Uloric Health Risks

  • Uloric Cardiovascular Uloric (febuxostat) is a medication prescribed to lower uric acid levels in individuals with gout. Gout is a type of arthritis that occurs when a naturally occurring substance in the body known as uric acid builds up, causing sudden attacks of redness, swelling, and pain in joints. Approved for sale by the FDA in February 2009, Uloric is intended to lower uric acid levels in the bloodstream.
  • Increased risk of death, heart–related death, and other cardiac events — Upon initial FDA approval, the FDA included a Warning and Precaution concerning cardiovascular events because clinical trials conducted before approval of the drug showed a higher rate of heart–related problems in patients treated with Uloric, as compared to alternative gout medication, allopurinol. These problems included heart attacks, strokes, and heart–related deaths.
  • As a result of clinical trial results, the FDA required Uloric manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceuticals to conduct a safety study over 6,000 patients with gout, who were treated with either Uloric or allopurinol. The study found that Uloric showed an increased risk of heart–related deaths and death from all causes compared to allopurinol.
  • FDA Black Box Warning – The FDA performed an in–depth review of potentially negative results from safety clinical trials and concluded that there was an increased risk of heart–related death and death from all causes with Uloric. On February 21, 2019, the FDA required Takeda to update the Uloric labeling with a Black Box Warning. To be approved to take Uloric, patients must first prove that they either took allopurinol without positive relief of gout or suffered side effects from allopurinol.
  • CAUTION: The FDA advises patients: Do not stop taking Uloric without first talking to your health care professional, as doing so can worsen your gout.

Holding Drug and Medical Device Companies Accountable

  • Too often the true extent and scope of the dangers associated with a particular prescription drug or medical device are hidden from the medical profession and patients. Whether from downplaying the risks or simply ignoring evidence of them, these companies reap billions of dollars in profits at the expense of patient health and safety. When this occurs, these companies must be held accountable.
  • The power and proclivity of the Food and Drug Administration to hold these companies accountable only extend so far. For individual patients who have been harmed by defective drugs and medical devices, the court system is usually the only pathway for justice.
  • We have a proven track record of holding drug and medical device manufacturers accountable for injuries sustained by our clients and for monetary damages caused by those injuries.

Financial Help

Financial Consequences of Personal Injury

  • The financial burdens resulting from personal injury can be substantial and include the costs of hospitalization, surgery, doctors, rehabilitation, physical and occupational therapy, travel, prescription medications and other items. In addition, there is likely pain and suffering and oftentimes a loss of current and future income, of family and spousal consortium, and of the enjoyment of pre-injury activities and mobility. In cases of severe and/or permanent injury, the future costs of care, treatment, maintenance and support can be overwhelming.
  • Insurance may only go so far in covering these costs and losses. Legal action may be the only way to protect yourself and your family to obtain adequate moneys to address your needs and secure your and your family's future.
Protect your Rights

Protect Your Rights

  • Personal injury claims, including those for product liability and negligence, are subject to various statutes of limitation. These laws limit the amount of time within which a claim for monetary damages may be brought against the company or person responsible for the injuries. Consequently, acting promptly to protect your, or a loved one's, legal claims and rights is imperative.
  • Statutes of limitation vary from state to state. Generally, they can begin to run from either the date of your injury or the date you first discovered that the injury may have been caused by a defective product. These are important distinctions that may impact your legal rights.
  • If you or a loved one suffered a drug or medical device injury or a type of personal injury claim that we are investigating, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you.
