Epogen and Procrit are controversial drugs used to treat anemia, which is often associated with cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

The primary concern with these drugs is that they might be overprescribed by medical professionals as a result of questionable marketing practices. Anemia drugs, also called Erythropoiesis-Stimulating Agents, account for upwards to $10 Billion in sales annually!

Because of the over prescription it is possible that some of the risks of high levels of hemoglobin, which these drugs cause, are being overlooked in favor of the purported positive effects.  Some of the most dangerous side effects include heart attack, high blood pressure, and stroke.

Furthermore, there is a large possibility of Epogen and Procrit increasing cancer risks. Amgen, the maker of Epogen, makes, in the Black Box Warning, the following advisory:

"ESAs shortened overall survival and/or increased the risk of tumor progression or recurrence in clinical studies of patients with breast, non-small cell lung, head and neck, lymphoid, and cervical cancers."

If you or a loved one has experienced serious cardiovascular problems after taking either Epogen or Procrit, contact our attorneys today for a free consultation. You may be entitled to compensation, and it is our goal to secure a just recompense.
