Two South Florida cancer patients have filed lawsuits against the makers of popular heartburn drug Zantac, alleging that the medication may have caused their cancer. These lawsuits were filed after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a warning regarding the cancer-causing chemical N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which is found in the medication.

Joseph Galimidi Files Claim Against Zantac Manufacturer Sanofi

According to an article by NBC 6 South Florida, Aventura rabbi Joseph Galimidi was the first person to file a cancer claim against Sanofi, the manufacturer of Zantac. Galimidi has been diagnosed with male breast cancer. His lawsuit alleges that Zantac has also taken a devastating toll on his body.

Nancy Lopez Sues Sanofi For Alleged Cancer Link Found in Zantac

South Florida woman Nancy Lopez has also filed a claim against Sanofi for what she says is a failure to warn Zantac users of potentially cancer-causing chemicals in the drug. Lopez was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012. In an interview with NBC 6, she said that she does not have a family history of cancer and that she started taking Zantac to treat her acid reflux at age 15.

In the same NBC 6 article, Lopez tells the station that she believes the company needs to do more to warn other Zantac users of the possible risks associated with taking the medication. She insists that the lawsuit is not about the money, but about protecting others from being diagnosed with breast cancer that may have been caused by longterm use of Zantac.
