S2E1- Toxic Hip Implants (Dirty Secrets of Health Industry)

November 28, 2018 @ 8:03 pm

In this first episode of Season-2, i have brought out and highlighted the case of Cobalt toxicity that was caused by Hip implants from JnJ/ DePuy. The case highlighted flaws in device approval and research systems where a device that was toxic was allowed in the market for several years before being finally recalled by the company.

At the same time, "even as one metal-on-metal hip implant was being recalled and cases against it were being settled, the same company, DePuy, was marketing another prosthetic hip, the Pinnacle (Ultamet), with the same metal-on-metal design."

In 2018, Times of India reported that JnJ was ordered to pay INR 20 Lakhs/ patient.
