Attorneys To Select List of C8 Lawsuit Claims For Possible Submission in C8 Bellwether Trials

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 06, 2014

Attorneys representing clients along the Ohio River in the vicinity of the DuPont Washington Works Plant in Parkersburg W. Virginia in C8 lawsuits that allege their clients contracted illnesses including kidney disease and thyroid cancer purportedly from C8 tainted drinking water are in the process of selecting 20 lawsuits from the C8 litigation that is currently underway in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Ohio. (In Re: E.I. DuPont De Nemours and Company C-8 Personal Injury Litigation, MDL No. 2433)

Court records indicate that attorneys in the C8 litigation involving DuPont must produce complaints that they would like included in the C8 lawsuit bellwether trials. A meeting to narrow the number of cases selected for the bellwether trial down to six cases is scheduled for September 6th. Attorney Richard W. Schulte, a partner with Wright & Schulte LLC is on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the federal C8 litigation. Wright & Schulte LLC is also representing clients who have filed C8 lawsuits.

Wright & Schulte LLC further notes there are nearly 1,500 C8 lawsuit claims (MDL No. 2433) pending litigation that allege plaintiffs or their loved ones became ill or even died after being exposed to drinking water contaminated with C8, a toxic chemical discharged from DuPonts Washington Works Plant in Parkersburg, West Virginia.

According to court documents, plaintiffs in the C8 lawsuit claims either worked or lived in the area of DuPonts Washington Works plant in Parkersburg, West Virginia and developed severe illnesses, such as kidney, testicular cancers and thyroid disease purportedly as a result of drinking contaminated drinking water.

In a previous C8 class action lawsuit filed against DuPont over C8 contamination a settlement agreement was reached with 70,000 people who lived and worked in the vicinity of the plant. As part of the settlement, a C8 Science Panel was created and charged with investigating potential links between C8 exposure and serious illnesses. According to the settlement agreement, if the C8 Science Panel ultimately determined that there were any links between the illnesses and C8, Mid-Ohio Valley residents and workers who were exposed to C8 contaminated water could file individual personal injury lawsuits against DuPont if they suffered from any of the illnesses identified by the panel. (Leach v. E.I. Du Pont De Nemours & Co., No. 01-C-608 (W. Va. Cir. Ct.))

The C8 Science Panel concluded in 2012, that there were probable links between exposure to C8 contaminated drinking water and illnesses that include:

kidney cancer
high cholesterol
inflammatory bowel disease
testicular cancer
pregnancy-induced hypertension (pre-eclampsia)
thyroid disease.
[; C8 Science Panel, October 2012]

As a result, individuals could file C8 lawsuits against DuPont if they lived or worked in one of the following six water districts in Ohio and West Virginia:

City of Belpre in Washington County, Ohio
Eastern Meigs County, Ohio
Village of Pomeroy, Ohio
Lubeck Public Service District, West Virginia
Mason County Public Service District, West Virginia

Turn Off the TV and Start Moving

Suffern, N.Y. (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

Recent research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association finds that adults who watch TV three hours or more a day may double their risk of premature death from any cause. According to Dr. Sherrita Bhagan-Bruno, M.D., F.A.C.C. of ColumbiaDoctors of the Hudson Valley, sedentary behavior is an increasing trend. She recommends adults turn off the TV and start moving.

As we age, we lose muscle mass and strength. This process is accelerated in persons who are not physically active. Dr. Bhagan-Bruno advises her patients that physical activity keeps us healthier and living longer, while decreasing the risks of diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and dementia, to name a few. Dr. Bhagan-Bruno says, Any activity is better than none. It is also never too late to become physically active (even at the age of 85). The more active you are, the greater the benefit.

Dr. Bhagan-Bruno says its not necessary to get a stress test before beginning an exercise program, although stress testing may be recommended if you have been sedentary and want to begin a rigorous exercise program. Having said that, she advises it is always better to start an exercise program gradually and intensify as your body adapts to the new demands.

Dr. Bhagan-Bruno offers the following guidelines for a physical activity program. Exercise can be broken down into: 1) aerobic activity, 2) muscle strengthening, 3) flexibility, and 4) balance.

