LegalView Informs Baxter Heparin Patients of New Testing Standards for Blood Thinner Following Deaths From Previous Contamination
Date:3/29/2009

LegalView recently reported on new Baxter Heparin testing standards that are to be implemented this year and will ensure the blood thinner's safety following several deaths after the contaminated drug was used on patients, according to Bloomberg News.The tainted blood thinner was found to have an ingredient that caused the deaths of several and sickened hundreds.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 29, 2009 -- LegalView.info, the most comprehensive legal resource available on the Web, recently informed Baxter Heparin patients of the details of new testing standards that the drug will be required to undergo prior to being administered to patients. The standards are part of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) request following an international investigation that the drug was contaminated and which resulted in the alleged deaths of nearly 90 Baxter Heparin patients. The new Baxter Heparin testing standards will include "new equipment to analyze a broader range of impurities" as well as "three identification tests and screening for organic impurities," according to a Bloomberg News report from February 4. Individuals who have previously been a victim to the tainted Baxter Heparin side effects are advised to discuss the legalities of the situation with an experienced Baxter Heparin attorney who can provide a free legal consultation as to the development of a Baxter Heparin class action lawsuit, which may result in the retrieval of monetary compensation.

Baxter's Heparin is made from bovine intestines and liver cells and is used as an injectable blood thinner to ensure blood clots do not form in patients undergoing surgical procedures such as heart surgery or dialysis. Heparin, also heparin sodium, has been used for decades - since the 1930s - among thousands of patients. However, in 2007, the FDA received reports from more than 350 individuals that the drug was causing severe health problems including allergic reaction side effects such as difficulty breathing, vomiting/nausea, increased sweating and a fatal decrease in blood pressure among patients. It was soon discovered that an outside ingredient known as over-sulfated chondroitin sulfate had been added to several batches of the blood thinner from a Chinese manufacturing plant. The discovery prompted a Baxter Heparin recall and intense investigation. Patients who suffered as part of the contaminated Baxter Heparin should discuss the development of a potential Baxter Heparin lawsuit that may result in a patient receiving monetary means as a form of compensation for damages and side effects that occurred as a result of the drug.

In addition to providing the latest news on the Baxter Heparin testing standards, LegalView also offers an extensive library of legal issues to choose from including the latest on mesothelioma treatments as well as news and information on the peanut butter recall and the Fosamax side effects.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of lung cancer caused by the exposure of asbestos fibers and dust. It is common for individuals working in the construction industry to develop this form of lung cancer, which can be fatal, as asbestos was used in an array of construction materials including insulation for homes, offices, apartment complexes, schools, universities and hospitals. Individuals who suffer from the debilitating condition can visit the newly relaunched mesothelioma information portal at mesothelioma treatments, jury verdicts as well as news and information.

The recent peanut butter recall that has infected more than 575 Americans with salmonella bacteria as well as claimed the lives of eight victims is currently being investigated by U.S. government officials regarding alleged falsification of information given by the Peanut Corp. of America to the FDA during its initial investigation into a Blakely, Georgia manufacturing plant. Those who have been affected by the recall are prompted to report their side effects as well as products consumed to officials immediately. Additionally, consulting with a food safety attorney may assist a victim in overcoming any further dangers associated with the poisonings.

Finally, LegalView reports on the recent Fosamax side effects, which have caused patients to not only consider new medications but to discuss the potential for a Fosamax class action lawsuit as well. In January, two medical journals, The New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Dental Association provided a one-two punch against the drug's manufacturers, Merck and Co., reportedly linking the drug to such side effects as esophageal cancer and jaw bone die-off. Patients of the osteoporosis drug are advised to contact a medical professional to discuss the drug and its alleged dangers.
