Why You May Bring a Lawsuit Against the Makers of Zantac
In 2019, online pharmacy and laboratory Valisure alerted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the active ingredient in Zantac, ranitidine, could produce unsafe levels of a chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in the human body.
NDMA is designated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a “probable human carcinogen,” and the findings that ranitidine in Zantac may produce a dangerous amount of NDMA in the body is significant because:
- It suggested that Zantac could be inherently dangerous to human health
- It suggested that Zantac could increase the risk of developing cancer in people who took it
- It suggested that manufacturers of Zantac and other drugs containing ranitidine, as well as the FDA, failed to detect or alert consumers of a potentially lethal property of the drug
The FDA later acknowledged these findings by requesting that all manufacturers of drugs containing ranitidine, including Zantac, remove those products from the consumer market.
If you or a loved one developed various forms of cancer after taking Zantac, generic ranitidine, or another drug containing ranitidine, then you may be eligible to start or join a lawsuit. According to a lawsuit designated as multidistrict litigation (MDL) 2924, people who ingest ranitidine:
- May be susceptible to developing liver cancer, intestinal cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, bladder cancer, pancreatic cancer, and kidney cancer
- May grow the sort of tumors seen in laboratory animals who are given NDMA specifically to grow tumors for research purposes
- May have levels of NDMA in their system that are 400 times greater than levels deemed medically “acceptable”
The lawsuit adds that anybody who has taken ranitidine, and by extension Zantac, since 1983 (the year when Zantac was approved for sale to consumers) could have been exposed to an elevated risk of cancer.
If you or a loved one falls into the category of individuals who took Zantac, generic ranitidine, or another drug containing ranitidine and then later developed cancer, you may be able to obtain compensation for your losses through a lawsuit.
