Proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs such as Nexium have been recently shown to cause bone decalcification, which over time can lead to bone fractures. This decrease in bone density has been compared to moderate to severe osteoporosis, a health threatening condition that leaves bones brittle and frail. Fractures of the pelvis, or hip, can pose a serious health problem to those of any age group. More vulnerable to the dangers of these fractures, however, are the elderly. Reports suggest that one in five seniors who suffer a pelvic fracture can die within one year of the injury.

Hip Fracture Warning


Starting in May of 2010, the Federal Drug Administration began to order manufacturers of proton-pump inhibitor drugs to provide more detailed information about potential side effects they may cause. One such warning that AstraZeneca, the makers of Nexium, was instructed to warn consumers about is the risk of possible hip fractures due to long term PPI use.


The dangers of proton-pump inhibitor drugs in one British study showed that people who took acid reducing drugs increased their risk of hip fractures by 44%


It is due to this failure to warn, also known as a marketing defect, that victims of Nexium hip fractures can now be heard. Companies are required by Federal law to provide adequate warning information on products they market to consumers. When companies fail to warn of such dangers, they can be held liable for the damages that their drugs cause. Victims can seek compensation for medical bills, pain, suffering, and other expenses caused by taking these dangerous drugs.
