Parker & Waichman, LLP Believes Warning Issued by Johnson & Johnson About Ortho Evra Contraceptive Patch Health Risks is Insufficient -- JNJ
NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Parker & Waichman, LLP (http://www.yourlawyer.com), a leading pharmaceutical liability law firm, believes that the new warning issued by Ortho McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), about increased risks of blood clots associated with the Ortho Evra patch, is inadequate. Yesterday, Ortho McNeil warned that women who used the patch were exposed to up to 60% more estrogen than those taking birth control pills. It is believed that increased estrogen levels greatly increases the risk of blood clots, which can cause serious injury or death. With the availability of safer, alternative forms of contraception, Parker & Waichman, LLP believes that Ortho McNeil should immediately remove this product from the market.
