Unsafe Drugs :: Ketek

KETEK - In 2007, the FDA confirmed at least 55 cases of liver damage, including at least 5 deaths, as a result of the antibiotic Ketek. Ketek, which is made by Sanofi-Aventis (NYSE: SNY), was prescribed quite frequently to treat chronic bronchitis, forms of pneumonia, and bacterial sinusitis.

The defective drug had a tough time getting approved by the FDA, but it eventually did, which is now the subject of a congressional investigation. It turns out that the clinical trials that were used to get the drug approved were fraudulent.

The first public health advisory of the dangers of Ketek was issued by the FDA in January 2006. Sanofi-Aventis was aware of the serious side effects that Ketek caused, but it wasn't until 2007 when the FDA forced them to place a black box warning label on their product that they would acknowledge there was something wrong. The fact is that Sanofi-Aventis pushed this defective drug to market with no regard for the serious complications their gross negligence could cause.  We intend to hold them accountable for their reckless behavior.

The serious complications associated with Ketek are liver damage and failure. The damage can be as severe as complete liver failure and death. Symptoms linked to liver damage are jaundice (yellow skin color), frequent bruising, dark urine, fatigue, loss of appetite, and feeling "itchy".

If you or a loved one have been prescribed Ketek and suffered liver damage as a result, please fill out the form below for a free evaluation. You or your loved one may be entitled to compensation if Ketek is found to be the reason for the complications and the injuries that resulted.

Unsafe drug cases are complex and costly to litigate. Experienced representation is essential, and that is exactly what we help provide.
