SEATTLE, Nov. 19, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising. Keller Rohrback L.L.P.

Both Darvon and Darvocet, which contain propoxyphene, are manufactured and marketed by Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Recently, Xanodyne agreed to withdraw Darvon and Darvocet from the market in response to a request from the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA"). The FDA submitted its request to Xanodyne, and to generic manufacturers of the drug, after reviewing data from a new trial study that focused on propoxyphene's affect on heart rhythms. According to the statement issued by the FDA: "The drug's effectiveness in reducing pain is no longer enough to outweigh the drug's serious potential heart risks."
