Accutane Lawsuit Funding

Generically known as Isotretinoin, this drug has been a popular anti-acne drug since it came on the market in 1982. It went “off-patent” in 2002 and has been available in generic prescription form under the following names: Amnesteem, Claravis, Decutan, Istane, Sotret, Ratane, RAccutane and the generic Isotretinoin. It was originally intended for the treatment of severe acne but many dermatologists prescribe the drug for off-label purposes.

Acne treatment was created by Hoffman La Roche, a United States drug manufacturer. It is a synthetic form of Vitamin A that is made to alleviate severe acne symptoms. The La Roche Group is a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer bringing in $1.2 billion annually just for sales of Accutane.

Serious side effects include:

  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Depression
  • Erectile dysfunction (difficulty in maintaining erection)
  • Violent behavior/aggression
  • Psychosis (seeing or hearing things that are not real)
  • Suicide attempts
  • Hearing impairment
  • Osteopenia/osteoporosis (loss in bone mass and strength/weak and fragile bones)
  • Hepatotoxicity (liver damage)
  • Anaphylaxis (rapid and deadly allergic reaction)
  • Major birth defects
  • Cataracts/corneal opacities (can cause a decrease in vision and lead to eventual blindness)
  • Agranulocytosis (low white blood cells)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Vascular thrombosis (heart attack)
  • Stroke
  • Seizures

Accutane Side Effects

Recent studies have linked Accutane (known generically as Isotretinoin), a popular acne medication, to serious and painful side effects and gastrointestinal problems such as inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).   IBD is often characterized by conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease and is associated with an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer. 

In addition, studies have suggested Accutane may cause serious mental health problems (such as depression, psychosis, and suicide), birth defects, miscarriages, premature births, and  Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (severe skin reaction which can sometimes be fatal).
Over 16 million people worldwide have used the drug since it was first approved by the FDA in 1982.  Accutane is used for the treatment of severe acne that is unresponsive to conventional therapy, including antibiotics.

On June 26, 2009, Hoffman-La Roche Pharmaceuticals voluntarily pulled the drug from the US market citing, among others reasons, the cost of defending against lawsuits.  Isotretinoin continues to be available as a generic and is also sold under a wide variety of names including Amnesteem, Claravis, and Sotret.
There are dozens of know side effects, the most serious of which are gastrointestinal problems like inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease. Here is a full list of known Accutane side effects.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

People suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) can experience the side effects many years after consuming the medication.  IBD is a general term that refers to a group of digestive disorders that can cause chronic inflammation or redness and swelling in the small and large intestines.  Symptoms often include abdominal pain and cramping, weight loss, poor appetite, fatigue, diarrhea (can be bloody), rectal bleeding, and fever.  Other IBD-related health problems may include: arthritis and joint pain, weak bones, and bone breaks, eye inflammation, liver inflammation, gallstones, skin ulcers or lesions, kidney stones, delayed puberty, and growth problems (in children and teens), and in rare cases, lung problems.

The two major types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis.  Although they share similar symptoms they differ in that they affect different parts of the digestive tract.

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

Crohn’s disease results in inflammation which usually affects all layers of the intestinal wall in the small and large intestines, as well as other digestive organs.  In contrast, ulcerative colitis results in inflammation and ulcers (sores) which usually affect the inner lining of the large intestine (colon) and rectum.  The big difference between the two being Crohn’s causes inflammation deeper within the intestinal wall whereas ulcerative colitis affects only the superficial top layer of the lining of the large intestine.  There is no cure for either disease and if drug therapy fails, which it often does, in treating these ailments then surgery is the only viable option.

Accutane FDA Black Box Warning

Isotretinoin was a pregnancy category X drug under the previous FDA system and is contraindicated in pregnant women or who may become pregnant. There have been severe, documented congenital disabilities when pregnant women have taken isotretinoin.

The FDA issued a web page warning in 2007 and required a Black Box Warning label since 2003.   It is the strongest warning that the FDA requires.  A black box warning indicates that studies have found that the drug carries a significant risk of serious or even life-threatening adverse effects. The FDA required Hoffman-La Roche to place a black box warning on the labeling and in the literature describing it to help patients avoid serious adverse events.  In addition, the FDA now has stricter rules regarding the dispensation of Accutane.

