Long-Term Use of PPIs Could Lead to Significant Kidney Injuries
Millions of Americans who experience symptoms associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), are prescribed PPIs, including Nexium, to alleviate those symptoms. According to a lawsuit filed in October 2016, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals concealed and continued to conceal their knowledge of the the unreasonably dangerous risks associated with Nexium and other PPIs from the plaintiff, other consumers and the medical community.
Research as early as 1992 has described a possible connection between the use of Nexium and kidney injuries, such as acute interstitial nephritis chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. Lawsuits allege that, as a result of the defective nature of the medications, people who use PPIs have been exposed to significant risks potentially caused by long-term use of PPIs.
