What is the problem that Ketek lawyers may help you pursue?

The ketolide antibiotic Ketek has been linked to hepatitis, liver damage resulting in liver transplants, and death.


Hepatitis is a gastroenterological disease known as inflammation of the liver. The clinical signs and prognosis, as well as the therapy, depend on the cause. Hepatitis is characterized by fatigue, malaise, joint aches, abdominal pain, vomiting two or three times a day for the first five days, loss of appetite, dark urine, fever, jaundice, and an enlarged liver. Some chronic forms of hepatitis show very few of these signs and only when the longstanding inflammation has led to the replacement of liver cells by connective tissue resulting in cirrhosis. Certain liver function tests can also indicate hepatitis.


Ketek has been linked to liver failure. Liver failure is categorized depending on the rapidity of onset. Acute liver failure develops rapidly, but chronic liver failure may take months or years to develop. By definition, liver failure occurs when the liver is so diseased and functioning so poorly, that brain damage is evident. Any progressive liver disease can result in liver failure; examples include: acetaminophen toxicity, cirrhosis, viral hepatitis, and metastatic cancer of the liver. Other signs of liver disease such as jaundice, ascites (excess fluid in the peritoneal cavity), fetor hepaticus (a sweetish odor associated with liver failure), and failure of coagulation indicate that the liver is having trouble performing its normal physiological duties, but it is not termed liver failure until the mental status changes appear.


Liver failure treatment involves correcting any underlying cause, if possible. Even when the cause is identified and treated, the progression to complete liver failure may be irreversible. In this case, steps are taken to slow down the decline of liver function. The patient's diet is restricted. Protein consumption is kept at optimal levels. If protein consumption is too high, it can cause brain dysfunction, but too little may cause weight loss. Alcohol must be completely avoided. Keeping sodium consumption down helps to prevent the accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. Liver dialysis is evolving as a treatment modality and is pending U.S. approval. Liver transplantation is the definitive treatment for liver failure, but is not an option for all patients and the supply of livers is severely limited. Some medication may be given to relieve the symptoms of liver failure.


Does it make sense to develop liver failure in order to cure bacterial pneumonia and sinus infections?


Have you taken Ketek and have been hospitalized with hepatitis? Have you or a family member faced liver failure or needed a liver transplant due to using Ketek?
