Zantac Kidney Cancer

Zantac and Kidney Cancer Lawsuits

Our Attorneys are Reviewing Zantac Lawsuits for People Across the Country. If you took Zantac and developed Kidney Cancer, you may be entitled to compensation from the makers of Zantac.

The US Food and Drug Administration has been investigating Zantac after it found high levels of a known carcinogen called N-notrosodimethylamine (NDMA). While some NDMA may be present in nature and find its way into the food and drink supply, the amount discovered in Zantac is well beyond “normal.” The high amount could be from a design defect, about which the makers of Zantac should have known.

Zantac is also called ranitidine, which is its generic name. Both versions are very popular antacid medications that have been on the international medication market for decades. Zantac comes in over the counter doses and prescription strength. It is used to treat acid reflux, heartburn, ulcers, and other gastrointestinal conditions.

People are Filing Lawsuits to Hold Drug Companies Accountable

Lawsuits are being filed by those who developed cancer after taking Zantac or their loved ones. These claims allege that the makers of Zantac concealed the link between the drug and cancer, putting them in grave danger. People who file Zantac cancer lawsuits want to collect compensation for their medical bills, pain, and suffering. These cases often involve family members filing wrongful death claims for the loss of their loved ones to cancer. One of the diseases closely associated with Zantac is kidney cancer.

Other lawsuits are being filed by consumers who did not get cancer from Zantac but want their money back after spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a dangerous medication. These individuals want to hold the makers of the drug accountable for misrepresenting the drug and failing to issue warnings about its dangers.

The attorneys at Alonso Krangle, LLP are reviewing Zantac cases for victims across the country. Our personal injury and wrongful death attorneys will work hard to ensure the drug makers take responsibility for misleading the public and putting trusting consumers in danger.

NDMA Found in Zantac Can Cause Kidney Cancer

The World Health Organization supports the assumption that consumption of NDMA, the toxin found in Zantac, is positively associated with cancer. Studies have positively linked NDMA to the development of kidney and other cancers in animals.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that, more than 60,000 men and women receive a diagnosis of kidney cancer or renal cancer every year. About 14,000 people die from the disease annually.

What are the Symptoms of Kidney Cancer?

Kidney cancer, in its earliest stages, usually does not cause noticeable symptoms. There are no tests to determine if kidney cancer exists before the presentation of symptoms. As kidney cancer advances and symptoms emerge, you may experience:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fever that comes and goes
  • Feeling a lump in your abdomen
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Blood in urine
  • Loss of appetite
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Persistent lower back pain
  • Persistent pain in your side

How Do Doctors Treat Kidney Cancer?

Kidney cancer, as with other cancers, progresses in stages. The higher the stage, the more it has spread away from the kidney to other parts of your body. Determining the stage of your kidney cancer is an essential step in your treatment plan. You and your health care providers will discuss what protocol is right for you, given your diagnosis, general health, and goals.

Types of Treatment For Kidney Cancer Might Include:

  • Nephrectomy – the surgical removal your cancerous kidney
  • Partial Nephrectomy – the surgical removal of the malignant tumor from the kidney
  • Cryoablation – freezing cancer cells
  • Radiofrequency Ablation – heating or burning cancer cells
  • Surgery to remove lymph nodes or cancers from other parts of the body.
  • Immunotherapy
  • Targeted therapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Clinical trials

What Causes Kidney Cancer to Develop?

Cancer is the result of cell mutation. There are innumerable factors that can affect cell development and cause variations to occur. The Mayo Clinic reports that incidents of kidney cancer on the rise. Renal cell cancer, which is the most common type of kidney cancer, has no specific known origin. However, several risk factors can affect the likelihood of getting kidney cancer. They include:

  • Exposure to certain chemicals
  • Taking medicines for an extended period
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Family history
  • Your age
  • History of kidney infections or other problems

NDMA Contaminated Zantac is Being Recalled Over Cancer Concerns

After the FDA reported finding unacceptably high levels of NDMA, several national drug store chains began taking Zantac and generic Zantac products off the shelves. Large pharmaceutical companies like Sanofi, GlaxoSmithKline, and Apotex have issued full or modified recalls of their Zantac and ranitidine products. Several countries outside the US have recalled Zantac over fears that the presence of NDMA is dangerous to consumers.

Are You Eligible for Compensation from the Makers of Zantac?

Answer this simple question to find out if you might qualify to file a lawsuit against the makers of Zantac: Did you or someone you love regularly take Zantac or generic Zantac? If so, you might be able to collect damages for the money you spent on your medication.

Plaintiffs in these lawsuits allege that the makers of Zantac failed to provide warnings about the risks of taking Zantac, that they knew about the dangers, and mislead the public. These plaintiffs allege that if they knew how dangerous Zantac could be, they would not have purchased or taken the drug.

Ask another question: Did you or someone you love develop Kidney cancer after taking Zantac and/or die because of it? If so, you may also be able to collect damages from the makers of Zantac for a variety of losses. You might be able to obtain lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, or future earnings.

Like To Express My Appreciation To You And Your Firm
I just would like to express my appreciation to you and your firm for assisting me with this matter. I am now a single mother of six children and I have been going through so much financial strife. I did not know how I would get school supplies for my children so I have been working two jobs to try to gain some extra funds. This is a blessing to me and my children. Thank you again for all you guys have done for us.
We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.
You’ll be in good hands!

I was involved in an accident and needed a good Personal Injury Attorney. A friend referred me to David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. After my initial phone conversation with David, I was confident that I found the right Attorney. David was not only extremely thorough, he kept me updated on every stage of my case. Most importantly, he was always available for questions and followed-up promptly. In most cases, the same day. Since there was a 3-hour time zone difference, I was very appreciative from a client stand point.

With his expertise and guidance, I had a successful outcome. I felt very fortunate that David and his wonderful staff represented me.

If you ever find yourself in need of expert legal advice and guidance. I highly recommend you contact David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. You’ll be in good hands!

Dave Krangle Worked Restlessly On This Case Until We Won
I consider David Krangle as my attorney for many years now. Going back about 13 years ago my father was involved in a hit and run accident. David had gone the extra mile to win our case….. Mr. David Krangle worked restlessly on this case until we won the case. Since then, if anybody asks for a good attorney I recommend David Krangle with confidence. He has helped a number of my friends and relatives and they all appreciated his professionalism, prompt responses to any inquiry during case development, careful study of all details pertaining to their case. He treats his clients as family. Thank you, Mr. Krangle, wishing you a continued success, good health and prosperity.

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.
