recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant to call them immediately at 866-714-6466, regardless if the hip implant has failed yet or not. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant. Unfortunately, many individuals who received a now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery; so as a result do not complain." According to court records, "There are about 180,000 recipients of the now recalled DePuy ASR, and or the Depuy Pinnacle hip implant in the United States. The US Drug Watchdog is on a mission to make certain every DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets identified to the best possible attorneys, so they will be compensated in the event their metal-on-metal hip implant has already has failed, or might prematurely fail. For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood.

Only about 1000 people have signed up for a class action because their DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has failed. We think the number of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients should probably be over one hundred thousand, so we are initiating a very aggressive victims initiative, that includes access to national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants, and the DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant." According to the New York Times, "Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip." The US Drug Watchdog is expressing deep concern over European heath agency reports that suggest a 50% failure rate with all metal on metal hip implants. For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

(PRWEB) September 21, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “From our vantage point the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant is the largest single player with over 25% of all US metal on metal hip implant recipients. About 140,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implants were installed on US citizens between 2002, and 2010. With European health agencies suggesting a 50% failure rate with metal on metal hip implants, we believe the current number of DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients needs to grow from the current 1000 identified by the federal court handling this litigation to over 100,000. Again we do not care if the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant has failed yet or not. Because of our very real concern over DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant premature failures we want all US recipients of this hip implant to contact us so we can get them identified to the best possible attorneys, or law firms-now." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, “The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device’s ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients.” The US Drug Watchdog says, “If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Because Of Possible Deadline US Drug Watchdog Calls Its Identification of All ASR DePuy Hip Implant Recipients Its Most important Medical Device Initiative of 2012

 

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our ASR DePuy recalled hip implant initiative is our most important recalled medical device initiative at this moment because we might have a deadline of August 2012 to get all recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients to the federal court in Ohio. At this point we do not care if the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant has failed yet or not, we want to get these hip implant recipients to the best possible attorneys." Most worrisome to the US Drug Watchdog is the fact that the DePuy ASR hip implant was sold as the right hip implant for younger adults who wanted to have an active or athletic lifestyle. The group talks to DePuy ASR recipients almost every day, who are now crippled, or living in enormous pain, and they are offering to help all DePuy ASR recipients get identified to the best possible attorneys.

The US Drug Watchdog is now calling their defective, or failed metal-on-metal hip implant compensation, and representation initiative their largest medical device victims campaign ever, because up to 500,000 US citizens are involved. Five hundred thousand people is enough to fill famed Yankee Stadium ten times over. The goals of this campaign is compensation for what a victim of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure will have to go through, and making certain every victim of a metal-on-metal hip implant has the best possible attorneys. The US Drug Watchdog says, “As of this moment under 5000 US citizens, who have a failed metal on metal hip implant have been identified by federal courts in Ohio, and or Texas handling the DePuy litigation. The Europeans are suggesting failure rates of metal on metal of 50%, and they may soon be requiring blood testing to determine if a metal on metal hip implant has failed. Our goal is to identify at least 250,000 plus US recipients of metal on metal hip implants to the best possible attorneys, because we will not tolerate another backroom deal, nor will we stand by as hundreds of thousands of US citizens get left on the curb holding the bag for a problem that should not be there’s.” US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com.

The US Drug Watchdog is restating their concern about metal on metal hip implant failures, and elevated levels of cobalt, or other metals in the blood streams of recipients of a metal on metal hip implant between 2002, and 2010. The group says, “Where is the US Food and Drug Administration when it comes to the US metal on metal hip implant disaster? What are the side effects of having elevated levels of cobalt in a persons blood stream?” http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, such as swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility or loss of mobility, please have them call us at 866-714-6466 immediately. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com
 

 

 

The US Drug Watchdog Now Urges Plaintiffs Law Firms Worldwide To Contact Them About A Possible International Effort To Help Victims Of Defective Drugs Or Medical Devices

The US Drug Watchdog is going international, and is urging plaintiffs law firms of the highest possible caliber to contact them, if their country has meaningful consumer protection laws when it comes to recalled, or defective pharmaceutical products, or medical device type products. The US Drug Watchdog is not just the best branded Drug Watchdog Advocate in the United States. The group is also the best branded Drug Watchdog Advocate in Canada, the UK, Germany, Brazil, South Africa, Japan, Italy, Spain, and most other countries around the world. The US Drug Watchdog has the same type standing on defective, or recalled medical devices-worldwide. The group says, "We are working on so many initiatives that impact consumers around the world like our DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant initiative, or our Yaz birth control pill initiative, and we know we have hurt, or severely injured victims around the world, and we want to figure out a way to help them. We are encouraging the highest caliber personal injury law firms from any country in the world to contact us, provided their country has laws that protect consumers when it comes to defective pharmaceutical products, or medical devices."

The US Drug Watchdog knows the impact of defective pharmaceutical products, or medical devices is not just limited to the United States. Defective pharmaceutical products, and or defective medical devices are a global problem, that affect millions of people around the world. The US Drug Watchdog is attempting to build an international team of the highest caliber personal injury law firms with the goal being-more people get help, and compensation. The US Drug Watchdog at this point is not a law firm, it is an advocacy initiative group, and consulting service focused on making things right for victims of defective pharmaceuticals, and medical devices in the United States. However, because defective pharmaceuticals, or medical devices are not just limited to the United States, the group now intends to expand their services to law firms in countries, that have meaningful consumer protection laws for victims of defective pharmaceutical products, and or medical devices. The US Drug Watchdog is urging law firms in any country to contact them if they have an interest in a more global, or regional approach to assisting victims in their country, who have been harmed, or injured by a defective pharmaceutical product, or medical device. For more information interested law firms in any country are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The primary countries of interest to the US Drug Watchdog's International Initiative include Canada, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Mexico. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "In the United States frequently larger defective pharmaceutical, or medical device lawsuits get put into what is called a Multi District Litigation, or MDL. While MDL's might be an efficient way to handle thousands of cases, they frequently fail to identify many of the victims. Aside from our new international initiative, we are trying to figure out a more efficient way to get the word out about a defective pharmaceutical product, or a medical device for US MDL's. In this instance we think the efficient smart way to do this is build a team of actual trial attorneys in each state, that have intake, and case management capabilities, and then develop a public relations plan specific to each state, with the goal being-get the word out to victims in that specific state." The group says, "Most European, Asian, or personal injury attorneys from around the world might be surprised to learn many US victims of a defective pharmaceutical product might not be willing to call a Texas attorney, because they live in New York, or call a California personal injury attorney if they see a cable TV ad about a defective medical device in Ohio. In many ways the US is like 50 different countries-but we are working on it-the goal being more victims get identified, and compensated." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

