Were You Damaged by Schering's Interferon?
May 15, 2004

Hi Lloyd:

Well, things are finally coming together for this class action suit!
From what I understand, we now have many people signed up.

I, personally, now receive about 40-60 emails and 3-6 phone calls
EVERY DAY from people out there who have been injured by
PEG-Intron/Rebatron. This treatment affects different people in
different ways. I have talked to people who have gone blind or deaf,
have muscle/bone/nerve conditions, diabietis, thyroid problems, on and
on.

Thank you for all your help. Please continue to refer people to either
Patrick Catalano at 619-233-3565 or myself at AGia...@AOL.com or
707-537-7871.

Annie G.

If you have been damaged by interferon you should help straighten out
the manner in which it is prescribed.

By filling out the form below, you will be represented by the most
competent attorney's in this field.

You can help others in the future to be properly informed as to the
success rate and the warnings.

You can help yourself by being compensated for the damage done to you
by this treatment that is worse than the disease. You can bring the
truth out, the truth that interferon is a drug looking for a disease
to cure and hepatitis c is not it!

This class action suit is perhaps the best effort we can make in our
fight for public awareness of Hepatitis C!

After all, we all know about Erin Brocovich, Ed Masery, her attorney
has joined with my attorney, Patrick Catalano to sue Schering Plough
in a class action suit involving interferon and its disabling side
effects.

If you have been damaged by schering's interferon or peg intron, fill
out the form and mail it to the address on the form.

If you have any questions, send me a email at Lloyd <at>
hepatitiscfree.com
or call 877 676 1615.

The goal is not to go against your doctor or a hospital.
This is a class action suit against the manufacture, Schering Plough.

Lloyd Wright

Were you damaged by Schering's interferon?
If so, join us on our Crusade to bring Schering to Justice
Fill out this form and send it to Patrick Catalano.

Hi Lloyd & Felisa:

You were right about Patrick. He has been quietly working like a
mad-man behind the scenes.

I guess tomorrow, he is signing up Ed Masry (Erin Brockovich), to join
forces with us.

I understand that he has enlisted the both of us to come up with a
bunch more names by tomorrow. I hate it when I feel like I have an
"impossible mission", because I hate to fail any mission! I have put
out about 100 emails and have had just a few responses. In the
meantime, I just got a computer up and running, since my other one's
hard drive completely fried! And, I am having a huge "flare-up" of my
interferon injury thing - I can barely walk and can't lift my arm to
scratch my nose!

The thing about me though, is that, no matter how hard the mission, I
never, ever give up! We will find the way. Hopefully, you are having a
little bit more luck than I have in finding some more people. Let me
know if you need me to do anything!

Thank you so very much for helping me so much!!! I couldn't have done
it without you. I owe you a lot - I will also find a way to repay you
both.

Annie G.

to the settlement offer, Law Offices of Patrick E. Catalano may
require client(s) to advance the reasonable costs of trial in the
case.

I have been following this for a couple of months now in my own hep c group, a
couple of websites are up on this topic as well. I'v not posted them in here
for fear of the flames. I am interested to see the outcome. I was curious, are
these lawyers ambulance chasers, or.... are there people out there who have
been seriously damaged by long term sides? I'v always thought this would be an
issue, long ago I thought these things.... but I'm a bit pessimistic that way.

Yeah, I just stumbled across it and posted it because I thought it
might be of interest. I think even on the brochures it says a small
number of people suffer long term damage and a few die from treatment.
When I read that I thought how long before the lawsuits begin... I
don't know what to make of it either.

In answer to your question, in my Liver Support Group there are 2 cases of
Heart Attacks while on Pegintron, as well as one with vision problems and 2
with thyroid problems.
In Hep-c chat rooms I frequent it seems that Rheumatoid Arthritis is rather
common amongst those who have done 48 weeks Pegintron.

Hi Tom,

In the group I frequent, one guy has myathis gravis which his team has
determined is a direct result of IFN, and another girl had Raynauds disease.
Both did not clear. Many have thyroid dysfunctions now, and are clear. So, I
don't know how this would play out. The risks are clearly stated on the inserts
of all the treatment products. In anycase, I will be following this suit for
the sake of my own personal interest.

