Roughly ten percent of Americans carry a medical device of some kind implanted in their bodies, ranging from pacemakers and artificial joints to surgical mesh and birth-control devices. Over the past half century we have gradually become a bionic culture; some procedures, such as knee replacement, have become so common that more than 600,000 people undergo the surgery every year in this country, usually to relieve chronic pain from arthritis.

NEW HOME BUYERS BATTLE FORMALDEHYDE PROBLEM FROM WEYERHAEUSER JOISTS

For many Americans, there’s no prouder moment than the day they move into their newly constructed dream home. Unfortunately, for some house buyers in Colorado and several other states, that dream has turned into a nightmare — and something they once took for granted, the prospect of feeling safe and healthy in their own domicile, has become a burning issue.

JUDGE THROWS OUT $27 MILLION VERDICT IN XARELTO CASE

A Pennsylvania judge has overturned a $27 million jury verdict awarded to an Indiana couple, in one of the first of thousands of claims to go to trial against the makers of a popular blood-thinning drug. A Philadelphia jury had decided that Johnson & Johnson and Bayer AG failed to provide adequate warning of internal bleeding risks and other possible side effects of Xarelto, an anticoagulant that’s earned billions for its marketers in the past five years. But the January 9 ruling by Judge Michael Erdos reverses that decision, based on what the couple’s attorney has described as “a very narrow...
