Lawsuit Alleges GBCAs Cause Disabling Injuries

  • gadolinium

In a complaint filed by Bobby Jo Robichaux in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, she suffered an allergic reaction in July 2018, after being injected with various gadolinium-based contrast agents during a lumbar spine MRI and CT scan of her abdomen and pelvis.

In her complaint, Robichaux named GE Healthcare, Bayer, Tyco Healthcare, Mallinckrodt, Inc., and Bracco Diagnostics as defendants who manufactures gadolinium-based contrast dyes such as Omniscan, Magnevist, Gadavist, MultiHance, Dotarem, ProHance, OptiMARK, Eovist, and Ablavar. The plaintiff was re-admitted to the hospital numerous times owing to the continued complications from the IV dye. The lawsuit stated, “upon information and belief, the GBCAs produced by Manufacturing Defendants and used by Petitioner is defective in its design or formulation in that it is not reasonably fit, suitable, or safe for its intended purpose and/or its foreseeable risks exceeded the benefits associated with its design and formulation.” The Louisiana woman claimed that she suffered severe, disabling and disfiguring injuries as side-effects of the IV injection.

The lawsuit filed by Robichaux will join the growing number of gadolinium contrast dye lawsuits filed in several state courts nationwide, and the litigation is expected to expand in the coming months.