 

 

 

US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients To Know The Symptoms Of A Failure And Offers To Name The Best Lawyers & Law Firms For Failure Victims

Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, lack of flexibility, and or elevated levels of cobalt in the recipients blood stream. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We urgently need family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2002, and 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. We could easily have over one thousand US citizens, who are recipients of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, who might be living each day in pain.

According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog says, "The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, it has already been well documented that there is a failure rate with the DePuy Pinnacle hip implants that was significant enough to warrant a national lawsuit over this specific hip implant device, and we want to get every DePuy Pinnacle recipient identified.

US Drug Watchdog Launches Now Calls Transvaginal Mesh A Disaster For 100,000's of US Women Recipients And Offers The Names and Contacts Of The Best Women Attorneys

Monday, June 18, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are now calling the transvaginal mesh diaster the absolute worst mess we have ever seen for women, and the damages are literally beyond comprehension. We are also talking about a potentially huge number of US women. According to the New York Times, in 2010, about 185,000 women underwent procedures in which mesh was implanted vaginally to treat urinary incontinence. That is 2010 alone." Transvaginal mesh failure occurs when the mesh fails to bind to a woman's pelvic tissues. As a consequence of this, the body rejects the mesh that has been sewn into it. As a result, the transvaginal mesh may start to poke its way through the vaginal wall and protrude out of the vaginal tissue. This complication is more commonly referred to as "erosion." Erosion may result in extreme pain, infection, bleeding, vaginal discharge, with no possibility for sexual intercourse. The US Drug Watchdog has begun a very aggressive initiative designed to assist women in the United States, in what they are referring to as the Transvaginal Mesh Disaster. The group is urging any woman, who has had the transvaginal mesh surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe complications to call them anytime at 866-714-6466. As part of its initiative the US Drug Watchdog is offering to send all US women, who are victims of this Transvaginal Mesh Disaster to national caliber attorneys-who are all women. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Calls Its 'Osteoporosis Drug Fosamax & Women Who Have Had A Unexplainable Femur Fracture' One Of Its Most Important Initiatives Ever

Monday, June 11, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The osteoporosis drug called Fosamax, and out of the blue femur breaks is one of the most complicated issues we have ever encountered. For one, we are hearing from women, who were using Fosamax for five years or more, their femur broke, and typically they had to have at least one surgery to repair the femur. Often, if not in most cases these surgeries involve using a metal rod to reinforce the femur. Our greatest fear is most women, who have had this happen will never hear about the possible correlation between the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax, and their broken femur. We are urging family members of women, who have suffered a broken femur, to ask if they were also using Fosamax." On February 3rd 2011, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) came out with a Canadian medical study that points to a higher risk of a certain type of thighbone fracture in women who take bisphosphonates such as Fosamax for long periods. The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any woman, who was using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax for five years, or more, and then suffered an unexplained femur break, also known as a thighbone break. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) June 11, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It sounds counterintuitive, that a drug supposedly devised to fight osteoporosis could also be associated with women, who suffered an out of the blue broken femur bone. However, when it comes to the osteoporosis called Fosamax, that is exactly what we are saying. We are also saying we need family members, or loved ones of women, who suffered an out of the blue femur break to ask if the woman was also using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax." The US Drug Watchdog is trying to identify every woman in the United States, who has been using, any type of osteoporosis drug, or the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax for at least five years, and then for some unexplained reason, they suffered a broken femur, thighbone, or what is called a atypical thigh fracture. According to the US FDA, "The femur fracture can happen suddenly and without warning, so this could be a particularly serious Fosamax side effect." The US Drug Watchdog is urging family members of women, who have suffered an out of the blue femur break to ask if they were using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax. The group is urging any potential victim to call them anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to make certain all Fosamax users, or other osteoporosis type drug users, who suffered an unexplained broken femur, or thigh bone get to the best actual trial law firms or attorneys, that have a superior record in achieving significant results for their clients--period."

US Drug Watchdog Now Offers All Recipients Of The Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant The Names Of The Best Attorneys Because Of A Possible Looming Deadline

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is offering to help all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR get identified to the best possible attorneys, even if their metal-on-metal hip implant device has not yet failed. The group has heard of a possible looming deadline of August 2012-to have all recall DePuy ASR hip implant recipients identified. The group is concerned that once a settlement has been reached on the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant litigation, individuals who suffer a failure of the recalled hip implant may be up the creek, if they were not identified prior to the settlement. The US Drug Watchdog says," What has us horrified is only about 3400 individuals so far have been identified by the federal court in Ohio that is handling the litigation, and there are 40,000 DePuy ASR hip implant recipients. We intend to do everything possible to change this dynamic, with the goal being every DePuy ASR recipient gets identified by the court, and we can suggest the best possible attorneys to streamline the process. Before time runs out to get identified, if you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

(PRWEB) June 12, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because of the high failure rate associated with the now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, we think it is absolutely vital to get every DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified to the best possible attorneys, out of fear the device will fail prematurely, and or out of fear a possible deadline of August 2012 to have all recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients identified. Our biggest worry right now is of the 40,000 US citizens, who received a now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, only about 3400 have been identified by the Ohio Federal Court, that is handling the litigation. Our number one priority is making certain every recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipient has been identified by the best possible attorneys, so down the road, their rights are protected, should the hip implant fail prematurely." The US Drug Watchdog is encouraging all DePuy ASR recipients to call them, for an unequaled free service, that is focused on making certain no US consumer, that received a DePuy ASR hip implant, that has now been recalled, gets left holding the bag.

