Talcum Powder Lawyers Win For Ovarian Cancer Victim

J&J  Has Been Ordered to Pay $417 Million

(Reuters) – A California jury on Monday ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million to a woman who claimed she developed ovarian cancer after using the company’s talc-based products like Johnson’s Baby Powder for feminine hygiene.
The Los Angeles Superior Court jury’s verdict in favor of California resident Eva Echeverria was the largest yet in lawsuits alleging J&J failed to adequately warn consumers about the cancer risks of its talc-based products.
“We are grateful for the jury’s verdict on this matter and that Eva Echeverria was able to have her day in court,” Mark Robinson, her lawyer, said in a statement.
The verdict included $70 million in compensatory damages and $347 million in punitive damages. It was a major setback for J&J, which faces 4,800 similar claims nationally and has been hit with over $300 million in verdicts by juries in Missouri.
“We will appeal today’s verdict because we are guided by the science, which supports the safety of Johnson’s Baby Powder,” J&J said.
Echeverria’s lawsuit was the first out of hundreds of California talc cases to go to trial.
The 63-year-old claimed she developed terminal ovarian cancer after decades of using J&J’s products. Her lawyers argued J&J encouraged women to use its products despite knowing of studies linking ovarian cancer to genital talc use.
J&J’s lawyers countered that studies and federal agencies have not found that talc products are carcinogenic.
The trial follows five prior ones in Missouri state court, where many lawsuits are pending.
J&J lost four of those trials and, along with a talc supplier, has been hit with $307 million in verdicts. Before Monday, the largest verdict was for $110 million.
The Missouri cases, which have largely been brought by out-of-state plaintiffs, have faced jurisdictional questions after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling in June that limited where personal injury lawsuits can be filed.
In a decision in a case involving Bristol-Myers Squibb Co, the Supreme Court said state courts cannot hear claims against companies that are not based in the state when the alleged injuries did not occur there.
The ruling prompted a St. Louis judge, at New Jersey-based J&J’s urging, to declare a mistrial in the talc case already underway.
The judge has nonetheless left the door open for the plaintiffs to argue they still have jurisdiction based on a Missouri-based bottler J&J used to package its products.
The case is Echeverria et al v. Johnson & Johnson, Los Angeles Superior Court, No. BC628228.

Johnson and Johnson Hernia Mesh Harming Women

Another Johnson and Johnson product is receiving adverse reports for complications and mesh failure. This product is the Johnson and Johnson Ethicon hernia mesh. In our continuing attempt to help women injured by dangerous drugs, devices and consumer products, we have lawyers filing hernia mesh lawsuits for victims.

Physiomesh Causing Complications

 

The Physiomesh is a flexible composite mesh that is used in hernia repair.  It is made from  polypropylene, the same  mesh is also used to reinforce the vaginal wall in transvaginal mesh surgery.  This the same vaginal mesh that has been falling apart in women.

Johnson and Johnson Withdraws Physiomesh

In May of 2016, Ethicon  issued a worldwide recall of Physiomesh. The recall was based on the fact that the medical product was associated with a higher risk of  complications, including the need for additional surgeries. Many women who underwent hernia repair surgeries that used Physiomesh experienced mesh failure  events.

What Are The Dangers of Physiomesh?

Abdominal pain;
Necessary revision surgery to remove Physiomesh;
Recurrence of hernia;
Infection;
Erosion;
Perforations;
Device failure;
Bowel obstruction;
Fever;
Constipation;
Mesh migration;
Mesh contraction;
Intestinal fistulae;
Sepsis;
Diarrhea; and
death.

FDA On Physiomesh

A November 2010 report notes  “tears, rips, holes in device” are reported, leading to “minimal adhesion” and removal of the mesh. A February 2012 report in which a patient, who underwent hernia repair surgery that used Physiomesh, returned one week  after surgery with complaints of vomiting, constipation, and abdominal pain and distention. The  symptoms were a result of the Physiomesh. Ethicon did issue a voluntary recall  and was not mandated by the FDA to do so.

Talcum Powder Dangerous and They Never Told You

The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline continues to keep woman updated on the news regarding the link between Talcum Powder products and ovarian cancer. We continue to be amazed and horrified as we learn again and again THEY KNEW and never told us about this link. Didn’t anyone tell them that ovarian cancer can be fatal and destroy lives. We can lose our mothers, grandmothers, wives, daughters, friends and women we love and care about from this fatal disease.

