60 Minutes to Report on Dangers of Trasylol: Cory Watson Crowder & DeGaris Involved in Litigation Against Pharmaceutical Giant Bayer AG
Date:2/16/2008

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Cory Watson Crowder & DeGaris, P.C. (http://www.cwcd.com), has filed lawsuits against Bayer AG on behalf of plaintiffs throughout the United States, who allegedly suffered permanent kidney damage after being given Trasylol(R) -- a Bayer-manufactured drug used to prevent excessive bleeding during coronary artery bypass graft surgery (also called CABG or more commonly bypass).

Turner, Jr., shareholder at Cory Watson Crowder & DeGaris, the law firm that filed the first two cases in the nation against Bayer regarding Trasylol. Turner said, "That this drug company had information that could have saved lives and did not make that information known is reprehensible and Bayer needs to be held accountable."

According to German scientist, Dr. Juergen Fischer, who was interviewed for the 60 Minutes segment, Bayer AG has known since the 1980s that Trasylol caused severe kidney damage, but undertook no study during the drug's development to look at these side effects.