As a background, the New York Times wrote an article about the metal-on-metal hip disaster on December 27th 2011. In the article the Times said,"Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because we fear failures for the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, or the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant that is now the subject of a national class action, we think it is vital to get every DePuy ASR and DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant recipient identified now, and we think it is imperative we get to these hip implant recipients to the best possible national caliber personal injury trial attorneys, in order to ensure these people are compensated for what they have already gone through, or could go through in the future. DePuy ASR or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients can call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is now offering to assist all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, along with DePuy's Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant get to the best possible attorneys because compensation is going to be vital due to a possibility these metal-on-metal hip implants will fail and need to be replaced now, or in the near furure. In August of 2010 the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant was recalled, and there is now a national class action involving the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do." The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are about 40,000 DePuy ASR recipients out there, and only about 3400 have been identified by the federal court handling that case, and of the 130,000+ DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant recipients out there only about 1000 have been identified by the federal court handling that case. Even if the hip implant has not yet failed, we will recommend the best possible law firms, in order to ensure these DePuy hip implant recipients do not get left at the curb holding the bag. If you have a DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant, please call us at 866-714-6466, even if the device has not yet failed." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Says Its Vital All DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients Know The Symptoms Of A Failure And They Offer The Names Of The Best Attorneys If A Failure Occurs

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because a hip implant failure, or hip replacement surgery is such a huge ordeal, we want to hear from every recipient of a metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, out of fear their device has started to fail, or victims may not know the warning signs of a failure. Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility." According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We urgently need family members, or loved ones of a hip implant recipient, that was surgically installed between 2005, and 2010 to ask the family member, or friend, if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. We could easily have tens of thousands of US DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims, living each day in pain, with a failed hip implant. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims identified, to the best possible national caliber attorneys, and we will help with the process." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) April 25, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The symptoms of DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, swelling in the area of the hip implant, lack of flexibility, or loss of mobility. Because DePuy Pinnacle hip implants were surgically installed on well over 100,000 US citizens, and because numerous studies are pointing to increased failure rates with all metal-on-metal hip implants, we are doing every thing possible to get every victim of a metal on metal hip implant failure identified, so we can make sure the get to the best possible attorneys. Because living with a failed hip implant, and or hip implant replacement surgery, also known as revision surgery are such traumatic events, we are very focused on victim compensation, when it comes to any type of metal-on-metal hip implant failure, including the DePuy Pinnacle." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog says, "The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant, and we think it is vital that every DePuy Pinnacle recipient understand the warning signs of a failure. At the same time we want to get every failed metal on metal hip implant victim identified. If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the metal-on-metal hip implant called the DePuy Pinnacle, the now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or any other metal on metal hip implant device that has failed please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Openly Mocks The US FDA For Doing Little To Nothing About The Metal On Metal Hip Implant Disaster & Offers To Help Victims Get To The Best Attorneys

Monday, April 23, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is now openly mocking the US FDA for once again sitting on their hands, while up to half a million US citizens could now be stuck with a metal on metal hip implant device that might prematurely fail, or do even more damage because the metal debris could be giving these type of hip implant recipients blood poisoning. The United Kingdom is already on the verge of an out right ban of all metal on metal hip implants, and the US Drug Watchdog is convinced there are hundreds of thousands of US citizens, who are recipients of a metal-on-metal hip implant that has failed, or will fail prematurely. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure, or if the metal on metal hip implant recipient is concerned about a premature failure, in order to get them to the best attorneys. Metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) April 23, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is openly mocking the US FDA for their do nothing approach to what the group considers to be a looming disaster for hundreds of thousands of US citizens, who are recipients of what is called a metal on metal hip implant device. While there has already been one notable metal on metal hip implant recall, the group is saying, "We are hearing from numerous other metal on metal hip implant recipients, and they do not have a recalled DePuy ASR. So we have completely redesigned our web site in order to ensure all recipients of a failed metal on metal hip implant know that they have not been forgotten, or ignored." The group expects there will be hundreds of thousands US metal-on-metal hip implant failure victims, and the US Drug Watchdog intends to create a seamless pathway where a US metal-on-metal hip implant recipient can get to the best possible personal injury attorneys; with the goal being compensation for what victims are going through, or what they might have to go through, should the hip implant prematurely fail. According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any US hip implant recipient, who received a metal on metal hip implant device after 2004, and whose metal-on-metal hip implant device has either already failed, or the recipient is experiencing symptoms of a hip implant failure that include swelling or pain in the region of the metal-on-metal hip implant and/or loss of mobility. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant or loss of mobility. Once again the US Drug Watchdog says, "Why have the US FDA constantly having to follow behind the Europeans by years, when it comes to medical device failures, like what we expect to see with the metal on metal hip disaster? We do not think most US citizens understand frequently FDA panelists resign from their positions at the US FDA, and go right back to work for a drug maker, or a medical device manufacturer. Are we the only group that has a problem with this?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, such as swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility or loss of mobility, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Now Stresses Urgency In Identifying All Recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle & DePuy ASR Hip Implants And Offers The Contacts For Best Possible Attorneys

