ANDRES F. ALONSO, ESQ., a Partner in the Law Firm of PARKER WAICHMAN ALONSO LLP, Was Appointed Co-Lead Counsel to the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in the Denture Cream Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2051
Date:7/16/2009

GREAT NECK, N.Y., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- In an order filed on July 13, 2009, Judge Cecilia Altonaga, United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida appointed as Lead Counsel to the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in the Denture Cream Products Liability Litigation, Andres F. Alonso Esq., a partner in Parker Waichman Alonso LLP, and Scott Wm. Weinstein Esq., a partner in Morgan & Morgan P.A.

Co-Lead Counsel's responsibility is to represent the interests of all plaintiffs who have alleged injury, or damages, as a result of using one or more of the various denture cream products on the market today. They will coordinate the activities of plaintiffs during pretrial proceedings and control, administer, and supervise the litigation.

This litigation is based on the premise that some denture creams/adhesives -- including Fixodent( )((R)) and PoliGrip( )((R)) -- contain zinc, which in excess, can deplete copper levels in the body and lead to serious neurological problems. A small amount of zinc is necessary for a balanced diet. However, being exposed to an excessive amount of zinc can result in serious negative adverse neurological effects. In August 2008, the peer reviewed journal, "Neurology" reported on four patients suffering from neuropathy and other neurological symptoms typical of zinc poisoning and copper depletion. It was determined that excess use of denture cream could have been responsible for their symptoms.

Andres F. Alonso, a partner in the law firm of Parker Waichman Alonso LLP has consistently obtained large verdicts and multi-million dollar settlements for his clients. Just this week Mr. Alonso received a 60 million dollar verdict in the New York State Supreme Court, Bronx County for his client.
