ZINBRYTA LAWSUITS

Zinbryta is a drug used to treat patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system that disrupts connections between the brain and the body. The drug’s manufacturers, AbbVie and Biogen Inc., have voluntarily removed Zinbryta from global markets as a result of reports that Zinbryta may cause inflammatory brain disease.

What is Zinbryta?

Zinbryta is a humanized monoclonal antibody that is self-administered as an injection for the treatment of MS. MS causes a variety of debilitating neurological symptoms that can range in severity. Zinbryta treats relapsing forms of MS by halting the production of T-cells and inflammatory-producing tissues and generating cells that assist in regulating the body’s immune system. It is typically prescribed to patients who have not had successful interactions with other MS medications. Zinbryta has been part of a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy program based on reports that Zinbryta may cause serious liver damage.

What is Happening with Zinbryta?

In March, 2018, the manufacturers of Zinbryta announced a voluntary worldwide recall of the drug citing uncertainty about the risk of brain inflammation reported by users. There have been three reported cases of encephalitis by patients taking Zinbryta in the United States. Inflammatory brain diseases, such as encephalitis, can cause seizures, memory problems, confusion and in some cases, death.

The announcement coincided with reports that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) is reviewing Zinbryta. The EMA advised a recall and complete suspension of Zinbryta after receiving 12 reports of inflammatory brain disease, including encephalitis and meningoencephalitis, in Zinbryta users worldwide. In three of those cases, the patients died.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating whether brain inflammation is a side effect of Zinbryta or is linked to another cause. Meanwhile, the FDA is collaborating with the drug’s manufacturers to execute the recall and informing health care professionals about the need to seek alternative treatment options for their patients.
