Ketek May Cause Liver Damage. Parker & Waichman, LLP (www.www.yourlawyer.com) announces that it has been retained by individuals who suffered liver damage and liver failure after using the antibiotic Ketek.

Ketek is manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis (NYSE: SNY) and is commonly prescribed to treat bacterial infections in the lungs and sinuses. It has been reported that the FDA and Sanofi-Aventis are in discussions about revising Ketek’s safety label after FDA reviewers recommended a strong warning about cases of liver failure. The Wall Street Journal reported that an internal FDA report linked ‘Ketek’ to 12 cases of liver failure, including four deaths. For more information on Ketek please visit:

Ketek was approved by the FDA in 2004 for the treatment of respiratory infections

‘Ketek’ was approved by the FDA in 2004 for the treatment of respiratory infections. The FDA rejected the drug in 2001 and 2003, asking for more safety information. On January 20, 2006 the Annals of Internal Medicine released an article detailing liver toxicity in three ‘Ketek’ patients.

This article detailed patients at Carolinas Medical Center, in Charlotte, North Carolina, who developed various liver problems after using the drug. One patient took ‘Ketek’ for just five days and died from liver failure, another patient required a liver transplant after using the drug, and the third person developed hepatitis after using the medication but later recovered. While the authors of this article stated that these cases don’t conclusively prove that ‘Ketek’ caused the liver problems, the FDA issued a public health advisory on January 20, 2006 that warned of a possible link. The FDA advisory is available at http://www.fda.gov/medwatch/safety/2006/safety06.htm Ketek.

Jo-Anne and the team at Parker Waichman is the absolute best. After being rear ended in May I have been contacted on a constant basis, I have been checked up on by them and the rest of the team more than my actual family. They are great listeners and are available. Calling the office is a breeze and never a long wait. I would recommend anyone to them especially based on my experience with them. I really don't think that there is a better set of Lawyers to help with my particular case.