We found this article online written by a dermatologist and would like to share it with our readers. We will be commenting as well.

Why we should all be more careful when sprinkling the talcum powder
by MiriamStoppard
Studies have linked talc to ovarian cancer, especially if used in the genital area, and it can also act as an irritant. It may feel soft and soothing but there are health risks to talc. As a dermatologist, I’ve never been keen on talcum powder. It can accumulate in skin creases and irritate, and its particles can act as an abrasive.

I’m even less happy using talcum powder on babies whose delicate skin is much more vulnerable to damage.

There was a scare a few decades back which linked talcum powder granules to bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease .

In 1991, Welsh scientists also ­discovered particles of talc embedded in ovarian and cervical cancers.

A report out earlier this year linked the use of talc on genitals with a 44% increase in invasive ovarian cancer among African American women.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2006 also classified talcum powder as a possible human carcinogen if used in the female genital area.

But cancer is difficult to understand because it develops over a long period and can be influenced by several factors, including lifestyle, genes and environment. Talc is a natural clay mineral composed of magnesium and silicon.
Researchers have found links to ovarian cancer
Because of its softness it’s often used in cosmetic products, such as blusher, because it prevents caking and absorbs excess moisture.

It’s also added into some tablets and chewing gum. Talc residues are often found near asbestos , a known carcinogen which means manufacturers have to take strong measures to avoid contamination when it is mined.

Some women like to use the powder on their inner thighs to prevent chafing, while others sprinkle it on their underwear to stay fresh.

But in 1982, Harvard professor Dr Daniel W Cramer and his colleagues compared 215 women with ovarian cancer and 215 healthy women who served as a control group.

Women who used talcum powder were at nearly twice the risk of having ovarian cancer than non-users. Those who used it regularly on their genitals and sanitary pads were at more than three times the risk.

Why talc use might lead to cancer is not clear. Studies have shown that talc crystals can move up the genitourinary tract into the peritoneal cavity, where the ovaries are.

And because talc ­particles can set off inflammation, and inflammation plays an important role in the development of ovarian cancer – and any other cancer – could be a likely mechanism.

Now baby powder carries a warning to keep out of reach of children. And pediatricians, as well as dermatologists, discourage its use on babies, who can become ill or die after breathing in the particles.

You have been warned.

The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline suggests. Cornstarch can serve the same purpose and is alot less dangerous. We continue to get calls on a daily basis from women horrified by the news of the dangers of Talcum Powder. Many have lost a loved one to ovarian cancer. Many remember having had the powder sprinkled on them as babies and have used it on their babies. The woman of America are stunned at how this household name is now a danger to their lives. If you believe your diagnosis of ovarian cancer or you have lost a loved one to this disease and it is related to daily use of Talcum Powder products we encourage you to join other woman and families in the Talcum Powder Lawsuit.

Talcum Powder Lawsuits Headed For Consolidation- MDL Status

It looks like the Talcum Powder lawsuits will be consolidated in a multi District litigation. A Multi District Litigation results in  all the ovarian cancer  lawsuits under one judge in one jurisdiction. The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline continues to keep you updated on the progress of the Talcum Powder Lawsuits.
There have been more than 1,200 talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits  filed against Johnson & Johnson in state and federal courts.

A talcum powder lawsuit motion has been filed with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) seeking  to  consolidate  all  ovarian cancer lawsuits  in a single court, under one judge  in order to coordinate pretrial proceedings and make the process easier.  The chosen venue  suggested is the  U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois.

The motion claims  that the current ovarian cancer  plaintiffs reside in several different states and that the Southern District of Illinois would permit convenient travel for the parties and counsel.

Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline is reaching out to women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer following years of regular, repeated use of talcum powder  products for feminine hygiene purposes.

Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits

All of the talcum powder lawsuits have one thing in common. They claim that regular repeated and long term use  of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower products to the genital area  can increase a woman’s risk of being  diagnosed with  ovarian cancer. All the lawsuits  claim  that talc particles can make their way into the vagina and migrate to the ovaries.  The accumulation of talc particles and the constant irritation and inflammation  can promote the growth of cancer cells. A number of studies published since the 1970s have suggested  a link.   Johnson & Johnson has failed to take any steps to warn women of this possible risk and link between Talc products and ovarian cancer.

