Celebrex Lawsuit Resource Center
Celebrex lawyers are ready to help regular users of the Celebrex drug, another COX-2 inhibitor that has been found to have highly increased risks of heart problems, stroke and blood clots.
Pfizer, the manufacturer of Celebrex (Celecoxib), was running a government-sponsored cancer prevention trial as part of an effort to find a new application for the drug-it is currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of arthritis and pain. The National Cancer Institute, which was conducting the study for Pfizer, suspended use of the drug after finding that patients taking 400mg to 800mg of Celebrex daily had a 2.5 times greater risk of major heart problems than those who were taking placebos (look-alike pills with no active ingredients).
