Looks like plaintiffs' lawyers are pretty enthused about the Avandia possibilities. Not only is there a ton of Google ads for attorneys, but they're in the spam game now too. Here's one I received on my home account today:

Have You Taken AVANDIA?
The New England Journal of Medicine has released the results from 42 studies
involving 15,560 diabetes patients who were prescribed Avandia.
Patients getting Avandia were 43 percent more likely to have a heart attack.
The study also suggested a trend toward higher death rates in the Avandia group.
Avandia (rosiglitazone) is manufactured by drug maker GlaxoSmithKline,
and is one of the most popular pharmaceuticals for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes
If you or someone you know has taken Avandia you or that someone or their family may be entitled to monetary damages.
