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

e such devastating injuries, and he was never told that other, safer alternative medications existed and could have been used instead of Trasylol.

Trasylol was approved by the FDA in 1993 and prior to its withdrawal from the market, was used to control bleeding in open-heart surgeries. Trasylol was indicated for prophylactic use to reduce peri-operative blood loss and the need for blood transfusion in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass in the course of open-heart surgical procedures. Trasylol is a broad-spectrum protease inhibitor, which modulates the systemic inflammatory response associated with cardiopulmonary bypass surgery. The effects of Trasylol use in cardiopulmonary bypass surgery involve a reduction in inflammatory response, which translates into a decreased need for blood transfusions.

Trasylol is not the first dangerous and defective medication manufactured and marketed by Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corporation. Bayer also marketed the drug Baycol, a statin drug used to lower cholesterol, which was tied to more than thirty deaths before it was withdrawn from the market, and Factor 9, a blood clotting medication used by millions of hemophiliacs who developed HIV and AIDS from untested Factor 9.
