Have you used recalled Zantac, Ranitidine, Valsartan or Metformin and recently
been diagnosed with a brain cancer or tumor? You can contact our firm
and ask questions about this very new medical development and learn about your
potential rights. The online Valisure Pharmacy, with Stanford University, published a major
report on the cancers associated with Zantac and oncologist Dr. Lior Braunstein
studies Zantac use and cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
The leading cause of the recall was the carcinogen N-Nitrosodimethylamine
(NDMA) being found within the drugs, or created by digestive actions.
NDMA is a known carcinogen which has strict limits for daily intake. NDMA
is “genotoxic,” meaning that enters cellular DNA and can cause
immediate cancerous growth. At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP,
our New York defective drug lawyers handle cases directly and do not refer
them to other firms.

N-NITROSODIMETHYLAMINE (NDMA) CROSSES THE BLOOD/BRAIN BARRIER RAISING CARCINOGEN CONCERN
Repeated medical studies have shown that N-nitroso compounds have been
clearly identified as carcinogens which can cause central nervous system
and brain tumors. NDMA is a small particle and passes through the blood/brain
barrier. Scientific investigations reveal that endothelial cells of the
blood/brain barrier are large enough to let the small NDMA molecules pass
through and expose the brain to DNA damage by N-nitroso compounds which
are found in Zantac, Ranitidine, Valsartan or Metformin.[i]
Common brain cancers may include:
The exact causes are known, but some forms have been related to chemical
and industrial exposure. The chemicals in industrial exposure can be similar
to N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which was invented as rocket fuel.[ii]
