Beovu Blindness Attorney
Beovu (brolucizumab) is a medication that is injected into the eyes to treat wet age-related macular degeneration, which is a kind of macular degeneration that affects the eyes (wet AMD). Only nine months after the FDA authorized Beovu injections, it was revealed that the drug led some patients to develop retinal vasculitis, a rare and deadly inflammatory illness in their eyes. People who got this severe retina disease as a response to the Beovu injection have had catastrophic vision loss and blindness because of the injection.
Beovu was advertised as a treatment for wet AMD, one of the most common causes of vision loss. However, we now know that this medicine can increase vision problems. Some people who had Beovu injections will be blind for the rest of their lives because the manufacturer failed to adequately warn people of its problems.
Before the FDA issued additional warnings concerning blindness and vison loss in June 2020, almost 50,000 people had received Beovu injections. You may be entitled to file a Beovu lawsuit if you used this medicine before June 10, 2020, and now have retinal vascular occlusion, retinal vasculitis, or other vision issues.
What Are the Cases Against Beovu About?
Beovu is suspected of causing blindness. If the wounds occurred before June 2020, the patient has strong claims against Novartis for failure to warn about this serious complication. Our law firm is actively investigating new claims from people who have lost vision because of a Beovu eye injection.
Did Novartis Warn Patients of Blindness from Beovu?
There was no warning regarding these significant side effects when Beovu was initially authorized by the FDA. Instead, Novartis promoted the proven safety of their Beovu injections. But reports of patients suffering very significant adverse reactions to Beovu began to flood the FDA (and other agencies) within a few months after the drug’s original distribution. The Beovu injections were causing a severe inflammatory reaction in the retina in patients.
Patients who had retinal vasculitis or retinal vascular occlusion as a result of their response to Beovu were eventually identified. Retinal vasculitis and retinal vascular occlusion are rare but dangerous conditions in which blood flow to the eyes is reduced. Both disorders lead to complete blindness or permanent visual loss.
Join a Lawsuit for Beovu Eye Damage
When Novartis first put Beovu on the market, it didn’t include any information concerning the risk of retinal vasculitis or retinal vascular occlusion on the warning label. This indicates Novartis might be held accountable for any damage inflicted by the drug’s previously unknown adverse effects before the warning label was updated.
Following these discoveries, a surge of Beovu lawsuits against Novartis is inevitable. Anyone who took Beovu shots and then developed visual problems, blindness, or other side effects can file a case against Novartis. Beovu-related injuries and responses might include the following.
