Apparent Link Between Prescription Acne Drug and Ulcerative Colitis

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 2-Feb-2011

Reports say a recent article in the American Journal of Gastroenterology found a link between the use of Isotretinoin - which is the generic term for Accutane -- and Ulcerative Colitis, a disease that causes ulcers in the colon and/or large intestines.

Accutane, an acne drug, is also alleged to cause Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The forms of IBD include Crohn's Disease, Collageneous Colitis, Lymphocytic Colitis, Ischaemic Colitis, Diversion Colitis, Indeterminate Colitis and Behcet's Syndrome.

Medical patients enough problems without adding to the risk of drug side effects. Of course, some of the risks are known.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
