Avandia (the trade name for Rosiglitazone, marketed by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)), is a drug approved in 1999 for treatment of type 2 diabetes. The product was used extensively until 2007, when a report in the New England Journal of Medicine linked it with studies showing an increased risk of heart attack. The patent on the drug expired in 2012.
In addition to heart disease, Avandia has been linked to numerous other health concerns, including:
There’s evidence that GSK knew of the heart attack risks and covered up what they knew. There’s also evidence that the company threatened researchers who reported any adverse health effects tied to the drug.