Monday, April 16, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We need to identify all US recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant and the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that is now subject to a national class action lawsuit, and do everything possible to get these people to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is going to matter, if one of these devices has a premature failure. These metal-on-metal artificial hips were surgically implanted on over one hundred and fifty thousand US citizens between 2005 and early 2010, and the courts so far have only identified about 4000 individuals? We need to get every recipient of the DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified, and we will offer suggestions to the hip implant recipients as to the highest national caliber law firms, to advance their claim." Symptoms of a recalled DePuy ASR or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip,or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant, that is also subject to national class action please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) April 16, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our DePuy Pinnacle hip implant initiative, and our initiative focused on the recalled DePuy ASR hip implants are our most vital medical device initiatives ever. We want to get every recipient of one of these metal-on-metal hip implant devices identified by the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is going to be vital. Only about 3400 individuals have been identified, out of 40,000 recipients, for the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant device. Because of the high failure rate of the recalled DePuy ASR we need to get at least another 20,000 to 30,000 recipients identified, out of fear their device will prematurely fail in the future. In the instance of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant so far only about 1000 individual recipients have been identified by the federal court in Texas. The DePuy Pinnacle is now subject to a national class action, related to premature failures of this metal-on-metal hip implant device. Over 130,000 US citizens have received the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant. Because the issue of metal-on-metal hip implant failures is so vital we believe at a minimum 70,000 US recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle should be identified by the court, if for no other reason, but as insurance." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip."

US Drug Watchdog Rings Alarm Bells About Getting All Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipients Identified To The Best Possible Attorneys Before Time Runs Out

Friday, March 23, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is warning all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR that it is vital they get identified by the best possible attorneys, even if their metal-on-metal hip implant device has not yet failed. The group is concerned that once a settlement has been reached on the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant litigation, individuals who suffer a failure of the recalled hip implant may be up the creek, if they were not identified prior to the settlement. The US Drug Watchdog says,"The DePuy ASR hip implants are failing, or have failed at an unacceptably high rate. As a result there was a recall on this hip implant device in August of 2010 by the US FDA. DePuy ASR hip implants were surgically implanted on about 40,000 US citizens between 2005 and mid 2010. What terrifies us is only about 3400 individuals have been identified by the federal court in Ohio that is handling the litigation. We intend to do everything possible to change this dynamic with the goal being every DePuy ASR recipient gets identified by the court, and we can suggest attorneys to streamline the process." According to the US FDA, symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The US Drug Watchdog is urging family members of hip implant recipients, who received a hip implant between 2005, and mid 2010, to ask if the hip implant was an ASR Depuy, and if they are having any problems. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

(PRWEB) March 23, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our DePuy ASR recalled hip implant initiative is our most important recalled medical device initiative of ever. Unfortunately, because many individuals who received a ASR DePuy hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, they do not complain. Because of this, we are strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR hip implant." They say, "even more worrisome to us is the fact that the DePuy ASR hip implant was sold as the right hip implant for younger adults who wanted to have an active or athletic lifestyle." The group says, "We could have tens of thousands of DePuy ASR hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some meaningful help, that includes the best possible attorneys. At this point we do not care if the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant has not yet failed. We want to make certain all recipients are identified, in the event of a premature failure down the road." For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier advocate for medical device recipients, and pharmaceutical safety in the United States.

US Drug Watchdog Now Offers to Help All Recipients of the DePuy ASR & DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant to Get to the Best Possible Attorneys Because Compensation is Vital

Monday, March 12, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our current number one priority is to identify every recipient of the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal and/or the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that are both named in national class action lawsuits, because we do not want these hip implant recipients missing out on what could be a huge settlement, and significant compensation. Our biggest fear is that--if the recalled DePuy ASR, or the DePuy Pinnacle recipients miss out on a settlement now, they could be up the creek down the road. For this reason, we are strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We firmly believe we have one hundred fifty thousand plus DePuy Pinnacle or DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US and, because of age or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing.

US Drug Watchdog Urges All Recipients Of A DePuy Pinnacle Or ASR Hip Implant To Get Identified So They Can Get Legal Opinions About Compensation From The Best Attorneys

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "Of the nearly 40,000+ recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, only about 3300 hip implant failure victims have been identified-so far. In this instance we believe the number of individuals identified should be closer to 15,000 DePuy ASR hip implant recipients." The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010. The US Drug Watchdog also says, "With respect to the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant over 100,000 were surgically implanted between 2005 & 2010 in the US, there is already a Federal Multi District Litigation over the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, but our big worry here is only about nine hundred individuals have signed up so far." Both the DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants, have shown a high failure rate. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "There is no data on the number of all-metal hips that have failed prematurely in this country because the outcomes of orthopedic procedures are not formally tracked by the government or private companies. But extrapolating from overseas data and the estimate of metal hip use here, tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations over the next decade to replace the implants." The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "Even if your DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device has not failed-yet, we think it is vital we get you identified to the best possible attorneys, because we do not want metal-on-metal hip implant recipients left holding the bag financially ten years from now." For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) February 28, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Even if your DePuy ASR hip implant has not yet failed, there is a good chance it will, so we believe you should positioned to be compensated in the event it will. With the issue of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant, we intend to grow the number of the Pinnacle hip implant failure victims, or potential victims to at last 30,000. Our Fear is once the lawsuits, or Multi District Litigations (MDL's) are over, DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle victims will have slim to none chances of meaningful recourse against the makers of these metal-on-metal hip implants." According to the US FDA, symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the metal-on-metal hip implant, loss of mobility, swelling in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, " All-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate. A new study found that no new artificial hip or knee introduced during a recent five-year period - implants that included some of the all-metal hips - were more durable than older devices, and 30 percent were worse." The US Drug Watchdog is urging all DePuy ASR, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients to call them immediately so the group can get them identified to the best possible attorneys. DePuy ASR, or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients can call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Says Its Vital We Now Identify All DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients That Have A Hip Implant Failure & Its Critical Family Members Help

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are over 100,000+ US citizens, who received a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and tragically many DePuy Pinnacle hip implants are failing, or have failed. As a result, a multi district litigation has begun, as a way to prosecute these claims. The DePuy Pinnacle hip implant is a metal-on-metal hip implant device. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

(PRWEB) February 22, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We could have tens, and tens of thousands of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help." The US Drug Watchdog is strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip, according to one estimate. A new study found that no new artificial hip or knee introduced during a recent five-year period - implants that included some of the all-metal hips - were more durable than older devices, and 30 percent were worse." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you are a recipient, or a loved one is a recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that has already failed, or showing symptoms of a failure, we want to get you identified, and we want to make certain you get to the best possible national caliber personal injury law firms, to insure you receive the best possible compensation."

