What are the alleged cancer-causing dangers of Zantac® (aka ranitidine®)
Glaxo Holdings Ltd® (now known as GSK® or GlaxoSmithKline®) invented Zantac® and began selling it in 1983 as a drug that reduces acid produced by stomach cells.
While Zantac® has been marketed for long-term maintenance use, it was first approved for short-term use only by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA)--the reason being primarily for its potential to cause cancer in long-term use.
Since over-the-counter Zantac and ranitidine contain high levels of NDMA, it may be linked to several types of cancers, including:
- Stomach cancer. Also known as gastric cancer, this type of cancer forms over the course of many years. The five-year survival rate for individuals diagnosed with stomach cancer is 70%.
- Esophageal cancer. This is more common in men and can cause difficulty swallowing, chest pain, and heartburn, which may lure victims into taking more to reduce the symptoms.
- Liver cancer. Patients diagnosed with liver cancer may suffer from abdominal pain, swelling in the abdomen and general loss of energy.
- Pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is so deadly because it’s often not diagnosed until the later stages, with the appearance of common symptoms that include itchy skin, yellowing of the eyes, and abdominal pain
Earlier reports and statistics highlight the dangers of conditions resulting from Zantac® (aka ranitidine®) use
The Very Well Health website reveals that since 1983, the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) has received a total of 73,240 cases with a negative effect of Zantac®.
- 55,891 serious cases
- 4,926 deaths
- 66% of cases were linked to cancer
18,739,686 people in the United States were prescribed Zantac® in 2018–with 1,094 cases involving Zantac® reported to the FDA in the same year.
USA Today reports that a 2016 Stanford University research study indicated that urine samples of 10 people who took a 150-milligram tablet of Zantac® and found NDMA (a known carcinogen) levels far greater than the FDA's daily limits.
Wired reveals that a 2020 study showed the Food and Drug Administration announced voluntary recalls of prescription forms of ranitidine® by two generic drug companies–Appco Pharma® and Northwind Pharmaceuticals®–bringing the total number of ranitidine® recalls to 14 in the past five months.
We believe that these victims should get the compensation and justice they deserve by addressing the makers of Zantac® in a court of law.
