NEW YORK, NY — As Eli Lily has recently reached a global settlement over their drug Axiron, other companies that provide low testosterone drugs for treatment are facing similar lawsuits. Bio-T-Gel’s parent company Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, could soon be facing similar accusations of life-threatening complications with these ‘Low T’ drugs.

Although the details of the Eli Lily settlement have not been released, the compensation in these testosterone lawsuits is expected to be very high, and you are still eligible for compensation if you feel you were harmed by a testosterone drug such as Bio-T-Gel.

What is Bio-T-Gel

Bio-T-Gel is a testosterone drug produced and distributed by Teva Pharmaceuticals. It is a gel substance that contains a reservoir of testosterone and is topically applied to the skin. Recently, the testosterone lawsuits identify this type of testosterone therapy as a risky health decision.

What are Serious Complications of Bio-T-Gel?

Recent medical studies have identified a number of potential risks and complications associated with testosterone replacement therapy drugs such as Bio-T-Gel including:

Does Bio-T-Gel Cause Heart Attacks and Strokes?

Testosterone replacement therapy drugs may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke according to medical studies. Lawsuits involving Low T therapy drugs cite that the plaintiffs had heart attacks, strokes, and other serious medical issues. In cases in which the plaintiffs could not prove their medical complications were caused by the testosterone drug in question, some were able to receive a settlement based on the fact the company did not properly communicate the risks associated with the drug.

What Other Testosterone Lawsuits Have Been Settled?

At its peak, the testosterone multidistrict litigation included 7,513 lawsuits, and today, there remain over 6,000 lawsuits pending.

Like Eli Lilly, several other testosterone drug manufacturers have found themselves paying large sums to compensate for the harm their drugs caused patients.

AbbVie has undergone two bellwether trials thus far, one of which ended in a verdict ordering the company to pay $140 million to a man who suffered a heart attack after using Androgel.

In the second Androgel trial, the jury initially ordered AbbVie to pay $150 million to the plaintiff. The verdict was subsequently overturned, but only because the jury had required AbbVie to pay punitive damages but had no included compensatory damages.

In both cases, the juries ruled that AbbVie had downplayed the drug’s serious risks in their marketing efforts.

Auxilium has also faced litigation over its testosterone drug, Testim. Not long after the Axiron settlement, Auxilium settled their case in January 2018 with a plaintiff who suffered a stroke after using Testim.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Testosterone Lawsuit?

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) products for men have been linked to an increased risk of death, heart attack and stroke.

Testosterone therapy, such as the prescription topical treatments AndrogelTestim, and Bio-T-Gel, are used to help boost testosterone levels in men who have a deficiency of the male hormone. Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased libido and low energy.

Researchers found men who used testosterone therapy were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or die after three years of use.

A second study found that men had a significant increase in the risk of heart attack and stroke in just the first 90 days of testosterone therapy use. Furthermore, men who started the study with clear, unobstructed coronary arteries were just as likely to have a heart attack, stroke or die as men who entered the study with established coronary artery disease.

The following criteria must be met for a patient to file a testosterone lawsuit:

  • Must be male
  • Must have used name-brand TRT only, no shots
  • Must have had one of the following injuries:
    • Heart attack
    • Myocardial infarction
    • Blood clot
    • Stroke
    • Sudden cardiac death
    • Pulmonary embolism
    • Deep vein thrombosis
    • Cardiogenic embolism
    • Blindness caused by blood clot to the eye
    • Other injury caused by a blood clot
  • If injury occurred while patient was taking TRT, must have been taking TRT for at least one month when the injury occurred
  • If injury occurred after patient stopped taking TRT, must be no more than 30 days since discontinuation of TRT when injury occurred
