Avandia Case Background
GlaxoSmithKline introduced Avandia in 1999 as an anti-diabetes drug. Avandia has been linked to serious side effects, including:
- heart disease;
- stroke; and
Plaintiffs filed lawsuits and formed MDL No. 1871 in the Judicial Panel on Multi District Litigation in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Plaintiffs who have suffered heart attacks or related injuries claim that Avandia and two other drugs containing Avandia — Avandamet and Avandaryl — caused an increased risk of heart attack (among other injuries). Defendant GlaxoSmithKline denies this, as well as the allegation that it failed to provide adequate warnings regarding this risk.