US Drug Watchdog Now Needs Family Members to Help Identify Recipients of the Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Even if the Device Has Not Yet Failed

Friday, February 17, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog has just learned that of the approximately 33,000+ recipients of the DePuy ASR hip implant, only about 3300 have signed up for litigation focused on compensating them for a hip implant revision surgery, or the pain, and suffering, should such a surgery be required. Symptoms of a DePuy ASR hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility. The group says, "It has already been very well documented that there is an extremely high failure rate for the ASR DePuy hip implants, and we need to get every victim identified as soon as possible, in order to try to get them some actual help, that could include significant compensation. We also believe that all recipients of the ASR hip implant should be identified by the court, in the event their hip implant fails in the future, and we have national caliber law firms in place to help recipients with this process." The DePuy hip implant device was used between 2005, and mid 2010. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, be please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com.

(PRWEB) February 17, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant from 2005, until the summer of 2010 to ask if it was a ASR DePuy hip implant, out of fear the family member may not want to complain, or they have not heard of the recall." The group says, "At this moment there are only about 3300 DePuy ASR metal-on-metal recalled hip implant recipients signed up for the multi district litigation, and we fear the actual number should be well over 10,000. So we are doing everything possible to get the word out to all DePuy ASR recipients. This hip implant has been recalled, and we want to help you get signed up for the litigation." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do.

The US Drug Watchdog is urging any recipient of a DePuy ASR hip implant to call them immediately at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Important Note: The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have learned the makers of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant have been writing recipients of this hip implant, and offering to pay their co-pays for the replacement of this hip implant-what an insult." They say, "In reality, recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant might be owed hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, and we find this manufacturers letter campaign to be nothing short of reprehensible. Offering to pay a co-pay-when the victim could be handicapped, or crippled for life?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Now Wants To Hear From All US Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Recipients Regardless Of Who Made It Because Of The High Failure Rates

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is now beginning a very aggressive campaign designed to identify every US citizen, who is the recipient of any type of metal on metal hip implant device since 2004. The group says, "There appears to be an abnormally high failure rate for recipients of metal on metal hip implants starting from 2004 to the present. We are zeroing in on all metal-on-metal artificial hip implant manufacturers, and we want to hear from all recipients, who have already had revision surgery to have the failed device removed, or they are suffering from the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure that include swelling, lack of flexibility, pain in the hip region, or difficulty walking." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any metal-on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has already failed, or if the hip implant recipient is suffering the symptoms of a metal-on metal hip implant failure. Victims are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via the web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) February 08, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is in the beginning stages of starting a national initiative focused on identifying all US metal-on-metal hip recipients, who have either had to have their metal-on metal implant replaced, or they are suffering symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure that include swelling, tenderness in the area of the hip implant, lack of flexibility, or lack of mobility. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We expect the metal-on metal hip implant initiative we are now beginning will be the largest defective medical device initiative we will ever be involved in. We expect numbers of victims to be in the 100,000's." According to the New York Times, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States.

A new study found that no new artificial hip or knee introduced during a recent five-year period - implants that included some of the all-metal hips - were more durable than older devices, and 30 percent were worse." The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any US hip implant recipient, who received a metal, or metal hip implant device after 2003, and whose metal-on-metal hip implant device has either already failed, or the recipient is experiencing symptoms of a hip implant failure. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device, or recalled drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one, who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed, or is showing symptoms of a failure, such as swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility, or loss of mobility, please have them call us at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

 

 

 

 

 

US Drug Watchdog Dramatically Intensifies Its Efforts To Insure Diabetics Who Used the Diabetes Drug Called Actos & Then Developed Bladder Cancer Get to the Best Lawyers

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog is warning diabetics, who used the diabetes drug called Actos, and then developed bladder cancer, to call them for the names, and contacts of the best possible national caliber personal injury attorneys to advance their claim. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are tired of personal injury marketing law firms running ads on cable TV, that fail to mention the part about them selling an Actos case, to a real trial law firm, that will then advance the claim, so we are changing the rules. If you are a diabetic, who used the diabetes drug called Actos, and the developed bladder cancer, call us and we will give you the names, and specific contacts for extremely capable national caliber personal injury attorneys, and or law firms, that consistently get the best results-no middlemen." According to the AP, "The US FDA has also issued a warning about Actos, and bladder cancer. Both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011. Actos (pioglitazone), along with another diabetes drug made by Takeda Pharmaceutical, Competact, came under fire in Europe after a study revealed an increased risk for bladder cancer among diabetes patients who were taking the medication." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to identify any user of the diabetes drug called Actos, if they have developed bladder cancer, and we think we will need the help of family members, and loved ones to get these victims identified."

