The Silent Killer : No Compensation for Those Who Took NDMA-Contamination Drugs
Are You Taking Zantac? Have You Been Diagnosed with Cancer? I totally agree that patients who have taken Zantac or other potentially NDMA-contaminated drugs and been diagnosed with cancer deserve justice and financial compensation for sure.
Millions of people’s health are at risk for taking the cancer-causing chemical, NDMA. It’s a fact that NDMA is proven to be a genotoxin that causes kidney failure and cancer. The drug manufacturers should be accountable for their fault as their medications endanger countless patient’s health and life.
Potential compensation can include a monetary settlement for medical expenses and unemployment because of cancer, etc.Relevant post: Valsartan Recall Class Action Lawsuit Filed Over NDMA Contamination
What is NDMA?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is classified as probably carcinogenic to humans. Under the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of theNDMA and NDEA are classified as Group 2A substances. (Reference)
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, NDMA is a cancer-causing chemical, which is classified as a probable carcinogen. In an interview with ABC News, Dr. William Mitch, a professor of civil and environmental engineering and wastewater expert at Stanford University, asserts that NDMA acts as a carcinogen because it “modifies ” our DNA. A customer service specialist at Sandoz stated, “NDMA has been shown to increase cancer risk in animal experiments”
NDMA is very harmful to the liver of animals and humans.(Reference: Public Health Statement for n-Nitrosodimethylamine)
NDMA has been founded to increase the occurrence of cancer in animal studies and have been labeled as a “probably human carcinogen” in humans by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Based on results from laboratory tests, NDMA is classified as a substance that could cause cancer. What are the side effects of NDMA? The overexposure to NDMA may cause jaundice, nausea, fever, vomiting, abdominal cramps and dizziness. High levels of exposure could damage the function of kidney and lung.
There is conclusive evidence that NDMA is a potent carcinogen. NDMA has been
classified by IARC as probably carcinogenic to humans. The mechanism by which NDMA produces cancer is well understood to involve biotransformation by liver microsomal enzymes, generating the methyldiazonium ion. There is also ample evidence that NDMA is genotoxic both in vivo and in vitro.
NDMA consumption or dietary intake of NDMA is positively associated with either gastric or colorectal cancer.
Why is Zantac being taken off the market?
Because their products may contain small levels of nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a possible cancer-causing chemical linked to liver damage. (Reference: Drugstores are pulling Zantac-like heartburn drugs off the shelves over potential cancer risk)
Valsartan Lawsuits – Cancer from Contamination with NDMA
Valsartan, a blood pressure medication taken by millions of Americans, has been found to be contaminated with NDMA, a genotoxin that causes kidney failure and cancer.
I agree that victims who took Valsartan and were subsequently diagnosed with liver cancer, kidney cancer, stomach cancer, intestinal cancer, colon cancer or rectal cancer, are qualified to ask for compensation from the manufacturer.

Factories that make drugs abroad are subject to inspection by the FDA. They are required to inform regulators about changes in how they make the drug ingredients.
A drug recall removes a prescription or over-the-counter drug from the market. Class I recalls are the most severe and indicate that exposure and/or consumption of the drug will lead to detrimental health effects or death. Class II recalls refer to drugs that induce temporary and/or medically reversible health effects.
