Randone Trasylol Lawsuit Profiled on CBS' '60 Minutes'
Date:2/19/2008

NEW YORK, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 5, 2007, under increasing government pressure, Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corporation said that it had halted worldwide sales of its drug Trasylol after a Canadian clinical study found the drug could be linked to a higher risk of death than other drugs. The Food and Drug Administration asked the company to stop selling the drug, used to prevent excessive bleeding during heart bypass surgery, pending detailed review of preliminary results from the Canadian study.

Dr. Mangano also told 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley that Bayer, the drug's maker, failed to tell the FDA about negative results of their own Trasylol study and that the company's failure to fully apprise the FDA of their own study's findings placed the drug's success before patient well-being.

The Randone case (Josephine Randone, Executrix Of The Estate Of Joseph Randone, And Josephine Randone, Individually, v. Bayer Corporation, et al.) was filed by Napoli Bern & Associates, LLP, and arises from horrific post- surgical complications suffered by Joseph Randone, a 52-year-old man who suffered kidney failure leading to a chain reaction resulting in his death following routine valve replacement surgery where Trasylol was utilized. Attorney Marc Jay Bern says, "the importance of the Trasylol
