In the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, where a Prozac birth defects lawsuit is being heard, Judge Lawrence K. Karlton ruled to maintain the plaintiff’s accusation of Eli Lilly’s Co.’s failure to warn. Furthermore, Judge Karlton found that the plaintiff’s additional claim that Prozac’s development betrayed Eli Lilly’s codes was sufficiently established, according to HarrisMartin. As such, evidence supporting these claims will be granted presentation in the court.
Carey Danis & Lowe Prozac lawyers believe that Judge Karlton’s decision to uphold the allegation of failure to warn is important. This means that the plaintiff has the opportunity to present a Prozac lawsuit in court that establishes Eli Lilly’s disregard for patient safety and neglectful business practices.
One of the most common Prozac birth defects is persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), a condition that affects normal lung function, resulting in a lack of properly oxygenated blood. In a study published by The New England Journal of Medicine in 2006, researchers found that the risk of PPHN increased six-fold in children whose mothers used a selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant, such as Prozac, during pregnancy.
