New Scientific Studies Show Further Evidence of Avandia Dangers

from the market like the other ill-fated drugs Vioxx and Rezulin.

The Harvard group analyzed clinical care data taken from the electronic medical records of patients at several Boston area hospitals and clinics associated with Harvard Medical School. All 26,375 patients records reviewed included a diagnosis of Diabetes and the use of at least one oral diabetic medication used between years 2000 and 2006. The researchers then reviewed the records for all patients who suffered "Myocardial Infarction" or heart attack. The incidence of heart attack was more than double for Avandia compared to its competitor Actos. The researchers chose Avandia to confirm their methodology because of its known "…relative adverse cardiovascular risk profile…" The GlaxoSmithKline-i3 study analyzed health-insurance data from July of 2000 through March of 2007 for 2 groups of 47,501 subjects each; one group using Avandia and the other Actos.

Almost 13,000 former Avandia users who have suffered heart attacks and other significant injuries have filed claims against GlaxoSmithKline in both Federal and State courts.

"This study adds to the overwhelming evidence that Avandia causes heart attacks in an already vulnerable population and it further confirms the basis of these lawsuits," said Marc Grossman, a New York attorney who represents hundreds of former Avandia users in Federal Court in Philadelphia. "It's very disturbing to see what appears to be a pattern of pharmaceutical corporations placing profits ahead of people. The recent studies raise serious questions about the health risks associated with Avandia, yet GSK continues to shirk its responsibility to the thousands of victims of Avandia whose lives are ruined or lost."
