Bailey & Oliver Law Firm Discusses FDA Review of Calcitonin Products
Bailey & Oliver Law Firm wants residents to be aware of the FDA’s review on calcitonin salmon.
Calcitonin salmon is a man-made version of the hormone calcitonin that is found in salmon. Medical professionals will often prescribe these products to patients with osteoporosis and Paget’s disease. Some calcitonin products include Novartis AG’s Miacalcin injection and nasal spray and Unigene Laboratories Inc's nasal spray.
The FDA is questioning how effective calcitonin salmon is in reducing fractures in the treatment of osteoporosis. Next week, the agency will decide whether or not to allow these products to continue to be marketed.
Last year, European regulators recommended that patients not use calcitonin salmon long-term after a review found evidence of an increased risk of cancer after long-term use. In addition, they recommended that the products should only be used for short-term use in Paget's disease and excess calcium in the blood caused by cancer. However, the regulators ruled that the benefits of calcitonin-containing medications did not outweigh their risks in the treatment of osteoporosis.
Bailey & Oliver Law Firm believes that pharmaceutical companies have a duty to adequately warn the public about their products’ dangers. Residents that have been harmed by prescription drugs may be eligible to file a legal claim. For additional information about product liability claims, please visit www.baileyoliverlawfirm.com.