More than 1,200 talcum powder lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson nationwide.   In April, a St. Louis jury awarded $55 million  to an ovarian cancer victim who used Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based powders for nearly 40 years  for  feminine hygiene . In February, another Missouri trial  resulted in  an award of $72 million for the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer  after using talc products for more than 30 years.

Ovarian Cancer? Is Talcum Powder The New Culprit?

Cervical, Ovarian, Uterine, Vaginal, Vulvar cancer are various types of gynecological cancers women must be made aware of. You must understand your risk factors and the various products on the market that can potentially cause these types of cancer. These cannot be ignored nor can the potential risk of your having used talcum powder for years.
Recently Johnson and Johnson paid  72 million dollars  to a woman’s family after she passed away from ovarian cancer. The jury accepted the claim that the  woman’s use of talcum powder products for feminine hygiene caused for her ovarian cancer and  eventual death. There are no warning  labels on Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower that their  these products may be harmful to women if used this way.
This is not a new idea but women have been shocked and are frightened now. If you feel ashamed talking about your private parts then realize these manufacturers used your fear of not smelling fresh to sell this product and  never told you about the ovarian cancer risk.  It has been reported that over 98,000 women have been  diagnosed with gynecologic cancers last year. Many of these were due to ovarian cancer and we do not know how many of them used the “stay dry” talcum powder marketed to them.

Do you still use talcum powder for personal hygiene?  How many other products do you use that you have no clue may harm you? The manufacturers certainly did not fess up and you obviously cannot trust them to tell you.
After the Johnson and Johnson fiasco I realized how many dangerous drugs and devices that are massive lawsuits have targeted women. We speak to women every day about the potential risk of using talcum powder and people who have lost a loved one to ovarian cancer and now realize their mother, sister grandmother, wife or loved one used these products right where the particles can travel to the ovaries.

The more I  speak with callers about their ovarian cancer and their use of talcum powder products the more I realize how careful we must be and how glad I am my mother pushed old fashioned corn starch. It was also alot cheaper in those days. But, J & J found a great market to go after. The black and Hispanic women who wanted to fit into a white society and smell clean and nice became the ultimate target.  They knew  that choosing their product, if marketed correctly, had very little to do with awareness of cancer  health, and  totally due to  fear of not smelling like a pretty white princess  all day and  every day.

Black woman often  used talcum powder  for her  their entire adult life. These products seemed safe, after all, mothers used talcum powder on their babies, right? Using Talcum Powder products were a part of being in with the other girls. Yet, as far back as 2005 Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center did a study  about these products. Another study   was published in 1997. The studies suggested  there might  be a connection between talcum powder use  and ovarian cancer.
Now we learn the truth thru Talcum Powder Lawsuit  TV lawyer ads.
Is there is a  connection between feminine hygiene powders and ovarian cancer? It seems that biopsies are finding talc particles in the ovaries and these particles may have been there for years. It has been noted that the constant irritation can lead to cancer producing cells. The news is out now. The Johnson and Johnson lawsuit has awakened women  across the  country. They are calling us everyday and the families that lost them to ovarian cancer are calling as well. Do you believe your ovarian cancer diagnosis is from your use of Talcum Powder? Did you lose a loved one to ovarian cancer? Did she use talcum powder daily to keep dry? Do you want to join others in the Talcum Powder lawsuit and send a message to get those bad products off the shelves? Call the Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline..

Taxotere Hair Loss Lawyers | Taxotere Helpline Announced

In continuing to maintain it’s role in helping women injured by dangerous drugs, devices and consumer products the Helpline ” Pink Sites” has launched a Taxotere Helpline and outreach campaign to locate all women effected by permanent hair loss after using Taxotere.

Taxotere Lawyers Filing  Hair Loss Lawsuits

In a recent Taxotere lawsuit a  woman  alleged that her use of breast cancer drug Taxotere (docetaxel) resulted in permanent alopecia, or a total failure of her hair to regrow. Sanofi-Aventis has  failed to warn patients that they may not experience hair regrowth after stopping Taxotere.

 

Taxotere Lawsuits Mount Up
In December of 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration publicly announced  numerous adverse incident  reports related to Taxotere and permanent alopecia in breast cancer chemotherapy patients.

