Plaintiff Claims to Have Lost Significant Function of Kidneys
AstraZeneca, the manufacturer of Nexium, is accused of knowing about and concealing the risk of serious kidney complications associated with the popular reflux medication. According to a lawsuit filed in January 2017, the plaintiff in the case was diagnosed with severe chronic kidney disease after using Nexium for almost 10 years as prescribed to treat certain peptic disorders.
Nexium, along with other proton pump inhibitors, has been allegedly associated with other serious kidney complications as well, including acute interstitial nephritis, acute kidney injury and renal failure. The lawsuit alleges that since the introduction of Nexium in the United States, hundreds of reports of injury have been submitted to the FDA, including reports of severe kidney injuries. As a result of using Nexium, the plaintiff claims to have lost significant function of her kidneys, requiring hospitalization and lifelong treatment for her injuries.