Latest Developments in the Accutane Lawsuit…

Roche has been on a legal roller coaster with its acne drug Accutane. Facing thousands of claims that the drug triggers inflammatory bowel disease, the Swiss drugmaker is now enjoying a high point, as an appeals court reversed a $25 million verdict against the company. In a lawsuit over a patient who developed Crohn's disease while taking the drug, a New Jersey appeals court ruled that the plaintiff, Andrew McCarrell, did not file his suit in time and that a lower court mistakenly applied New Jersey state law, rather than the law in McCarrell's home state of Alabama, the New Jersey Law Journal reports. The court used a precedent laid out in a 2012 Supreme Court ruling in favor of Johnson & Johnson, which dismissed a suit over a faulty stent after finding that lower courts applied the wrong state law. This is not the first time the court has overturned… Read more
New Jersey judge has rejected Roche’s request for a new trial or reduction of a jury’s award of more than $25 million in damages for a man who developed severe inflammatory bowel disease from Accutane. In an order issued last week, Judge Carol Higbee denied Roche’s request for a new trial or remittitur in a case brought by Andrew McCarrell, which was one of the first Accutane lawsuits in the United States to reach a jury. McCarrell’s Accutane bowel disease suit was originally filed in 2003 and first went to trial in April 2007, resulting in a jury award of $2,619,000. However, following an appeal the verdict was overturned and the case was remanded for a new trial so that Roche would be permitted to introduce evidence on the total number of Accutane uses. Following a second trial in January 2010, another New Jersey state court jury awarded McCarrell $159,540.19 to cover his medical… Read more
Hagens Berman LLP, a nationally recognized law firm today praised a jury's verdict that ordered pharmaceutical company Roche to pay $2 million to a woman who suffered serious gastrointestinal damage caused by the drug Accutane, while denying similar claims of actor James Marshall and another plaintiff. Accutane, along with its active ingredient, isotretinoin, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1982 to treat severe acne and became one of the biggest selling drugs for Roche with more than 16 million users. However, the drug's success has also been tainted by a history of more than 20 product-labeling modifications, FDA warning letters and litigation. The woman, Gillian Gaghan, took the drug and developed serious complications, including ulcerative colitis and lupus-like symptoms, and has lost nighttime bowel control, court records show. The seven-person jury concluded that the Swiss drug giant did not warn Gaghan of the risks associated with taking the drug, which led… Read more
A man who claimed that he developed severe bowel problems from Accutane, an acne medication, has reached a pre-trial settlement with Roche Laboratories, the drug’s manufacturer. Roche has asked Madison County Circuit Judge David Hylla to approve the Accutane settlement, according to a report in The Madison Record. The case, which was brought by plaintiff Jason Peipert, also involves a medical malpractice claim against an Illinois doctor, who may also be in settlement talks with the plaintiff. Peipert alleges that Dr. Daniel Goran prescribed him Accutane to treat his acne, and that the drug caused him to develop the debilitating condition, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The case was set to go to trial on April 19, but start of the trial was delayed due the potential settlement with Accutane manufacturers. Roche faces nearly 1,000 Accutane lawsuits, which involve allegations that the drug maker failed to adequately warn users about potential side effects of… Read more
A New Jersey jury has awarded $25.16 million in damages in an Accutane lawsuit, which alleged that the acne drug caused the plaintiff to develop inflammatory bowel disease. The verdict was handed down this week in a New Jersey Superior Court, following the retrial of a case brought by Andrew McCarrell, 38, of Birmingham, Alabama. McCarrell originally won a $2.62 million award against Roche in 2007, but the company got that verdict overturned and the case was sent back for a retrial. Roche faces nearly 1,000 lawsuits over Accutane, which has been associated with bowel problems, depression and birth defects. All of the lawsuits include allegations that Roche failed to adequately warn users about potential Accutane side effects. The company has lost all six cases that have gone to trial so far, with verdicts totaling $56 million, according to a report by Bloomberg News. One of those verdicts, with a… Read more
Accutane won't be sold any more, drug giant Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. has announced. Generic versions of the acne drug, called isotretinoin, are still available from several manufacturers. But Roche, which has sold the drug to 13 million patients since 1982, will not be one of them. The decision was made for "business reasons," Roche announced in a news release. Those reasons include declining sales: Accutane sales now make up less than 5% of the isotretinoin market. Another big reason: Accutane personal injury lawsuits, which Roche is aggressively defending. Accutane and other isotretinoin products are effective treatments for serious acne. But the drug can have extremely serious side effects: mental health problems — including depression, psychosis, and suicide — and, when taken by pregnant women, miscarriage or birth defects….