If these  filings continue  Taxotere cases may be  consolidated in federal multidistrict litigation (MDL)

We found this page on the latest research and offer it to our followers. We hope this helps.

Ovarian Cancer – Latest Research
Approved by the Cancer.Net Editorial Board, 04/2015

Doctors are working to learn more about ovarian cancer, ways to prevent it, how to best treat it, and how to provide the best care to people diagnosed with this disease. The following areas of research may include new options for patients through clinical trials. Always talk with your doctor about the diagnostic and treatment options best for you.

Screening For Ovarian Cancer

There are no currently effective screening methods for the general population. A screening method that estimates a woman’s risk of ovarian cancer by using her age and the results of a yearly CA-125 blood test holds promise for detecting early-stage ovarian cancer. An international study is looking into the role of serial CA-125 screening for ovarian cancer. As explained in Diagnosis, CA-125 is a substance called a tumor marker that is found in higher levels in women with ovarian cancer.

In 2012, the U.S Preventative Services Task Force released a statement saying that for the general population of women with no symptoms, screening for ovarian cancer is not helpful and may lead to harm. However, women at high risk for ovarian cancer due to family history or with a BRCA mutation(s) (see Risk Factors) are recommended to have screening with CA-125 blood tests and transvaginal ultrasound. This approach has not been proven to improve survival or detect cancers at an earlier and more curable stage.

Targeted Therapy For Ovarian Cancer

Targeted therapy is a treatment that targets the cancer’s specific genes, proteins, or the tissue environment that contributes to cancer growth and survival.

Some targeted therapy is directed towards specific genes that might be found with abnormalities in certain types of epithelial ovarian cancer. For this purpose, ovarian cancer is divided into two groups:  type I and type II.  Type II cancers are the more typical high grade serous cancers, for which standard chemotherapy has been most effective. These tumors typically are diagnosed at later stages and have mutations in TP53 and BRCA genes in the tumor.  Other mutations are rarely seen.

The BRCA mutation, even if only found in the tumor and not in the blood, may increase the effectiveness of a certain classes of drugs such as PARP inhibitors (see below).  Type I tumors include the more rare types of ovarian cancer including low grade serous, endometrioid, clear cell, and mucinous cancers.  These tumors have a variety of mutations including KRAS, BRAF, PI3KCA and PTEN, which have implications for targeted treatment. Clinical trials in these groups are ongoing.

Anti-Angiogenesis Inhibitors For Ovarian Cancer

Drugs called anti-angiogenesis inhibitors block the action of a protein called vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). These drugs have been shown to increase the cancer’s response to treatment and delay the time it takes for the cancer to return. VEGF promotes angiogenesis, which is the formation of new blood vessels. Because a tumor needs nutrients delivered by blood vessels to grow and spread, the goal of anti-angiogensis therapies is to “starve” the tumor. Bevacizumab (Avastin), an antibody which binds VEGF and prevents it from being active, has been shown to be effective in ovarian cancer.  FDA approval was recently given in the United States for its use in combination with selected chemotherapy for patients with platinum resistant recurrence.
PARP Inhibitors For Ovarian Cancer

Another class of drugs, called PARP inhibitors, are being evaluated for ovarian cancer.  These drugs act on DNA repair in cancer cells, making it difficult for them to replicate.  The BRCA genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) are also normally involved in DNA repair, and a mutation in these genes interfere with this pathway function.  PARP inhibitors make it particularly difficult for cells that otherwise have a BRCA mutation to grow and divide.

The PARP inhibitor olaparib (Lynparza) has received FDA approval in the United States for recurrent disease in patients who have the inherited BRCA mutation and who have received three or more lines of chemotherapy.  In the supporting study of 137 patients with a BRCA mutation, 34% of patients experienced shrinkage in tumor for an average of 7.9 months. A very small number of patients developed secondary hematologic (blood) cancers after use of these drugs. Studies are currently underway with other PARP inhibitors, which do not all require the inherited BRCA mutation. These are being tested to see if they can keep the cancer from coming back after chemotherapy. The potential benefits and risks of PARP therapy should be discussed with your doctor.
Many other new targeted treatments are also now in clinical trials. Increasingly, doctors are learning about each patient’s individual tumor’s biology through direct molecular testing. This information may be useful in matching patients with a clinical trial for a specific targeted therapy.  Learn more about the basics of targeted therapy.

