New Round of Personal Injury Lawsuits Filed Against Pfizer Over Undisclosed
Risks of Blockbuster Cholesterol Drug
RedNova Mon, 17 Jul 2006 11:10 AM PDT
NEW YORK, July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A new series of personal injury lawsuits
has been filed against Pfizer Inc, charging the giant drug company with
concealing serious and permanent health risks associated with the
blockbuster cholesterol drug Lipitor.

Excerpt:
"
Another plaintiff is Dennis Hickie, 52, vice president of a publiclytraded

company and a former professional soccer player in the

U.K., who took Lipitor to control his high cholesterol. A resident of

Long Island, NY, Mr. Hickie claims that, "the neuropathy and

myopathy caused by the lengthy exposure to Lipitor has created

such damage in my hands, elbows, shoulders, knees and ankles

that exercise is excruciatingly painful and impossible to carry out...

In reality, I have little strength for anything above opening an

envelope... As an ex-professional athlete, there is nothing more

soul destroying than NOT being able to enjoy all the benefits of

being in peak physical and mental condition."

New Round of Personal Injury Lawsuits Filed Against Pfizer Over
Undisclosed




You recently stated:

"A recently published medical journal article showed 100% of statin
patients have muscle damage identifiable on muscle biopsy after only a few
months.

Another recently published study showed all statin patients have measurable
cognitive impacts after 6 months.

Another recently published study showed neuropathy 26 times more likely in
statin patients."



Could you please supply links for these three statements?

Thank you.

I was hoping to get a reply but in the absence of one I suspect she was
just making stuff up (which she has been known to do in the past).

I'm still particularly interested in her source for this statement:

"A recently published medical journal article showed 100% of statin
patients have muscle damage identifiable on muscle biopsy after only a
few months."
