A recent study has reinforced Accutane attorney claims that the acne drug can be linked to certain instances of inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis.
"Time is quickly running out for Roche," said Jim Keller, an attorney for the high-profile Accutane Team litigation group. "Until now, much of the evidence against Roche was anecdotal. Now, we have medical evidence that proves our clients' illnesses are a direct result of Accutane use."
The drug study was performed by researchers from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and they presented their findings to the American College of Gastroenterology, which revealed a higher incidence of bowel disorders among Accutane users compared to those who did not use the acne drug.
Accutane attorneys, like those for the Accutane Team, have filed lawsuits agaisnt Roche to force the pharmaceutical company to provide full disclosure to clients so that they are properly informed of the risks or, alternatively, to take the medication off the market completely.
The Accutane Team represents clients who were not adequately informed of the increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease. The legal team continues to secure verdicts on behalf of their injured clients and are actively reviewing Accutane cases for potential claims.
