What Is the Problem with Kombiglyze XR?
Research shows Kombiglyze XR and other similar drugs may put patients at risk of heart complications. Dozens of patients are filing lawsuits against Kombiglyze’s manufacturer AstraZeneca and its previous partner Bristol-Myers Squibb alleging that the companies failed to adequately test the drugs’ safety prior to selling it, which ultimately caused their cardiovascular injuries.
Does Kombiglyze XR Put Patients at Risk of Heart Failure?
If you Kombiglyze XR side effects call a Kombiglyze XR lawyer today
A clinical trial funded by AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb was one of the first studies to report cardiovascular health risks associated with these drugs.
Saxagliptin Assessment of Vascular Outcomes Recorded in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus, or the SAVOR trial, found that patients with a history of heart problems who took Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR had a 27% greater chance of being hospitalized for heart failure than patients who took a placebo. Patients with chronic kidney disease and / or previous heart failure were more likely to be hospitalized. When an FDA panel reviewed the results from the SAVOR study, 14 out of 15 panelists voted to require a safety warning on all Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR bottles that the drugs could result in cardiovascular injury.
Patients are filing lawsuits against AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb alleging that Kombiglyze XR caused their cardiovascular injuries. Complaints allege that AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb failed to adequately test the drug prior to their sale.
In February 2018, more than 80 Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR lawsuits were centralized in Lexington, Kentucky. Plaintiffs' attorneys said that centralization is key to reducing inconsistencies since these lawsuits were "just the tip of the iceberg" and the number of filed complaints was expected to grow.
In a complaint filed in January 2018, Illinois plaintiff Jerald Adams alleged that after being exposed to saxagliptin after taking both Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR, the diagnosis of his heart failure was “directly related to taking these drugs.”
In the complaint, Mr. Adams alleged that the manufacturers not only knew of the cardiovascular injury risk associated with saxagliptin, but that they also failed to warn or mitigate this risk despite their knowledge.
"At all relevant times, defendants had knowledge that there was a significantly increased risk of adverse events associated with saxagliptin, including heart failure, congestive heart failure, cardiac failure, and death related to those events, and despite this knowledge, defendants continued to manufacture, market, distribute, sell, and profit from sales of saxagliptin," the complaint alleges.
Some lawsuits filed in New Jersey claim that Bristol-Myers and AstraZeneca did not just do a poor job of testing the safety of their drugs, but that they also did not conduct the clinical trials recommended by the FDA in 2008 prior to Onglyza’s sale debut in 2009.
Kombiglyze XR lawsuits allege that AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb failed to:
Warn the FDA, the medical community, and the general public of the cardiovascular risks associated with these drugs.
Conduct adequate pre-clinical and clinical testing to determine if the drugs caused increased risks of cardiovascular injuries.
Design the drugs so as to minimize certain adverse effects.
Conduct adequate post-market monitoring of saxagliptin’s adverse events
WHAT ARE SOME SPECIFIC CASE EXAMPLES?
Dennis Turner: Mr. Turner too Onglyza from September 2012 to August 2015. In October 2014, he suffered congestive heart failure and filed a lawsuit on December 12, 2017.
