Zofran Lawsuits

ZOFRAN LAWSUITS

In 1991, the FDA (Food and drug administration) approved the usage of Zofran which is a vomiting and anti-nausea drug. The approved and intended use was for the post-operative care of cancer patients who experienced severe nausea as a result of radiation therapy as well as operative procedures. In addition to these uses, the manufacturers of Zofran marketed their dug to be used as an anti-nausea medication for pregnant women experiencing morning sickness. The FDA has never approved this alternative use. This unapproved usage resulted in many babies being born with serious congenital defects.





These congenital defects include:

  • Heart Defects (including Bicuspid Aortic Stenosis, Atrial Septal Defect, Supraventricular Tachycardia, Ventricular Septal Defects)
  • Cleft Palate
  • Low-set ears
  • Kidney Malformations
  • Ventricular Septal Defects
  • Facial Dysmorphia
