Subject: ISONIAZID. 16/10/95.
INTRODUCTION. I was given ISONIAZID, the anti-tubercular drug, in
Bangour Hospital, Bathgate, West Lothian, Scotland, from June
1953 until August 1954. I had been injured in a mining accident
on 18/02/53 and because of my weakened state tuberculosis at-
tacked all my damaged areas from June 1953. ISONIAZID was first
imported into the UK in mid-1953 and so I must have been amongst
the first British patients to have been prescibe it.
When my hospital treatment was finished I was only able to re-
start on light work from 05/11/56 and for the rest of my working
life because I had been unaccountably disabled by weakened,
restricted and painful hips, knees, left ankle, neck and right
shoulder joints, and also serious sight damage to my left eye.
REQUIRED URGENTLY PLEASE:
1. Name and address please of USA maker of, ISONIAZID.
2. Any information about injuries caused to users of ISONIAZID
and any court, or out-of-court, damage case settlements known
about with references, especially before and during 1953/54 and
dealing with loss of sight, constant ringing in the ears, severe
headaches, or joint osteoporosis.
3. Any information about reformulations of ISONIAZID after 1953
to reduce its strength or reported side-effects.
4. Failing any of the above then advice as to where the informa-
tion I require may be found.
REASON FOR NEEDING THE INFORMATION: I may have a case to sue the
manufacturer of the anti-tubercular drug ISONIAZID which is
thought to have permanently and almost totally damaged the sight
of my left eye from about 01/01/1957.
I only discovered that ISONIAZID was the cause of my blindness
and that my life-long painful joint problems were due to osteo-
porosis in June 1995. This was as the result of a Industrial
Injuries Independent Medical Appeals Tribunal on 20/07/95. There-
fore I still have three years to prepare a case against the USA
company that produced the drug I was given from June 1953 until
August 1954 following a mining accident. Is it possible that
ISONIAZID was also responsible for this lifelong affliction?
My legal adviser tells me that researching and finding out what
other cases already settled in or out of court throughout the
world, and especially in America, would cost a small fortune and
I would be best to forget the matter.
I find it difficult to forget having had a useless left eye and
troublesome joints for they have impaired every aspect of my life
and my employment prospects for over 42 years!
SO PLEASE HELP INTERNET AND PROVE THE LAWYERS WRONG?
