FDA STATEMENT ABOUT TESTOSTERONE PRODUCTS
On January 31, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a safety announcement warning consumers of the potential risk of testosterone therapy. The FDA announced that they will be conducting further investigation into several testosterone therapy products. Concern arose from two published studies that suggest a higher risk of adverse side effects.
These testosterone therapy products have been marketed to men with no adequate warning labels of medical complications. Our law firm believes that the manufacturers of these products may not have adequately warned doctors or their patients of the increased risk for significant cardiovascular side effects. The manufacturers of these products may be liable for the injuries and any wrongful deaths resulting from the use of testosterone therapy products.

In issuing its order, the panel stated: “All actions involve plaintiffs (or their survivors) who used one or more testosterone replacement therapies and contend that their (or their decedent’s) use of the drugs caused their injuries, which include heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism. All testosterone replacement therapy actions will share factual questions regarding general causation and the background science regarding the role of testosterone in the aging body … as well as involve common regulatory issues in light of the FDA’s announcement and subsequent actions, if any.”
