LegalView continued to maintain its newsworthy coverage on its Avandia information portal with the recent addition of several new articles detailing the drug's potentially dangerous side effects. The type 2 diabetes drug has been linked to bone fracture, osteoporosis and heart failure among patients.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 27, 2009 -- LegalView.info, the most comprehensive legal site available on the Internet, recently updated its Avandia information portal with new articles providing more detail and insight as to the potential Avandia side effects, which have been shown to range from the onset of osteoporosis to bone fractures among women as well as heart failure risks among all patients. Individuals who have recently consumed the drug and may be at risk for developing one of the drug's side effects should consider speaking with not only their medical professional, but an experienced pharmaceutical attorney as well, who can provide information on a potential Avandia lawsuit.
One of the new articles that can be found on the Avandia information portal details a treatment that can work to relieve one of the Avandia side effects. According to a New England Journal of Medicine article, Avandia patients are at an increased risk of developing heart failure; however, researchers may have discovered a technique in which heart failure victims are revived, and, with little side effects. The technique is that of therapeutic hypothermia and it occurs when a victim is cooled in order to avoid the onset of traumatic brain injury, which is often a side effect of a heart failure incident. Although the treatment offers a potential solution to one of the Avandia risks, it may still be necessary for a patient to receive a free legal consultation from an experienced Avandia lawyer.
In addition to providing continually updated news and information on all things Avandia, LegalView also offers details on a variety of other legal topics including the latest on the Fosamax dangers, the peanut butter recall and the cranial implant kit recall.
Fosamax is an osteoporosis drug from makers Merck and Company. Earlier this month, the drug was deemed dangerous by two separate medical publications for its Fosamax side effects, which include jaw bone die off and the potential onset of esophageal cancer. Patients who currently take the drug for bone density loss or osteoporosis should consider seeking medical attention immediately as it may be necessary to stop consumption of the drug.
LegalView has also been providing up-to-the minute news on the peanut butter recall, which has caused nearly 500 U.S. citizens to contract salmonella, seven of which have become fatal, according to multiple news reports. To learn more about the peanut butter recall, individuals are encouraged to obtain information at http://peanut-butter.legalview.info/.
One of the most potentially serious recalls to occur this year is that of Stryker Corporation's Custom Cranial Implant Kit recalls, which were recalled due to issues surrounding the sterility of the kits. If not surgically removed, a patient faces the potential for developing serious side effects as well as an increased risk of death. Patients who have received one of the 322 recalled cranial implant kits should speak with their surgeon immediately to determine the safest way to have the kits removed. Additionally, because of the severity of the side effects and the costs associated with having the kits recalled, it may be advisable for a patient to discuss the development of a cranial implant lawsuit with their attorney, as monetary compensation could be an outcome of such litigation.
