Legal Action for Zantac Cancer Connections
If you are or have been a Zantac user and have been diagnosed with cancer, you may be eligible for significant compensation. Bighorn Law in Las Vegas can help you with legal matters concerning this connection.
Recent research has linked Zantac to cancer due to one of its components – Ranitidine. This ingredient mixes with common substances in the body, causing high levels of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). The FDA and EPA have considered NDMA a “probably human carcinogen.” While NDMA is found in other drugs, it was found to have existed in Zantac at levels found to be more than what was considered safe.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has linked NDMA to numerous diseases. These include:
- Severe Liver Disease
- Liver Cancer
- Lung Cancer
Anyone who used Zantac had no way to know the link between these cancers. This is why individuals that have used Zantac and have since been diagnosed with cancer should contact a Las Vegas Zantac lawsuit attorney.
What is Zantac?
Zantac is a drug that was promoted to decrease the amount of acid produced by the stomach, easing heartburn and stomach pain. The class of drugs is called histamine H2-receptor antagonists. The drug has been on the market since the 1980s, both over-the-counter and by prescription.
Zantac is available in many different forms, and there are also generic brands with the same dangerous ranitidine connection. Some common brands include:
- Zantac 150 Tablets
- Wal-Zan 150
- Heartburn Relief
- Acid Control
- Zantac 75
- Wal-Zan 75
- Acid Reducer
Voluntary Recall of Ranitidine Products
Prior to the FDA officially recalling Zantac and Ranitidine products, numerous brands voluntarily removed products from the shelves due to the associated risk. The FCA recall took place in April 2020, but voluntary recalls started taking place much earlier, in September 2019.
If you have used Zantac or an equivalent drug and have since been diagnosed with cancer, you may be eligible for significant compensation. Bighorn Law can help you today.