A Dream Team in Diabetes Research Made Possible by Fraternal Order Of Eagles (FOE)

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

One significant ray of hope for the millions suffering from the global pandemic of diabetes is coming from Americas heartland. Over the last two years, a dream team of diverse and talented scientists has been assembled at the University of Iowas Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center (FOEDRC) in collaboration to find new keys to preventing and curing this devastating disease.

The community service organization Fraternal Order of Eagles (FOE) presented a $ 6 million donation to the University of Iowa at its national convention on Sunday, July 13, in Orlando, FL. The check fulfills a $ 25 million commitment made in 2008. Founded in 1898, the Eagles fund research in areas such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease and cancer, and raise money for neglected and abused children and the aged, as well as work for social and civic change.

E. Dale Abel, MBBS, DPhil (MD, PhD) and FOEDRC Director, believes the institution is uniquely positioned to make significant advances within the next decade. The fact that we have tremendous resources that came about because of the support of the Fraternal Order of Eagles has created the opportunity for our scientists to be as creative as possible, explains Dr. Abel. We are able to invest our time and efforts in important experiments which initially might be very difficult to get funding from more traditional sources. Just like in the stock market, sometimes you have to take a bit of a risk to get a high reward.

Here are just a few examples of some of the promising research currently ongoing at the FOEDRC and that will be housed in the soon to be opened state of the art FOEDRC research facility at the University of Iowa:

Helping people with diabetes increase their metabolism to burn off fat and lose weight can lead to improvement in their diabetes control. Dr. Chris Adams has identified some new compounds and drugs from natural products such as apple peels that can increase muscle metabolism.

Dr. Vitor Lira is also working on muscle metabolism and is studying how muscle responds to exercise in ways that prevent certain diabetic complications in the heart. His research aims to come up with new ways to prevent heart muscle damage even in people who are not able to exercise very well.

One of the major problems in diabetes is that the liver overproduces glucose. Dr. Eric Taylor is studying how the liver makes glucose and has identified a new protein that actually regulates this process. The ability to block that protein represents a new treatment for reducing blood sugar in people with diabetes.

People with diabetes have worse cholesterol levels and fats in the blood and is one of the reasons why they have more heart attacks. Dr. Brandon Davies studies the way that abnormal fats and cholesterol enter the blood stream. Based on his work, we may have new ways to lower fat accumulation that causes many of the complications of diabetes.

Dr. Matthew Potthoff is studying a new hormone called FGF-21, which may be more potent than insulin in terms of improving blood glucose and metabolism. It is very likely that this will ultimately become a new and important treatment for diabetes.

Dr Julien Sebag has figured out a new pathway in the brain that regulates appetite. He is also coming up with designer drugs targeting specific parts of the brain to reduce appetite without side effects affecting mood and energy. His work may lead to new and safer treatments to promote weight loss, a key to treating and preventing diabetes.

Dr. Ling Yang studies how diabetes causes liver damage. It turns out that the increase in diabetes in the world is causing a corresponding increase in liver damage and liver cancer. She is figuring out why that happens and how we can take preventive measures.

Dr. James Ankrum is a bioengineer who has designed microscopic nano particles capable of delivering drugs to beta cells that can be transplanted into the body without rejection by the immune system. These cells can then restore pancreatic function for longer periods of time than what is currently possible. Dr. Ankrum is also well known for inventing a painless hypodermic needle inspired by the structure of porcupine quills.

Dr Abels own group is studying why people with diabetes are at greater risk for heart failure. They are investigating why high levels of insulin in people with insulin resistance might be damaging to the heart, exploring how to reduce that damage but at the same time maintaining peoples diabetes control.

Other groups in the FOEDRC working across the University of Iowa campus are studying new treatments to prevent diabetic nerve damage, new ways to detect early diabetic eye disease, better ways to treat and prevent high blood pressure in diabetics and testing new pumps and sensors for kids and adults with Type 1 diabetes that can automatically measure blood sugar levels and adjust insulin doses 24 hours per day.