Take Care,

Kim

Hi Elmo,
I just saw this ( I've been lurking now and then since I cleared the virus)
I won't be signing up for this myself, it doesn't seem right.
We all new going in, the treatment was going to have side affects ...
possibly long lasting.
Yes, I cleared using Scherings tx and it was tough but I would do it again
if it was the only tx available ... knowing there was a chance of long
lasting sides.
Long lasting side effects???Kill the dragon???
The only choice is kill the dragon.

Hey BDH, good to see ya, and I'm happy to hear you won the coveted SVR!

I agree with your post about this class-action suit. Yes, the warnings about
Schering's product (and all the others) are quite clear, so IMHO no one
should be jumping on the lawsuit bandwagon in this one. Also, many of the
lingering or permanent sides of peg-interferon and ribavirin are identical
to some hepatitis C symptoms, and there was never any guarantee that
successful tx would get rid of the hep C symptoms. This looks like just
another greedy law firm and a bunch of people looking for easy money.
Bottomfeeders all.

Dear Waterspider,

As your attorney I must inform you that your attitude toward the legal
profession is false, outrageous, patently untrue, and in fact
tortious. I must therefore discontinue representation of you in your
defense against child pornography charges and instead begin a class
action law suit on behalf of all attorneys against you and your
estate. Please note that if you try to move your trailer house it
will be viewed as an attempt to hide your assets, regardless of the
fact that you owe over $3000 on a trailer house that is worth only
$2500.

Sincerely,

My learned friend,
Your conclusions about my opinion of the legal profession are poorly
researched, lack evidence and are unfounded. You should be advised that I
have the greatest respect and admiration for most members of the legal
profession; it's just the bottomfeeders that I abhor. Even if I did have a
poor opinion of all lawyers, that would not constitute grounds for legal
action because, in my country and under the law of my country, lawyers are
not part of a visible minority and therefore cannot be victim to prejudice.
You must be smoking your torts again, because you never defended me, or
attempted to defend me, on child pornography charges because I was never
accused, charged or even investigated on child pornography or anything
related to such an offense. Don't you remember that I don't even *like*
children?
You may recall that I once solicited your professional advice on the matter
of the validity of percieved threats made via a Usenet newsgroup. You may
recall that I was somewhat taken aback by your reply of, "Fuck 'em if they
can't take a joke," and relieved you of your duties on my behalf.
About my modular home (all right, it's a freakin' trailer), you may be
disappointed to learn that there is no longer a mortgage held against it; it
is fully paid and has been for several years now. As for moving it, that
would be beyond my means because it is permanently attached to a foundation
and has undergone considerable reconstruction to accommodate two large decks
and an addition. Moving it, in short, would require an act of God, and we
both know how likely that is.
Thank you for your attention to this matter. I hope your confusion is
resolved. I remain, yours truly,
Waterspider

I also seem to remember you doing a shot of interferon, forgetting, and
doing another one the same night. Yikes!

Now let me see if I have this right. People take tx to get rid of
hep-c. Tx gets rid of the virus but not the symtoms. If the viral
load of the virus is no indicator of present or future liver damage,
then why is tx used to reduce the viral load.

It was confusion over the change in packaging and not being properly
notified about that change that resulted in me doing 2 shots in one
night. The number on the box and vial was changed from 300 to 150 and I
thought I was doing half a dose. I would have had a case for a lawsuit
on that one. Two weeks later I had to spend a week in the hospital with
IV antibiotics and had surgery to remove the infection in my,

Huh? Some of the symptoms of HCV are caused by liver damage. The liver
will, to a degree, slowly heal itself once the virus is dead, so those
symptoms are likely to go away at some future date, unless the damage
was too substantial for the liver to completely recover. But if the
virus has already caused damage in other organs, those may not heal that
fast, or ever. You still want to kill the virus so it doesn't do even
more damage. Not that complicated, or am I missing something?

Another agreement here. Especially if that lawyer really has a
connection to the Brokovich case, he's one of the worst bottomfeeders
there is. If you read up on the real case instead of the Hollywood
version, you'll see what I mean.

That's the wrong mindset. Never let the truth get in the way of suing
somebody. If anything, it was the sides that made you do it.

No, you attributed the quote to the right person, but without the
paragraph he was responding to his question seemed like only that and
not what it actually was, which was to point out the obvious answer by
asking his false premise question prompted by the false statement in a
prior paragraph which was not a part of your post.

Please don't make me explain that again. :-)
