The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in Oct. 2017 issued a warning letter to consumers urging them to avoid selective androgen receptor modulators, or SARMs, as the products have been linked to an increased risk for serious side effects including liver damage, heart attack, blood clots and even death.

History of Cardarine
Cardarine was initially developed in the 1990s by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Ligand Pharma, as the companies worked together to create a medicine that could potentially halt the formation of tumors in the colon, prostate and breast tissue. As is often the case during the research and development phase of a new drug, unanticipated potential uses for Cardarine were discovered, as the medicine seemed to reduce fat, quicken recovery times and increase lifting endurance.
The compound reached phase 1 trials in 2000 for the treatment of lipid strain, and then was discontinued in 2008. Today, Cardarine is used both as a research compound by scientists, as well as by athletes for its performance enhancing and fat burning purposes.
What are SARMs?
Unlike traditional anabolic steroids, SARMs work specifically on muscle tissue, which is why manufacturers and proponents of the products consider them “safe steroids.” In theory, SARMS mimic the effects of testosterone in the body; however, unlike synthetic testosterone or anabolic steroids, they are directly targeted at skeletal muscle. However, given that they are so new and may contain unregulated substances, it is still unclear just how safe or dangerous SARMs truly are.
SARMs Side Effects
- Liver damage
- Cardiovascular complications
- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
Does Cardarine Cause Cancer?
It was reported in 2007 that while in the process of researching Cardarine, GSK found that it promoted cell death in the liver, and could potentially cause cancer in some of the same organs it was purported to help. GSK pulled the plug mid-study and has since discontinued all research on the drug.

Only a qualified attorney can determine whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit against the maker of Cardarine, which is why we are currently offering free case evaluations. Simply fill out the confidential evaluation form below to contact our law firm now.
Most cases involving pharmaceuticals allege that a drug was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain side effect. In the case of Cardarine, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that the manufacturer failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of severe liver damage and cardiovascular complications.
