The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently pulled its approval for Ukoniq, a cancer drug, over concerns that patients who take it may be at higher risk of death. The drug’s maker, TG Therapeutics, voluntarily pulled the medication, which was used to treat two types of lymphoma cancer. The FDA previously granted the drugmaker accelerated approval in the U.S. before it reversed its decision after a clinical trial’s findings.
Nadrich & Cohen is representing clients seeking to hold parties accountable for the harm Ukoniq caused them, including the drug’s maker. If you or a loved one took Ukoniq for lymphoma treatment and experienced side effects, or if you have lost a loved one who used the medication, we can help you take legal action. Our personal injury attorney can review your situation and determine if filing a Ukoniq lawsuit is the next step for you. You can reach out to us today for a free consultation.
What Is Ukoniq?
Ukoniq (generic name umbralisib) is a prescription medication the FDA approved in 2021 to treat two kinds of lymphoma: marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) and follicular lymphoma (FL). The oral medication comes in an 800-mg tablet that is taken once a day. Doctors prescribe the drug to some patients with either MZL or FL lymphoma when their diseases fail to respond to prior treatments.
According to DailyMed, common side effects of Ukoniq are:
- Diarrhea and non-infectious colitis
- Severe cutaneous reactions
Per its news release, the FDA recommends that physicians stop prescribing the medication and change their patients’ treatment plans. If you take Ukoniq, you should speak with your doctor about another treatment approach and stop taking the drug as advised.

We Can Start on Your Ukoniq Lawsuit Case Without Upfront Fees, Costs
We care about your recovery, as our former clients can tell you, and this includes addressing any concerns you may have about legal costs. Many people pass up hiring a lawyer because they are concerned about attorney’s fees. We understand this concern.

Dangerous drug cases can take considerable time, so this payment arrangement helps us help our clients who want to pursue their cases without worrying about the costs.
