What is MK-2866?
MK-2866, also known as Ostarine, is essentially a SARM (selective androgen receptor modulor) developed for the prevention of muscle wasting diseases. Ostarine is primarily used as a performance enhancing drug for gaining muscle, as its main benefit is assisting with lean muscle gains. However, despite these benefits, Ostarine MK-2866 has been linked to a host of severe, potentially life-threatening side effects.
According to the FDA Warning Letter, Ostarine MK2866 contains the following ingredients:
What are SARMs?
Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators, or SARMs, are a class of therapeutic compounds which have similar properties to anabolic agents, but with reduced androgenic properties, according to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). SARMs have been prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) since 2008 due to their “potential to be misused for performance enhancement in sport due to their anabolic properties as well as ability to stimulate androgen receptors in muscle and bone.”
FDA Warning on SARMs
On Oct. 23, 2017, FDA sent Panther Labs a Warning Letter stating that Ostarine 2866 and another SARM-containing product known as “LGD Max” were in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) due to the SARMs risk of “life threatening reactions, including liver toxicity.”
SARMs Side Effects
- Liver damage
- Cardiovascular complications
- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Deep vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
Can I Participate in a Class Action?
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Pharmaceutical Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a SARMs Ostarine class action suit and is currently filing individual claims for individuals and/or their family members who had severe injuries or died after using the product.
We decided on this course of action because class action suits can be a detriment to many class members in this type of litigation, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Ostarine lawsuits on their behalf.
Do I Have a Ostarine Class Action Lawsuit?
The Class Action Litigation Group at our law firm is an experienced team of trial lawyers that focus on the representation of plaintiffs in SARMs lawsuits. We are handling individual litigation nationwide and currently accepting new injury and death cases in all 50 states.
Free Case Evaluation: Again, if you had a heart attack, stroke, blood clot, or other serious health problem after taking SARMs, you should contact our law firm immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a suit and our lawyers can help.
