Illinois Pharmaceutical Manufacturer Sued for Injuries to Kentucky Resident
Date:5/14/2008

Injuries Believed to be Caused by Contaminated Blood Thinner

CHICAGO, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The blood thinner Heparin continues to make headlines as more people are found to have suffered serious injuries and/or death after using the contaminated drug -- a group of which appears to include many Kentucky residents. On Friday, May 2, 2008, another lawsuit was filed against Chicago-area pharmaceutical giant, Baxter International Inc. on behalf of Louisville, Kentucky resident, Artemus Banks. The complaint was filed by Nolan Law Group in Federal Court located in Chicago, Illinois. Nolan Law Group has already been responsible for filing several lawsuits on behalf of victims and the families of victims who have suffered a personal injury and/or death caused by the use of this contaminated drug. Due to the enormity and severity of the contamination, Nolan Law Group expects to file many more similar cases.

This most recent lawsuit names Scientific Protein Laboratories L.L.C. (the company which manufactures the active pharmaceutical ingredient API in Heparin) as well as certain corporate officers of Baxter. The lawsuit asserts that Baxter International and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Baxter Healthcare Corporation, manufactured the drug with a contaminated API and that Baxter failed to recall the defective drug in a timely fashion. The suit cites four causes of action against Baxter and Scientific Protein Labs including Products Liability, Negligence, Breach of Warranties and Willful and Wanton Misconduct.

Baxter's Heparin has been implicated in more than 400 life-threatening incidents and may be responsible for as many as 81 deaths. In February 2008, Baxter initiated a voluntary recall of nine lots of Heparin Sodium Injection Multi-Dose Vials. According to Baxter International, they recalled the lots due to a spike in adverse reports associated with the use of Baxter Heparin Sodium Injections.
