As Testosterone Lawsuits Mount, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes New Study Questioning Effectiveness of Low Testosterone Therapy in Diabetics


New York, New York (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

As testosterone treatment lawsuits (http://www.injurybeacon.com/testosterone-androgel/lawsuit/) continue to mount in U.S. courts, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that a new study is questioning the effectiveness of these medications in men with Type 2 diabetes. The research, which was published online by The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism on June 30th, involved 88 men who suffered from Type 2 diabetes, all of whom had mild to moderate aging male symptoms and erectile dysfunction. Roughly half of the study subjects were treated with a testosterone injection for 40 weeks, while the remainder received a placebo. Self-administered questionnaires were used at 0, 18 and 40 weeks to measure general health and sexual symptoms.*

During the study, no substantial improvements were seen in the men undergoing low testosterone treatment compared to those who received a placebo. The authors of the article concluded that their findings do not support the use of testosterone therapy to improve general health or sexual symptoms in men who suffer from Type 2 diabetes.

Dozens of testosterone lawsuits currently pending in courts around the country allege that the serious cardiovascular risks associated with low testosterone therapy do not outweigh their benefits. This study would seem to substantiate those claims for this particular patient population, says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is now evaluating testosterone lawsuits on behalf of men who were allegedly suffered heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and other serious cardiovascular problems due to their use of low testosterone therapies.

Testosterone Lawsuits

The safety and effectiveness of testosterone replacement therapy has been under scrutiny since this past January, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced it was investigating the cardiovascular side effects associates with this class of medications. The review was prompted by two studies which indicated that older men, as well as those with pre-existing heart disease, were more likely to suffer heart attacks, strokes or death if they were using testosterone medications.

According to a notice posted on the FDAs website, the agency will convene a joint meeting of the Reproductive and Urologic Drugs Advisory Committee and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee on September 17, 2014, at which time the members will be asked to make recommendations pertaining to the cardiovascular side effects associated with the medications. The Committees will also address what factors should be considered when deciding whether men need to use low testosterone therapy.*

Since the FDA announced its testosterone safety review, court documents indicate that more than 150 testosterone treatment lawsuits have been filed in U.S. courts. The majority of these claims are pending in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, where all federally-filed testosterone lawsuits have been consolidated for coordinated pretrial proceedings. Among other things, plaintiffs in these cases allege that the manufacturers of low testosterone therapies failed to provide doctors and patients with adequate warnings regarding their serious cardiovascular side effects. (In re: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Product Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2545)

Men who allegedly suffered heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or other serious cardiovascular problems due to low testosterone therapy may be entitled to file their own testosterone lawsuit.
