Drug Risk Harms 10,000+ Floridians
Date:3/4/2008

FORT MYERS, Fla., March 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Viles & Beckman, LLC revealed today the death and injury toll now likely exceeds 10,000 Floridians killed or crippled by side effects, such as renal failure, heart attack or stroke, from a drug commonly injected into patients while undergoing open heart surgery -- Trasylol -- a drug most victims did not even know they received. Trasylol was recalled from the US market in November 2007 because its manufacturer, the German multi-national, Bayer, concealed hidden side effects it knew made the drug unsafe for use in humans, including the deaths of about 1,000 patients per month.

Tragically, patients now on dialysis following heart surgery, or spouses who have lost a loved one to a stroke, heart attack or renal failure, following heart surgery, probably don't have any idea they were exposed to this dangerous drug. "They don't even know what hit them," says Michael Beckman, a law partner at Viles & Beckman, LLC, "that's the saddest thing is they don't know why their kidneys failed after that heart surgery." Trasylol was used in two thirds of all open heart surgeries, even though cheaper and more effective alternatives were available. According to Beckman, his firm is setting up a dedicated claims unit to help victims determine whether they were injected with Trasylol during surgery, and to vigorously prosecute claims for the deaths and crippling injuries.

"How many thousands of patients needed to die from strokes or heart attacks, or suffer kidney failure before Bayer finally decided to recall Trasylol?" asks Marcus Viles a partner at Viles & Beckman, LLC. "The patient is supposed to come first, before the product, but here it looks as if Bayer put its own profits ahead of the interests of its patients," said Viles. Viles & Beckman, LLC has a long history of representing innocent, unwarned, unsuspecting victims of corporate misconduct -- "Who are these people, where death and crippling injuries
