Zantac Class Action Lawsuits
In September 2019, the FDA reported that a carcinogenic contaminant known as NDMA was found in Zantac products. The amount of contamination was found to be between 3,000 and 26,000 times higher than the determined “safe” amount. As such, patients regularly taking Zantac may have been exposed to a dangerous cancer-causing contaminant.
The first Zantac lawsuit was filed in California, alleging that drug makers Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim manufactured, marketing and promoted a product that they knew contained a cancer-causing agent. During the time in which they marketed Zantac, scientific research has shown a clear link between Zantac’s active ingredient (ranitidine) and NDMA. Despite this research, the pharmaceutical company chose not to disclose this risk to either the government or consumers, thus increasing profits.
Zantac Complications and Cancer
Short-term exposure to NDMA can cause liver damage. Long-term exposure to NDMA can result in permanent liver damage, as well as cancerous tumors. Symptoms of NDMA exposure include headaches, fever, jaundice, vomiting, and abdominal cramps.
Complications and cancers allegedly caused by Zantac include, but are not limited to:
- Nervous system disorders
- Vitamin B-12 deficiency
- Liver failure
- Increased risk of pneumonia
- Low platelets
- Bladder cancer
- Colon and rectal cancers
- Esophageal and stomach cancers
- Intestinal cancers
- Kidney cancers
- Liver cancers
- Lung cancers in non-smokers
- Ovarian and uterine cancers
- Pancreatic cancers
- Prostate cancers
- Testicular cancers
