More Information About Onglyza
Onglyza is the brand name for the medication saxagliptin. It is part of a class of Type 2 diabetes drugs known as incretin mimetics. Incretin mimetics work by stimulating the release of insulin to manage a person’s blood sugar. Onglyza was developed by the Swedish-British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca and approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009.
Studies Find Link Between Onglyza and Increased Health Risks
Recent studies, including one published in the New England Journal of Medicine, suggest connections between Onglyza use and an increased risk for heart failure and possible pancreatic cancer. In fact, the New England Journal of Medicine found a 27 percent increase in risk of heart failure among patients taking Onglyza. While there has been no recall issued for Onglyza, the FDA did issue a statement in 2015 that associated Onglyza use with a “significant or near-significant” increased death risk.
Why Do I Need an Attorney for a Pharmaceutical Claim?
A personal injury or wrongful death claim against a pharmaceutical company is quite a bit different than a similar claim against an individual. Pharmaceutical companies are giant corporations with lots of money, and armies of lawyers employed to fight on their behalf. The average person doesn’t stand a chance against these skilled litigators and the deep pockets behind them. Attorneys for large pharmaceutical companies will use the tactic of offering the plaintiff far less than what the cost of an injury is actually worth.
Having a skilled attorney on your side can prevent such injustices from taking place. An aggressive pharmaceutical litigator representing your case will push back against the medication manufacturer’s legal team and see that your settlement will cover both your present and future damages and losses. Don’t try to fight a monster without sufficient reinforcements to back you up.
