Wyeth v. Levine - Atty. Jamie Sheller on The American Law Journal
Diana Levine lost her hand to gangrene when she was injected with Phenergan, an anti-nausea drug made by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. She won a jury verdict in Vermont, under the notion that Wyeth had inadequately labeled the drug. If a drug meets the labeling requirements of the FDA, does that give rise to federal preemption of state law regarding inadequate labeling?

Gangrene: Types, Symptoms, and Diagnosis
Gangrene: Types, Symptoms, and Diagnosis What is gangrene? Gangrene is when part of your body tissue dies. This often occurs because the tissue is not getting enough blood from your circulatory system. Gangrene usually affects your extremities — the areas farthest from your heart, such as your toes and fingers. However, it can affect other parts of your body as well. Gangrene can even affect your internal organs. The condition typically starts in a specific body part, such as a leg, hand, or internal organ. Gangrene can spread through your body and cause you to go into shock if left untreated. Shock is a condition marked by a variety of symptoms including low blood pressure. Shock can be life-threatening and is considered a medical emergency. Gangrene is a medical emergency that could lead to amputations or death. Recognizing and treating the condition as fast as possible will improve your outlook. Types of gangrene Dry gangrene All of your organs (such as your liver, heart, and muscles) need oxygen to function properly and survive. The oxygen is carried to different parts of your body by your blood. Dry gangrene occurs when one of your body parts isn’t getting enough oxygen. Eventually, the body part will start to deteriorate and die. With dry gangrene, the skin is closed and there is no evidence of infection. Wet gangrene Wet gangrene happens when your body tissues become infected with some type of bacteria. The tissues react to the presence of the bacteria by growing moist and breaking down. This process causes the death of your tissues. It’s more of an emergency than dry gangrene because of the possibility of infection spreading to other parts of the body. Gas gangrene Bacteria called Clostridia cause gas gangrene. These bacteria create an infection that causes gas bubbles and toxins to develop inside the affected area. The resulting gases cause tissue death. This type of gangrene can be fatal, though it’s rare in the United States. Images of gangrene Who is at risk for developing gangrene? You are more likely to develop gangrene if you have a history of certain medical conditions, including: arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) in your legs or arms Raynaud’s disease diabetes blood clots appendicitis hernia Some other physical events could increase your risk of gangrene. You may be more likely to develop this condition if you: have lowered immunity because of a medical condition or cancer treatment have recently had surgery have suffered severe frostbite or a head injury, animal bite, or serious burn have been hurt in a traumatic way that includes the crushing of body tissues have had an injection of promethazine hydrochloride that led to tissue damage Smoking, drinking alcohol, and using intravenous drugs may also add to your risk of developing gangrene. Recognizing the signs of gangrene External gangrene Sometimes the first sign of dry gangrene is a reddish line that develops around the affected tissue. This line may later turn black. Other signs that might indicate you have gangrene include: a wound that is red, sore, or swollen a wound that is filled with pus or gives off a bad smell an isolated area of your body feels cold lacking a sense of touch in an isolated area sores that keep coming back in the same place on your body part of your skin has turned an unusual color (greenish-black, red, blue, or bronze) Internal gangrene It’s also possible to experience internal gangrene, which affects your inner tissues or organs. In this case, you may not have any symptoms on your skin or limbs. However, you may have pain, an unexplained fever that lasts a long time, or low blood pressure. You may also experience confusion. How is gangrene diagnosed? Your doctor may suspect that you have gangrene based on your medical history and symptoms. They may also use a combination of additional diagnostic methods to determine your condition. Lab analysis of tissue or fluid samples A scraping of tissue from your affected body part may be examined with a microscope to look for dead cells. Blood tests An abnormally high white blood cell count can indicate a gangrenous infection. Medical imaging Some kinds of imaging are helpful in diagnosing the spread of gangrene in your internal tissues. These tests could include X-rays, MRI scans, or CT scans. An anarteriogram test may be performed if doctors suspect that your gangrene is related to a circulatory problem. This test uses X-rays to monitor the flow of a special dye through your arteries, showing whether any arteries are blocked. Gangrene treatment Antibiotics Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics if bacteria are present. These are typically given intravenously, or through a needle directly into the bloodstream.
