MHRA takes action over Steril Milano sterilisation problem

breast cancer compensation

The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) has recently been forced to respond to reportedly fraudulent activity at Steril Milano, a medical company that provides sterilisation services to many medical device manufacturers. Although it is an Italian-based company, it serves manufacturers who provide products in the UK, which is why the UK regulator saw fit to take action.

In 2021, Steril Milano was acquired by Ionisos and it then became the subject of suspicion over alleged fraudulent activity. When this was identified, the company’s certification was withdrawn, which means that products which were already sterilised by this point could, potentially, not have been processed correctly.

According to the MHRA, the safety risks are believed to be low, but the regulator is nevertheless obliged to review the issue and mitigate any potential problems as much as possible.

Pelvic mesh claims for compensation

pelvic mesh inquiry

The controversy surrounding this issue is why pelvic mesh claims have been ongoing for several years, and there has yet to be any concrete ban on the use of the implants. Any action from the government has been limited for those affected by the harmful complications. However, those affected by the adverse consequences of mesh implants may be able to make pelvic mesh claims on the basis of medical negligence, and we can help.

The potential complications are now public knowledge following revealing patient testimonies and a damning independent medical products review. However, many women were kept in the dark about the risks associated with the implants when they agreed to undergo surgery in the first place, and this is an element that we can look at.

If you are one of many patients who has been unfairly put at risk as a result of pelvic mesh implants, you may be able to claim compensation for the harm caused to you. We know how debilitating and life-changing the implants can be, which is why we want to ensure that all victims have a chance to seek the justice that they deserve.