The US Drug Watchdog has now refocused its initiative focused on diabetics, who used the diabetes drug called Actos, and then developed bladder cancer to insure all victims get directly to a national caliber personal injury law firm, that has a proven track record of consistently getting the best results for their clients, as opposed to a personal injury marketing law firm advertising on cable TV. The US Drug Watchdog says, "These diabetes drug cases, involving diabetics, who now have bladder cancer could be worth millions to the victims, and they should be. We do not see the value of a personal injury middleman marketing law firm doing ads on cable TV, and how they actually add value to the victim. An Actos diabetes drug user, who now has bladder cancer is not a commodity." According to the AP, "The FDA has issued a warning that Actos may be linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. Meanwhile, both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011. Actos (pioglitazone), along with another diabetes drug made by Takeda Pharmaceutical, Competact, came under fire in Europe after a study revealed an increased risk for bladder cancer among diabetes patients who were taking the medication." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We now fear bladder cancer, and diabetics using the diabetes drug called Actos is a much bigger problem than we ever dreamed possible, and we want to hear from any user of the diabetes medication called Actos, if they have developed bladder cancer, to insure they get the best possible legal representation. If after using Actos you, or a loved one developed bladder cancer please call our group immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug's use. If you have a friend, or loved one, who was, or is using the diabetes drug called Actos, who has developed bladder cancer, please have them call us at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

 

 

 



 

US Drug Watchdog Now Urges Diabetics Living with Bladder Cancer To Call Them Immediately If They Were Also Using the Diabetes Drug Called Actos

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is hard for us to even comprehend the damages associated with diabetics, who were using the diabetes drug called Actos, and then developed bladder cancer, but we think the compensation owed to these victims is huge. We are urging loved ones, or family members to ask the question-were you using Actos before being diagnosed with bladder cancer? There may be a elevated incidence of bladder cancer for users of the diabetes drug called Actos, and we want to identify every US victim, in the hopes we can get them some meaningful help, and compensation." Actos is a member of a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones, which have been linked to bladder cancer. Actos side effects include increased risk of congestive heart failure, and an increased risk for bladder cancer. According to the AP, "The US FDA has also issued a warning about Actos, and bladder cancer. Both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011.

The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "We completely underestimated the number of diabetics, who were using the diabetes drug called Actos, and then developed bladder cancer. We are now urging family members, or loved ones of diabetics, who have been diagnosed with bladder cancer, to ask if they were using the diabetes drug called Actos. Unfortunately, the use of Actos for diabetes, and an elevated chance of bladder cancer could to be related." According to the AP, "The FDA has issued a warning that Actos may be linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. Meanwhile, both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011.

US Drug Watchdog Calls Its Osteoporosis Drug Fosamax Initiative & Women Who Have Had A Unexplainable Femur Fracture One Of Its Most Important Ever

Thursday, January 19, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It sounds counterintuitive, that a drug supposedly devised to fight osteoporosis could also be associated with women, who suffered an out of the blue broken femur bone. However, when it comes to the osteoporosis called Fosamax, that is exactly what we are saying. We are also saying we need family members, or loved ones of women, who suffered an out of the blue femur break to ask if the woman was also using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax." The US Drug Watchdog is trying to identify every woman in the United States, who has been using, any type of osteoporosis drug, or the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax for at least five years, and then for some unexplained reason, they suffered a broken femur, thighbone, or what is called a atypical thigh fracture. According to the US FDA, "The femur fracture can happen suddenly and without warning, so this could be a particularly serious Fosamax side effect." The US Drug Watchdog is urging family members of women, who have suffered an out of the blue femur break to ask if they were using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax. The group is urging any potential victim to call them anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) January 19, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The osteoporosis drug called Fosamax, and out of the blue femur breaks is one of the most complicated issues we have ever encountered. For one, we are hearing from women, who were using Fosamax for five years or more, their femur broke, and typically they had to have at least one surgery to repair the femur. Often, if not in most cases these surgeries involve using a metal rod to reinforce the femur. Our greatest fear is most women, who have had this happen will never hear about the possible correlation between the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax, and their broken femur. We are urging family members of women, who have suffered a broken femur, to ask if they were also using Fosamax. One of the biggest problems, and challenges we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug's use." According to the FDA, "Typically these fractures occurred after using any type of osteoporosis drug, or Fosamax for five years, or more." On February 3rd 2011, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) came out with a Canadian medical study that points to a higher risk of a certain type of thighbone fracture in women who take bisphosphonates such as Fosamax for long periods. The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any woman, who was using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax for five years, or more, and then suffered an unexplained femur break, also known as a thighbone break. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to make certain all Fosamax users, or other osteoporosis type drug users, who suffered an unexplained broken femur, or thigh bone get to the best actual trial law firms or attorneys, that have a superior record in achieving significant results for their clients--period."

US Drug Watchdog Now Shifts Their Focus To Compensation & The Best Attorneys For Diabetics Who Used The Diabetes Drug Called Actos & Developed Bladder Cancer

Friday, January 20, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are dramatically shifting our focus from a national campaign designed to identify diabetics, who used the diabetes drug called Actos, and then developed bladder cancer. We are now very focused on making certain Actos users, who developed bladder cancer have the very best trial attorneys, in order to make certain they get the best compensation. The victims, who developed bladder cancer have incredibly horrible stories, many lives have been ruined, and we fear many lives have been lost." There appears to be a correlation between US diabetics, bladder cancer, and the drug called Actos, and we want to identify every possible victim, in the hopes we can get them some meaningful help with respect to compensation, and helping the victim identify the most qualified national caliber lawyer to pursue the matter." Actos is a member of a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones, which have been linked to bladder cancer. Actos side effects include increased risk of congestive heart failure, and an increased risk for bladder cancer. According to the AP, "The US FDA has also issued a warning about Actos, and bladder cancer. Both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011.

US Drug Watchdog Says It's Vital We Identify All ASR DePuy Hip Implant Recipients & Its Critical Family Members Help Because Many DePuy ASR Recipients Won't Complain

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are over 30,000 US citizens, who received a ASR DePuy hip implant, and tragically ASR DePuy hip implants are failing, or have failed at an unacceptably high rate. As a result there was a recall on this hip implant device in August of 2010 by the US FDA. DePuy ASR hip implants were surgically implanted on tens of thousands of US citizens between 2005 and early 2010." According to the US FDA, symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The US Drug Watchdog says, "Many US citizens, who received an ASR DePuy hip implant have been sent a letter by the device maker offering to pay their insurance co-pay? We say, if you received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, you are probably owed much more than a insurance co-pay, and we will try to help you find the best possible law firm to help you." The group is urging family members of hip implant recipients, who received a hip implant between 2005, and mid 2010, to ask if the hip implant was an ASR Depuy, and if they are having any problems.

