Patients suing over injuries from using PoliGrip and Fixodent denture cream to consolidate their cases in an MDL this month. Denture cream lawyers argue that the plaintiffs’ lawsuits contending that the plaintiffs suffered neurological damage from zinc in the products should be consolidated as a class action for the purpose of core discovery against the manufacturers of PolyGrip and Fixodent.
The problem with zinc that led to these denture cream lawsuits – that may be soon be consolidated in an MDL (class action for discovery) is that excessive amounts of zinc can cause injury. The denture cream lawsuits argue that the manufacturers have known for years yet added zinc even after it was well known that excess zinc causes copper depletion or “hypocupremia. ” Excessive zinc reduces the level of copper because the body’s receptors for copper fail when a person uses excessive zinc causes the body’s receptors to stop accepting copper because they are fully loaded with zinc.
