Beovu® (brolucizumab) is a drug used to treat wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), an eye disease that can lead to blindness. However, the side effects of Beovu may make vision problems worse or leave people totally blind, according to recent warnings from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you received a Beovu injection and your vision worsened as a result, you may be able to pursue compensation through a Beovu lawsuit.
FDA Adds Warnings to Beovu Product Label
On June 10, 2020, the FDA approved an update to the label of Beovu. This new label added warnings for adverse reactions — including retinal vascular occlusion and retinal vasculitis — that can cause permanent blindness.
The label change came months after the FDA gave Beovu approval in October 2019, meaning thousands of people who used the product before this time may have been put at risk without knowing.
Beovu Lawsuits: Wet AMD Injection Linked to Blindness
Beovu was marketed as a cure to one of the leading causes of vision loss: wet AMD. But we now know this medication can actually make eyesight worse. Some who have received Beovu injections are facing a life of permanent blindness.
Over 50,000 people received Beovu injections before the FDA added new warnings about blindness and vision loss in June 2020. If you used this medication before June 10, 2020, and now suffer from retinal vascular occlusion, retinal vasculitis, or other vision problems, you may be able to file a Beovu lawsuit.
