Pradaxa Lawyers Investigating Severe Bleeding Claims

(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 27, 2012 ) Tampa, Florida – The Pradaxa lawyers at Morgan and Morgan are investigating potential legal claims on behalf of Pradaxa users who suffered severe bleeding episodes while taking the blood thinning medication. These episodes, which include brain hemorrhages and gastrointestinal bleeds, may have occurred following a minor trauma, such as a fall that resulted in a seemingly mild head injury. If you or a loved one suffered from a bleeding event while taking Pradaxa, you may have legal recourse in light of allegations that the manufacturer of Pradaxa failed to properly warn patients and doctors about the risk of life-threatening bleeding. To learn more about your eligibility for a Pradaxa lawsuit, visit Morgan and Morgan’s website at http://www.forthepeople.com/pradaxa-bleeding-lawsuits--11-4104.html and complete the free case review form.

In December 2011, the FDA announced that it would be looking into post-marketing reports of serious bleeds in Pradaxa users. While all anticoagulant therapies pose a risk of serious and fatal bleeding, the agency is working to determine whether reports of Pradaxa bleeding events are occurring more often than should be expected. According to the FDA, a large clinical trial comparing Pradaxa and older blood thinner warfarin revealed major bleeding events which occurred at similar rates. It has been reported, however, that while the effects of warfarin can be reversed with a dose of Vitamin K, no such antidote exists for Pradaxa.

A handful of Pradaxa lawsuits, one of which alleges that a woman suffered a fatal gastrointestinal bleed due to her use of the blood thinner, have already been filed against the drug’s manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim. As these lawsuits progress, the Pradaxa lawyers at Morgan and Morgan are extending a free consultation to patients who suffered a severe bleed on Pradaxa, as well as loved ones acting on their behalf.

Oregon GMO labeling measure certified for November ballot
24 Jul 2014 at 11:41am
By Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND Ore. (Reuters) - An Oregon citizens' initiative that would require labeling of foods made with genetically modified ingredients has garnered more than enough signatures to gain a spot on the state's November ballot, a state government spokesman said on Thursday. "It cleared easily," said Tony Green, a spokesman for the Oregon Secretary of State's Office. It would not apply to food served in restaurants or to animal feed. Oregon is only one of many states wrestling with the hotly contested issue of GMO labeling.


U.S. House panel votes to authorize lawsuit against Obama
24 Jul 2014 at 11:30am

By Annika McGinnis WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday took another step toward authorizing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama, claiming he has overstepped his executive powers. In a partisan vote of 7-4, the House Rules Committee approved the legislation, likely setting it up for consideration by the full House next week. The Republican initiative already has spawned a bitter debate with Democrats less than four months before elections that will determine the political control of Congress next year. House Speaker John Boehner wrote in June that Obama's use of executive orders, including raising the minimum wage for federal contractors and stopping deportations of undocumented youths brought to the United States by their parents, risked giving him a "king-like authority." But Boehner has tamped down calls from some fellow Republicans who have called for impeachment proceedings against Obama, which would be a first step toward removing him from office.



CDC resumes tuberculosis lab transfers halted after anthrax mishap
24 Jul 2014 at 11:24am

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday lifted a moratorium on transfers of inactivated materials from its clinical tuberculosis laboratory, after a bioterror lab mishap last month potentially exposed workers to live anthrax, prompting the halt of transfers from other high-containment labs. The tuberculosis lab, which last year processed more than 500 specimens from around the United States, is the first of the CDC's high-containment labs to be cleared to resume transfers of biological materials. Its other such labs remain on hold, the CDC said. The CDC also announced on Thursday the members of a new panel of independent experts who will advise CDC's director, Dr. Thomas Frieden, on safety issues and corrective actions for the agency's labs.

Child siblings may influence each other?s obesity risk
24 Jul 2014 at 10:42am
By Shereen Lehman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Brothers or sisters might have a greater influence than parents on a child?s likelihood of being obese, suggests new U.S. research. The study, based on data from the larger national Family Health Habits Survey, found that kids with obese parents were about twice as likely to be obese themselves, but having an obese sibling raised a child?s risk of obesity five-fold or more in some cases. ?When you look at a two-child family, a child's obesity status was more strongly related with their sibling than with their parent,? said Mark Pachucki, a researcher with the Mongan Institute for Health Policy at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, who led the analysis. Past research has shown that parents? obesity, health habits and the environment they create in the household can all influence whether their kids will be obese, Pachuki and his colleagues note in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

24 Jul 2014 at 10:30am

By Chijioke Ohuocha LAGOS (Reuters) - A Liberian man in his 40s is being tested for the deadly Ebola virus in Nigeria's commercial capital of Lagos, a mega-city of 21 million people, the Lagos State Health Ministry said on Thursday. Ebola has killed 660 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak in February, straining their flimsy healthcare systems despite international help. A spokesman for the World Health Organisation (WHO) in Geneva confirmed Nigeria had "one suspect case" and said samples had been sent to a WHO lab for testing. "The Nigerian Ministry of Health has implemented control measures in the meantime," he told Reuters.



Exclusive: Allegations of GSK corruption spread to Syria
24 Jul 2014 at 10:26am

By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - GlaxoSmithKline faces new allegations of corruption, this time in Syria, where the drugmaker and its distributor have been accused of paying bribes to secure business, according to a whistleblower's email reviewed by Reuters. The allegations relate to its former consumer healthcare operations in Syria, which were closed down in 2012 due to the worsening civil war in the country. GSK has been rocked by corruption allegations since last July, when Chinese authorities accused it of funneling up to 3 billion yuan ($480 million) to doctors and officials to encourage them to use its medicines. Syria is the sixth country to be added to the list.
