Dallas attorney Kay Van Wey represents victims of those who took Zofran during pregnancy and gave birth to a baby with heart defects or cleft palate. She was featured recently on CBS explaining why the drug Zofran is so dangerous if taken while pregnant women. More than a dozen lawsuits across the country have been filed against GlaxoSmithKline because of birth defects and heart problems occurring in babies of mothers who took Zofran during their pregnancy. Zofran was approved for the treatment of nausea in patients who had received chemotherapy, or for nausea after surgery. For decades, Zofran has been given to pregnant women during the first trimester of pregnancy to combat nausea. However, Zofran was never approved by the FDA for this purpose. According to Kay, GlaxoSmithKline knew about the problem as early as 1992, received reports of birth defects, and continued to market the drug for morning sickness. “They never disclosed their animal studies or the adverse reports to the doctors or the patients,” says Van Wey. “In my view, this is a prime example of corporate greed.” If you or a loved one took Zofran during pregnancy and gave birth to a baby with heart defects or cleft palate defects contact Van Wey Law today to find out if you qualify for compensation.
