Endo International Settles Testosterone Lawsuits, Raising Questions About Low-T Safety
Endo International, a pharmaceutical giant, has reached a significant settlement agreement to resolve thousands of lawsuits alleging injuries from its testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) products. This move shines a spotlight on the growing legal landscape surrounding the safety of TRT, potentially paving the way for similar settlements with other companies facing similar suits.
Key Points of the Endo Settlement:
- Resolves “All Known” Claims: Endo has agreed to contribute to a settlement fund, allowing plaintiffs who claim they suffered adverse effects from its TRT medications to seek compensation.
- No Admission of Wrongdoing: Despite the settlement, Endo maintains its innocence and does not admit to any wrongdoing.
- 1,300 Cases Impacted: This agreement covers approximately 1,300 lawsuits against Endo, including 900 filed in a nationwide multidistrict litigation.
Ripple Effect Across the Industry:
Endo’s settlement is not an isolated event. Other major pharmaceutical companies are also facing a wave of lawsuits concerning their TRT products:
- AbbVie: Over 4,000 lawsuits in the multidistrict litigation allege harm from AndroGel, its popular TRT medication.
- Eli Lilly: Approximately 500 cases in the multidistrict litigation claim injuries associated with Axiron, another prominent TRT product.
- Total Pending Cases: An estimated 7,700 testosterone lawsuits are currently active in the multidistrict litigation.