In the instance of Fosamax, we are talking about women, whose leg simply broke; they did not fall, they did not run into something, their femur, or upper thighbone simply broke.

The group says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug's use.

The US Drug Watchdog Initiates A National Investigation Of The Diabetes Drug Called Actos & Wants To Hear From Any User If They Developed Bladder Cancer

Monday, November 21, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any user of the diabetes drug called Actos, who developed bladder cancer. According to the AP, "The FDA has issued a warning that Actos may be linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. Meanwhile, both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011. Actos (pioglitazone), along with another diabetes drug made by Takeda Pharmaceutical, Competact, came under fire in Europe after a study revealed an increased risk for bladder cancer among diabetes patients who were taking the medication." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to hear from any user of the diabetes medication called Actos, if they have developed bladder cancer. If after using Actos you developed bladder cancer please call our group immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) November 21, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Actos is a member of a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones, which have been linked to bladder cancer. Actos side effects include increased risk of congestive heart failure, and an increased risk for bladder cancer." In August 2011, the first lawsuits were filed against Actos manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceuticals blaming the diabetes drug for instances of bladder cancer. Victims are suing for financial compensation for the cost of hospital bills and loss of income, as well as physical and emotional suffering. Legal experts predict that these are the first of many Actos lawsuits that will be filed.The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to identify any user of the diabetes drug called Actos, if they have developed bladder cancer." For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says,"One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug's use. If you have a friend, or loved one, who was, or is using the diabetes drug called Actos, who then developed bladder cancer, please have them call us at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

US Drug Watchdog Urges National Awareness of the FDA Recalled Colorado Cantaloupe Because of the Listeria Outbreak & Encourages Diagnosed Victims to Call Them

Sunday, October 2, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog is urging consumers in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming, to be on the lookout for severe flu like symptoms, if they ate cantaloupe purchased prior to September 14th 2011. States where the contaminated Colorado cantaloupes have cause fatalities include New Mexico, Colorado and Texas, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. The US Drug Watchdog says, "The cause for our serious warning is the type of bacteria found in the recalled cantaloupe called Listeria. Listeria can grow even at low temperatures and can also can take three weeks or longer to make a person sick, so more cases will emerge in the coming weeks, or months. Currently 15 U.S. citizens have died from the recalled Colorado Cantaloupe, and we expect this number to grow. We are especially concerned about the elderly, pregnant women, and young children." The group says, "If you live in one of these states, and you, or family members ate cantaloupe in July, August, or September, and then became ill with flu like symptoms, or were hospitalized, we want to know about it." For more information consumer can contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) October 02, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier advocate for consumers dealing with recalled drugs, or medical devices, and they are making a concerted effort to get the word out about the recalled Colorado cantaloupes to all residents, in at least 24 U.S. States. The recalled Colorado cantaloupe may contain a bacteria called Listeria. The illness associated with Listeria, is known as Listeriosis. Listeriosis is a rare and serious illness that mostly affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns and those with compromised immune systems. A person who comes down with it usually experiences fever, muscle aches, diarrhea and confusion. The infection almost always spreads to the gastrointestinal tract, and it can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women, according to health officials. The US Drug Watchdog is urging all news media outlets in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming to tell their listeners, or remind their readers to be on the lookout for flu like symptoms, if they have eaten cantaloupe within the last 60 days or more. The group says, "Listeria has a relatively long shelf live, we are certain U.S. citizens were dying long before the US Food and Drug Administration became aware of the problem, and we need consumers, and healthcare professionals to be on alert. This is a huge mess, and we are long way from being out of the woods at this point." For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "If a family member, especially a senior citizen, or child died in August, or September from flu like symptoms, or a pregnant woman miscarried, and cantaloupe was a common denominator in the live style of these individuals, especially in the states we have listed, we want to know about it. Again, we need the news media in at least the states we have mentioned to remind their viewers, and readers about the Colorado cantaloupe recall, and the fact the severe risks are still out there, and will be for at least another two months." For more information potential victims, or family members of potential victims are welcome to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog Says It's Vital We Identify All Mothers Whose Baby Has A Serious Birth Defect If They Were Using Prozac or Zoloft While Pregnant

Monday, August 1, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog says,"Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, better known as SSRI's, are used as an antidepressant. SSRI Antidepressants have a known link to birth defects when taken while pregnant. Some of the more popular brands of Zoloft and Prozac are included." The group fears potentially thousands of US newborns, or infants could be effected. According to the US FDA, "Taking the anti depresants Prozac, or Zoloft while pregnant can increase the risk of the baby having severe birth defects." The US Drug Watchdog Says, "These birth defects include, Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (or PPHN). PPHN restricts bloodflow and reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood, and Craniosynostosis - premature closing of sutures between the skull bones in infants, restricting brain growth and development. These birth defects are unbelievably horrible, and we want to identify every victim of these specific birth defects." For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) August 01, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog says, "While new drugs are introduced to improve our lives, you must be informed of possible risks. Unfortunately if you took Prozac or Zoloft while pregnant you may have not been warned of the risk of birth defects. We need to get the word out to all US mothers, who were using Prozac, or Zoloft while they were pregnant, especially if their baby had a severe birth defect." The US Drug Watchdog specifically indicates the following birth defects may apply to babies, whose mothers were using Prozac, or Zoloft while pregnant.

  • Rapid Breathing
  • Rapid Heart Rate
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Bluish Skin
  • Heart Murmurs
  • Low Blood Oxygen Levels

The US Drug Watchdog Says, "Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn, also known as PPHN can be generalized as the baby's respiration system not adjusting to life outside the womb. As such, PPHN is generally noticed by doctors shortly after birth, but 10-20 percent of babies diagnosed with PPHN die despite treatment. If you took Zoloft or Prozac while pregnant and your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms, they may have PPHN, and we want to hear from you.

