Europe to Review Testosterone Safety

Last week, the European Medicines Agency announced plans to investigate the safety of testosterone drugs. The announcement came in response to the recent study from PLoS One, which found an increase in the risk for heart attack following testosterone therapy. The Agency plans to review all available data on the benefits and risks of testosterone therapy and then issue an opinion on whether any changes should be made to their marketing authorizations.

The recent action taken by government agencies to investigate the safety of testosterone products has huge implications for consumers around the world. In the US, the FDA's investigation may result in a black box warning requirement for testosterone products. A black box warning would require drug companies to disclose information about the dangers of their products to consumers.

Consumers who have not received adequate information about the risks of testosterone drugs may have suffered serious injuries as a result. If you or a loved one has suffered a heart attack, stroke, or blood clot following testosterone use, contact Morelli Law Firm immediately.
