Fixodent Nerve Damage Problems Highlighted by ABC News
A recent ABC News report draws important attention to the risk of nerve damage from Fixodent denture cream, and highlights the debilitating side effects some users have suffered as a result of Proctor & Gamble’s decision not to indicate that their product contains zinc and failure to warn about the risk of zinc poisoning from Fixodent.
The report focuses on two denture cream users who are now severely disabled due to Fixodent nerve problems. Both were diagnosed with high levels of zinc in their bodies and indicate that the only zinc-containing product they used was Fixodent denture cream. They have each filed a Fixodent lawsuit against Proctor & Gamble as a result of their failure to warn about the risk of problems or to even indicate that their denture cream contained zinc.
According to the ABC investigation, research linking denture cream to zinc poisoning was delayed for two years by a peer reviewer named Dr. Kenneth Shay, who failed to reveal that he was a paid consultant for Proctor & Gamble, the makers of Fixodent. In addition, Dr. Shay improperly passed along the findings of the unpublished study to Proctor & Gamble while he was holding up publication, according to the report.
