On March 27, 2003, Lifecore announced it was voluntarily withdrawing Intergel from the market and suspending global sales to assess information obtained from post-marketing experience with the product.
Peterson & Associates, P.C. is investigating serious injuries that may have resulted from the use of Intergel.
Lifecore's marketing partner, Gynecare (a division of Johnson & Johnson), sent a letter to physicians dated March 28, 2003 stating they had received reports of problems including late-onset, post-operative pain and repeat surgeries following onset pain. The FDA reports 72 "adverse events," including 3 deaths and 48 injuries among U.S. patients treated with Intergel.
If Intergel was used in a gynecological surgery you've had, please consult your doctor and if adverse side effects have occurred, you may be entitled to compensation. Please contact us so we can discuss the details of your situation.
