Drug Center Adds News on Mirena Lawsuits: Bayer Fighting Move to Federal Court
Date:3/29/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 29, 2013

The IUD safety advocates at DrugRisks.com are announcing updated information on the site for women using the IUD contraceptive Mirena. The maker of Mirena, Bayer, is fighting attempts by patients to move the growing number of legal claims to a special federal court****.

DrugRisks was created to provide those using popular medication devices, such as IUD contraceptives, with the latest safety alerts, recalls, studies and legal news. Visitors can determine if other patients are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

The resource center has added information showing the FDA has received over 47,000 AERS adverse event reports among patients using Mirena IUDs*. Of those, 5079 involved dislocation and 1421 involved device migration, which can damage the uterine wall or nearby organs*. Over 6% of patients required hospitalization or surgery.

DrugRisks recently added a case study by the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology which cautions of risks for women who must undergo surgery to remove an IUD like Mirena after the devices dislodge and perforate into the abdominal cavity**.

Due to the growing number of patients filing a Mirena lawsuit, lawyers recently requested that cases be consolidated to one federal Multi-District Litigation court in Ohio***. The petition estimates that, with more than 2 million users, hundreds of Mirena perforation cases could be filed.

Now, in a hearing held by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation last week, Bayer has opposed consolidating the cases in federal court over concerns that it could increase the number of patents filing claims****.

Anyone who suffered perforation or required surgery while using a Mirena IUD is urged to speak with a lawyer about their legal rights. Due to the specialized nature of federal MDL drug injury cases, DrugRisks only recommends lawyers who are already handling Mirena lawsuits.

Visit http://www.DrugRisks.com today for more information on Mirena IUD research, side effects and litigation news, or to speak with a lawyer.
