Attorney Kimberly Baden represents hundreds of children with birth defects allegedly caused by numerous pharmaceutical drugs, including Zoloft®, Effexor®, Topamax® and Zofran®. She previously litigated against GlaxoSmithKline in the Paxil® birth defect litigation and in July 2012 Kimberly was appointed to the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in In re Zoloft (sertraline hydrochloride) Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2342.
The injectable form of Zofran, which is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), was approved by the FDA in 1991 for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Oral dosage forms were approved in 1995 for the treatment of post-operative nausea and vomiting and an oral disintegrating tablet, Zofran ODT, was approved in February 1999. The first generic versions of Zofran were approved in 2006. Sandoz marketed the authorized generic for Zofran tablets and Zofran ODT.
There have been several studies that reflect an association between Zofran and severe birth defects, including an increased risk “for a cardiovascular defect and notably cardiac septum defect." The Toronto Star newspaper published an article in June 2014 that detailed many of the concerns we have with Zofran. Read the full article.
