Get Compensation For The Damage Ketek Did To Your Health

Ketek (telithromycin), manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2004. It is an antibiotic used to treat respiratory and sinus infections. Numerous reports of serious and fatal complications followed. In 2007, the FDA reduced the approved uses of Ketek to one: treatment of certain types of pneumonia.

Some patients who took Ketek suffered hepatitis or severe liver damage resulting in liver failure and the need for a liver transplant. In the worst cases, the liver failure was fatal.
