HOW AM I TRYING TO HELP?

I am an attorney for IC Patients. I am working with a well known mass tort law firm in an effort to conduct a large group study to investigate the causal connection between the drug Elmiron and eye disease.

Past Elmiron and Macular Degeneration Causal Link Studies

  • NIH Study 2017, 6 patients
  • Emory Eye Center Study 2018, 10 patients
  • Kaiser Permanente Study 2019, 91 patients
  • Harvard Study 2019, 1 patient

Elmiron IC Advocates Questions and Answers:

  1. What is Elmiron? Elmiron is a drug made from Pentosan polysulfate. It is a medication used for Interstitial Cystitis. 
  2. What is Macular Degeneration? Macular Degeneration is an eye disease that progressively destroys the macula, the central portion  of the retina, impairing central vision.
  3. Why do we need another study to make a strong argument that there is a causal link between taking Elmiron and macular degeneration?  A larger study is needed to  further strengthen the argument that a causal connection exists between taking elmiron and being diagnosed with macular degeneration.
