DrugRisks Center NuvaRing Lawsuit News: Drug Maker May Have Concealed Risks
Date:4/2/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2013

DrugRisks was created to improve the safety of those using popular prescription devices like NuvaRing by providing the latest warnings, recalls, studies and legal news. Visitors can determine if others are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

In more than 30% of cases, patients required hospitalization, while 3% ended in death**.

Around 1,097 patients have filed a NuvaRing lawsuit so far alleging blood clots, with the cases consolidated to a special federal court in Missouri. The formal case is known as In re: NuvaRing Products Liability Litigation, No. 08-md-1964, JPML, Eastern District Missouri.
