January 2015 Update: More than 620 men have filed testosterone lawsuits against the makers of Androgel, Axiron, and other testosterone gels. The lawsuits have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation in the Northern District of Illinois (In re: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2545 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.) Judge Matthew F. Kennelly will preside over the pretrial proceedings. The first lawsuits were filed just four days after the FDA announced it would be re-examining the safety of testosterone replacement drugs.
The lawsuits consolidated into the Illinois MDL pertain to the cardiovascular side effects, including heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, and deep vein thrombosis.