Immunotherapy For Ovarian Cancer

Immunotherapy is usually designed to boost the body’s natural defenses to fight the cancer. It uses materials made either by the body or in a laboratory to bolster, target, or restore immune system function. Researchers are currently examining whether drugs called checkpoint inhibitors may boost the immune system’s ability to destroy cancer cells.  Examples of these drugs target CTLA4 or PD-1 and have recently been shown to cause shrinkage in other cancer types such as melanoma, as well as having some activity in patients with ovarian cancer.

Cancer vaccines are another type of immunotherapy currently being tested for ovarian cancer.  In addition, some approaches called “adoptive cell therapy” take killer T cells found as part of the immune system in an individual patient and grow them in the laboratory, train them to attack certain targets such as MUC 16 (CA125) that is found on any ovarian cancer cells, and them give them back intravenously to the patient.  This approach has been tried in patients with hematologic cancers using other targets with some early success, and clinical trials are now opening for ovarian cancer.  Learn more about the basics of immunotherapy.

Hormone Therapy For Ovarian Cancer

Research is underway about the role of estrogen, androgens, and other hormones in ovarian cancer treatment. For treatment of recurrent or later-stage ovarian cancer,  the use of tamoxifen (Nolvadex, Soltamax), aromatase inhibitors, and enzalutamide (Xtandi), a blocker of the androgen receptor, is being considered.

Gene Therapy For Ovarian Cancer

One new area of research is discovering how damaged genes in ovarian cancer cells can be corrected or replaced. Researchers are studying the use of specially designed viruses that carry normal genes into the core of cancer cells and then replace the defective genes with the functional ones.

Supportive Care For Ovarian Cancer

Clinical trials are underway to find better ways of reducing symptoms and side effects of current ovarian cancer treatments, in order to improve a woman’s comfort and quality of life.

We will continue to search the net for ovarian cancer  information to help our clients. Our goal is to offer information that may help

 

Talcum Powder – Ovarian Cancer Link Alert

Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline  alerts women who didn’t know of the possible link between   Talcum powder product use  on the pelvic area and ovarian cancer. Talcum powder lawyers claim that if talcum powder is used for years the particles can travel to the fallopian tubes and the ovaries. They can stay there for years and cause irritation which eventually can result in cancer cells. Ovarian cancer rates are highest in women aged 55-64 years. This is the exact age group that Talcum powder was marketed to when they were  teenagers and young women.

Johnson & Johnson is now  facing more than 1,000 lawsuits from women claiming they  knew that the talc in its Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products was linked to ovarian cancer when used in the genital area. They did not warn anyone of this. Both products were marketed extensively  for feminine hygiene. . A 1988 ad for Shower to Shower said “just a sprinkle a day keeps odor away.” Others told women: “Your body perspires in more places than just under your arms.”

Is Talcum Powder  Johnson and Johnson’s next horror for women?  1000’s of women are still suffering from their vaginal mesh products. The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline receives dozens of calls every day from women who feel their ovarian cancer is from use of these Talcum Powder products. Juries have started to award female victims and families who have lost loved ones compensation.

What Are The Symptoms Of Ovarian Cancer?

Pain in the pelvis or abdomen
Bloating in the abdomen
Urinary urgency
Urinary frequency
Constipation or diarrhea
Feeling full quickly while eating
Having difficulty eating
Vaginal bleeding or other discharge that is different than normal
Back pain
If you have any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor.

What Is Talcum Powder?

Talcum powder is made from talc or   hydrated magnesium silicate which occurs naturally as a mineral in formations like soapstone. For over 120 years, Johnson & Johnson has marketed talcum powder around the world as a baby powder and for adults to absorb sweat in products like Shower to Shower.

Johnson and Johnson has  targeted women to increase sales. “Want to feel cool, smooth and dry? It’s as easy as taking powder from a baby,” was the text in a  Johnson & Johnson ad from the 1960s.

In the 1970s, the first studies emerged showing that talc was deeply embedded into ovarian cancers. Johnson & Johnson introduced corn starch alternatives but it continued to offer talc-based products. In 2014 Johnson & Johnson’s annual talcum powder sales were estimated at $374 million.

The Research Is In On Talcum Powder

The World Health Organization reports that talc is “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” Talc is banned in Europe.

If you believe your diagnosis of ovarian cancer is due to use of Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower To Shower speak to one of our Talcum powder lawyers.
