Breast Cancer Is The Latest Disease Allegedly Caused By Zantac

The family of a deceased Florida woman thinks their mother died of cancer caused by taking Zantac

Monday, May 18, 2020 - The number of lawsuits against Sanofi, the maker Zantac, the world's best-selling heartburn medication, continues to grow as does the variety of the types of cancer that plaintiffs allege it has caused them. Most recently the estate of a Florida woman who died in May of 2018, filed a complaint against Sanofi and others alleging that the woman's three-decades-long love affair with the drug caused her to develop breast cancer. Others have filed suit claiming Zantac caused their stomach, bladder, esophageal, prostate, gastrointestinal, and now breast cancer. The deceased woman's son alleges that his mother took the anti-heartburn medication regularly for more than 30 years to fight acid indigestion. Zantac cancer lawsuits are handled by top national attorneys with a winning track record against big pharmaceutical companies and offer a free consultation before filing a lawsuit claim.

AboutLawsuits.com reports on the crux of the suit filed on May 12, 2020, in the US District Court for Southern Florida. "The lawsuit names various manufacturers of prescription and over-the-counter Zantac as defendants, including Boehringer Ingelheim, Sanofi US Services, Chattem, Pfizer, and GlaxoSmithKline, indicating the drug makers have known for years that the active pharmaceutical ingredient ranitidine converts to high levels of the cancer-causing chemical N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA)." If you or a deceased loved had taken Zantac regularly over many years and have suffered from cancer of the stomach, bladder, esophageal, prostate, gastrointestinal, or breast cancer you may qualify to file a claim against Sanofi or other ranitidine manufacturers. More importantly, if you have taken Zantac you should seek medical attention as the anti-heartburn medicine is accused of causing life-threatening cancer, and delaying treatment could make managing the disease more difficult. Diagnosing Zantac cancer early is essential in catching cancer before it spreads and is impossible to stop.

According to About Lawsuits, the family of the decease only recently put two and two together when they discovered that scientific tests of Zantac by online testing pharmacy Vaisure uncovered alarmingly excessive levels of the cancer-causing chemical N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) had developed in the medication. Reasons being investigated as the cause of the spike in the carcinogen are thought to be storing the medication at higher than average room temperatures and also when ranitidine mixes with the common meat preservative nitrate in the stomach, ironically very often the reason one reaches for the Zantac after eating in the first place. Other reasons that are being explored for ranitidine's instability are "side reactions from drug syntheses, the breakdown of unstable drug compounds, and contamination from recycled solvents used in manufacturing," according to Chemical & Engineering News (CE&S).

This and other lawsuits against the makers of ranitidine heartburn and acid reflux medication were triggered when Valisure reported its finding of over 200 times the acceptable levels of ranitidine to the US Food and Drug Administration. Small increases in ranitidine can be significant as the chemical bioaccumulates in the tissue of those who take it regularly for a long time. Sanofi reacted by voluntarily withdrawing Zantac from the market pending the results of further scientific testing. The FDA initially failed to venture an opinion on the company's voluntary recall however, the agency recently announced that it was suggesting that manufacturers of ranitidine recall all lots and types of these medications, according to CE&S.