(PRWEB) June 13, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private advocacy group in the United States for victims of dangerous pharmaceuticals, or medical devices. The group has launched a robust initiative aimed at discovering women who have suffered severe medical side effects while taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella birth control pills. As a background, in September of 2009, the US FDA released a warning letter sent to Bayer Pharmaceuticals over Yaz & Yasmin. The letter indicates that the drug maker hid out-of-specification test results for key ingredients in the birth control pills, and said that several batches of the drugs should have never been released to the public. According to the US Drug Watchdog, "The FDA has also blasted the drug maker for failing to highlight the risk factors associated with these birth control pills. These risk factors, or severe side effects include heart attacks, strokes, blood clotting, gallbladder issues, and other serious medical issues." If a user of the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella has had a Pulmonary embolism, a heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, or other serious medical issues, they should contact the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

  • Yaz / Yasmin Pulmonary Embolism
  • Yaz / Yasmin Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Yaz / Yasmin Gallbladder Problems (i.e. gallbladder disease or removal)
  • Sudden Death from Yaz or Yasmin

The US Drug Watchdog is saying,”We want to talk with users of the birth control pills called Yaz, Yasmin, or the generic version Ocella, if they have had any type of severe medical side effects, or, who have suddenly developed an unexplained severe medical condition. We want to get the word out to all women about these drugs, because of the potential for heart attacks, strokes, and or other serious medical issues, and time really is of the essence. All women include the mother of any potential victim.” The group will find the absolute best lawyers to help Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella victims in the United States prosecute their claims against this drug maker.

US Drug Watchdog Says It's Vital All ASR DePuy Hip Implant Recipients Understand The Most Common Signs of a Hip Implant Failure

Mon Jun 13, 9:00 am ET

The US Drug Watchdog says, "ASR DePuy hip implants are failing, or have failed at an unacceptably high rate. As a result there was a recall on this hip implant device in August of 2010. The ASR DePuy hip implants were surgically implanted on tens of thousands of US citizens between 2005 and early 2010." Symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The group says, "Many US citizens who received an ASR DePuy hip implant have been sent a letter by the device maker offering to pay their insurance co-pay? We say, if you received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, you are probably owed much more than a insurance co-pay, and we will try to help you find the best possible law firm to help you." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) June 13, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because many individuals who received a ASR DePuy hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, they do not complain. Because of this, we are strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a ASR DePuy hip implant." They say, "even more worrisome to us is the fact that the ASR DePuy hip implant was sold as the right hip implant for younger adults who wanted to have an active or athletic lifestyle." The group says, "We could have tens of thousands of ASR DePuy hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help." For more information about the DePuy hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com.

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "Tragically the Internet is loaded with misleading ads about ASR DePuy hip implant compensation, lawsuits, or class actions; unfortunately most of the attorneys or law firms advertising for help with the ASR DePuy hip implant failures are middlemen marketing law firms--not the actual trial law firms that will prosecute these cases." They say, "We want to make certain all ASR DePuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients--period--no middleman marketing law firms, or attorneys."

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cited Bayer in 2009 for running misleading television commercials, and for not following proper quality-control procedures at a plant that makes hormone ingredients. According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Our initiative effects millions of US women, and we want to hear from any Yaz, or Yasmin user, or loved ones, if the user had a heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, or any other serious medical issue."

The FDA released a warning letter sent in mid September 2009 to Bayer Pharmaceuticals over Yaz & Yasmin. The letter indicates that the drug maker hid out-of-specification test results for key ingredients in the birth control pills, and said that several batches of the drugs should have never been released to the public. According to the US Drug Watchdog, "The FDA has also blasted the drug maker for failing to highlight the risk factors associated with the drug. These include heart attacks, strokes, blood clotting, gallbladder issues, and other serious medical side effects." If a user of the birth control pills called Yaz, or Yasmin has had gallbladder problems, a Pulmonary embolism, a heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, or other serious medical issues, they should contact the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

What is the difference between Yaz & Yasmin?

According to the US Drug Watchdog," the only difference between the two pills is that the estradiol in Yaz is lower than in Yasmin. but it is not the estradiol that causes most problems, it is the type of progesterone called drosperinone. The amount of drosperinone is the same in both of the pills."

US Drug Watchdog Urges All ASR DePuy Hip Implant Victims to Get Identified and Lists the Most Common Symptoms of a Hip Implant Failure

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is critical we identify all US recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant. These artificial hips were surgically implanted on tens of thousands of US citizens between 2005 and early 2010. The ASR DePuy hip implant has been recalled because of a much higher than normal failure rate." Symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The group says, "Many US citizens who received an ASR DePuy hip implant were sent a letter by the device maker offering to pay the insurance co-pay. We say, if you received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, you are probably owed much more than a insurance co-pay, and we will try to help you find the best possible law firm to help you." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

(PRWEB) May 10, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our recalled ASR DePuy hip implant victim identification initiative is the most complicated campaign we have ever been involved with. One of our biggest problems is individuals who received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant may not want to complain, because they don't want to go through hip replacement surgery again. Because of this, we are strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a ASR DePuy hip implant." The group says, "We could have tens of thousands of ASR DePuy hip implant victims in the US, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some help." For more information about the DePuy hip implant recall please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

Symptoms of the recalled ASR Depuy hip implant failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "Tragically the Internet is loaded with misleading ads about ASR DePuy hip implant compensation, lawsuits, or class actions; unfortunately most of the attorneys or law firms advertising for help with the ASR DePuy hip implant failures are middlemen marketing law firms--not the actual trial law firms that will prosecute these cases." They say, "We want to make certain all ASR DePuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients--period--no middleman marketing law firms, or attorneys."
