Zofran Birth Defect Injuries
The Blackwell Law Firm is investigating claims of personal injury related to the drug Zofran (ondansetron). Zofran is an anti-nausea medication approved by the FDA for use in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The drug is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
However, Zofran was commonly prescribed to treat morning sickness in pregnant women. Once GSK began marketing its drug Zofran for use with morning sickness, reports of children born with birth defects began to arise. In recent years, several studies have raised concerns about the risk of birth defects in children. These injuries include cleft palate, cleft lip, congenital heart problems and other birth defects.
Many pregnant women suffer from morning sickness. Despite the research, the FDA has not fully acted to warn or prevent patients concerning this risk. If your family has been affected by Zofran, please contact the Blackwell Law Firm. We would be happy to discuss your claim or provide additional information.
