Actos is a popular diabetes drug that has been taken by several million people. Many of these patients are concerned by a recent Actos warning issued by the FDA that states this drug may be a contributing factor for bladder cancer.
The Actos warning alerts patients that use of this drug for over a year may be associated with an increased risk of developing bladder cancer.
A study performed by the French Medicines agency of more than 150,000 people has indicated that taking pioglitazone (Actos) for more than one year may lead to a 40% greater risk of the disease.
The Food and Drug Administration is in the midst of concluding their 10 year study into the safety of this drug as well.
The manufacturer of this drug, Takeda Pharmaceuticals has apparently failed to provide any Actos warning about the bladder cancer risks associated with taking this drug.
Some experts believe that 10,000 or more people may have been seriously affected as a result of the drug makers’ negligence. If you have been injured by a defective drug, you have a legal right to seek recovery.
If you or a loved took Actos and have been diagnosed with bladder, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation to help with your recovery. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer about your legal rights.
