What makes testosterone drugs dangerous?

Testosterone replacement therapies can pose a serious health risk to men. The latest medical research has revealed that prescription testosterone therapy medication administered via patches, gels, sprays, and injections are capable of creating a higher risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), heart attacks, stroke, or even death.

Burg Simpson has been appointed to a leadership role in this ongoing litigation. U.S. District Judge Matthew F. Kennelly appointed shareholder Seth A. Katz to the Executive Committee in the Testosterone Replacement Therapy Multidistrict Litigation.

Are there studies that link testosterone therapy to heart problems?

In November 2013, a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association linked testosterone therapy in 8,700 men to adverse events such as heart attack, stroke, and death.

In Jan. 29, 2014, Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, spoke with USA Today Online about the heart risks that testosterone therapy poses.

“That’s equivalent to smoking one or two packs of cigarettes a day, or having sky-high cholesterol,” he explained.

In January 2014, a larger study of more than 55,000 men, published in the online medical journal, PLOS/ONE, found that men taking testosterone therapy faced a much higher risk of suffering a heart attack. The PLOS/ONE study found that men under 65 with a history of heart disease faced a two-fold increase in the risk of heart attack. The study also found a similarly increased risk for men over 65 taking testosterone therapy without a history of heart disease.

Following the January 2014 FDA’s Safety Communication, testosterone replacement therapy product manufacturers issued new labels on June 19, 2014, to warn about the increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and pulmonary embolism (PE).
