What is Uloric?

Approved in 2009, Takeda’s blockbuster, Uloric (febuxostat) was designed to treat gout and symptoms of arthritis associated with hyperuricemia.  According to the FDA, gout impacts over 8 million Americans.  Unfortunately, there are a limited number of medications available to treat the pain and inflammation associated with gout.  When approved in 2009, it was the first new gout medication to come along in 40 years.

Is Uloric Dangerous?

The Uloric lawsuit lawyers at Loncar Lyon Jenkins have been monitoring Uloric since 2015 because of the associated risks of:

  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • Tachycardia
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Acute myocardial infarction
  • Other acute cardiovascular injuries

Warning Signs and Symptoms Associated with Uloric Use

  • Sudden severe headache
  • Trouble speaking 
  • Dizziness
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Chest pain 
  • Numbness or weakness on one side of the body

Takeda originally sought and was denied FDA approval in 2005 for fear of cardiovascular side effects.  After additional studies, the FDA granted approval in 2009.  However, Takeda was forced to include a warning of cardiovascular events in the Warnings and Precautions section of the labeling information.

On February 21, 2019, the FDA required Takeda to add a black box warning regarding heart-related death to patients using Uloric.  A black box warning is the highest level of warning the FDA can add to a medicine’s labeling information.  It means the FDA believes there is reasonable evidence of a link between a medication and the side effect.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

What is the Statute Of Limitations in Texas?

What Takeda knew and when they knew it will have a major impact on this litigation.  In addition, the updated labeling information likely triggers the statute of limitations for people already injured by the drug. 

The statute of limitations is the time limit in which a lawsuit must be filed.  Failure to file suit within the time limit usually prevents a person from any financial recovery. It can take 6 months or more to fully investigate an individual case for litigation. In a handful of states the time limit to file suit can be as short as 1 year.  Those injured by Takeda need to take legal action immediately!  Your time may already be running out to file suit.  Do not miss out on the compensation you deserve.

Loncar Lyon Jenkins has been handling pharmaceutical and medical device injury claims since 1999, successfully litigating thousands of cases nationwide for victims of the pharmaceutical industry putting profits ahead of safety.  The personal injury attorneys at Loncar Lyon Jenkins have handled pharmaceutical and medical device cases in 15 federal courts nationwide and we are eligible to practice in any federal court that would be assigned the Uloric litigation.
