Locks Law Firm announces it is handling claims against the manufacturers and distributors of testosterone-based products

February 09, 2014 @ 08:27 PM — by Leon Carpenter

Last week the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it has begun investigating the risk of stroke, heart attack and death in men taking prescription testosterone drugs.

The announcement came on the heels of two recent two studies that suggested an increased risk of heart attacks in men who take testosterone, a hormone produced in the testicles that is responsible for maintaining muscle bulk, bone growth and sexual function, the FDA said. The FDA said it has not concluded that testosterone increases the risk of cardiac events but said it is issuing an alert "while we continue to evaluate the information from these studies and other available data."

Actos trial involves claim that Takeda destroyed files

January 30, 2014 @ 09:47 AM — by Admin

The first Actos trial in the federal MDL (Multi-District Litigation) system began this week in Louisiana. Federal Judge Rebecca Doherty ruled that the leadership demonstrated by Takeda (the maker of Actos) regarding files that were lost, deleted or destroyed was disturbing. The judge therefore ruled that plaintiffs' lawyers could tell jurors about the document destruction. Takeda is the largest drug company in Asia. Actos is a diabetes drug that causes bladder cancer. Sales of Actos peaked in March 2011 at $4.5 billion and accounted for 27% of Takeda's revenue at that point. Since Actos was released in 1999 it has generated over $16 billion in sales.
