Unsafe Drugs :: Baycol

BAYCOL - In the late 90s, the pharmaceutical group Bayer A.G. released a new drug called Baycol, also known as cervistatin sodium, which was meant to block the production and build-up of cholesterol in the body, as well as to help prevent cardiovascular disease. However, after 52 deaths were reported amongst users of the drug, and it was discovered that the risk of death associated with Baycol can be up to 80 times higher than some of its direct competitors, Baycol was recalled by the FDA in 2001. As a result of the recall, Bayer A.G. has settled out of court on over 2,500 separate cases totaling well over $1 billion.

The main cause of death in these cases was due to renal failure on account of Rhabdomyolysis, a very serious condition that causes the rapid breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue. In addition to the 52 reported fatalities, 385 nonfatal cases of Rhabdomyolysis were also reported by patients who had used the drug Baycol; this is 5 to 10 times higher than similar cholesterol-blocking drugs on the market at the same time.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a disease or condition that may have been caused by Baycol, please fill out the form below for a free evaluation by an experienced Baycol attorney. A lawyer with the expertise and resources to handle these complex cases is essential, and that is exactly what we help provide.
