Home | Medical-Newswire.Com: Tracks Avandia Litigation, Other Important Avandia Information through its Avandia Information Portal

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 04, 2007 ) Denver, CO -- In the wake of one of the nation's first lawsuits related to diabetes drug Avandia (filed in US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Case No. 207CV254), is pleased to remind readers that a complete -- and completely free -- collection of news and information on the drug is available 24 hours a day at Avandia is a medication prescribed to control Type 2 diabetes. It came under fire this spring when the New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing that using the drug increased patients' risk of heart attacks by up to an alarming 43 percent. The study also showed that the subjects' risk of death from a cardiac incident was increased by up to 64 percent. In response, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has required manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline to place a "black box" warning on the the drug's label. This represent the most serious warning that the FDA can require. As the web's most complete resource for the legal issues that affect Americans, is following the issue closely at its Avandia side effects information portal and related Avandia blog.While an increased risk of heart attack represents a serious danger to the sufferer of any illness, it is especially devastating for diabetes patients, who already run an increased risk of heart disease. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), heart disease or stroke (which has its roots in vascular problems) will be the cause of death for two out of three diabetics, statistically speaking. Visitors looking for this and other factual information on the drug can find it at the Avandia blog, which tracks news and research information as it appears. A recent post discusses the Avandia lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas (Case No. 207CV254), filed by the family of Larry Alan Stafford, who died May 21, 2007 of a heart attack at age 60 -- and had been taking a drug that contained Avandia as one of it components.
