• Round Up Weed Medical Record Review for Lawsuit Settlements | Neural IT

Roundup, one of the most common and widely used weed killer, contains Glyphosate as one of its main ingredients. Glyphosate is a systemic and broad spectrum herbicide which was patented by a U.S. company, Monsanto, in 1970. The chemical name of glyphosate is N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine, and it blocks an enzyme in the plant which is needed for preparing amino acids and proteins, thus, killing the plants within a few days.

After the patent for Monsanto expired in the U.S. in 2000 and outside the U.S. in 1991, many other manufacturers started marketing their own glyphosate products leading to a substantial increase in the sales and global usage.

Since 2013, there was an awareness created about Roundup that it may be connected to some serious medical conditions. This was confirmed in March 2015, when World Health Organization (WHO) announced that there was a probable link between glyphosate and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other forms of cancer. It is believed that the manufacturer knew about this linkage and covered its tracks unofficially.

Serious Alleged Injuries may include:

  • Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Leukemia
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Other Cancers or Illnesses

Government Regulations

  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, (EPA), reviewed glyphosate as non-carcinogenic in 1993. Later, in 2016, it initiated another review to check glyphosate's toxicity and arrived at the same conclusion.
  • Contradictory to this, in March 2016, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published a report classifying glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic in humans" (category 2A).
  • California Environmental Protection Agency has added Glyphosate to its Proposition 65 list of carcinogenic chemicals.

Legal Updates:

As the news of the cancer link spread among glyphosate users, many farmers, gardeners, landscapers, etc., basically people who were affected by the so-called herbicide came forward and filed lawsuits claiming they developed cancer because of Roundup.

All these cases have become a part of a Multi-District Litigation MDL No. 2741 (In re: Roundup Products liability litigation) to be overseen by U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in the Northern District of California. Trials are likely to begin early 2018.


  • Extent of exposure to Roundup herbicide, such as farm laborer/gardener.
  • Details for Roundup herbicide usage, duration and type of contact.
  • Health complications/injuries in medical records
  • Severity and Treatment for complications/injuries in medical records
  • Linkage of complications/injuries and Roundup usage

Medical Record Review and claim validation of Roundup case should take approximately 3 hours in most instances; however, this approximation may vary in cases based on the volume of records.
