ACTOS HAS BEEN LINKED TO BLADDER CANCER, HEART FAILURE, AND DEATH: The Law Firm of D’Arcy Johnson Day is currently investigating Actos induced injury cases. Actos, also known as Pioglitazone, is a prescription drug approved by the FDA to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. Actos is manufactured by the Japanese drug company, Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
The FDA issued a safety warning on June 15, 2011, warning that there may be an increased risk of bladder cancer linked to medications containing pioglitazone (branded “Actos” in the US). In both France and Germany, the use and sale of Actos was suspended after an official French study saw a connection between Actos & bladder cancer. Actos bladder cancer lawsuits against Takeda Pharmaceuticals have begun and are expected to increase as potential cases of bladder cancer among Actos patients are investigated.
If you or somebody you love has a personal injury case regarding the use of Actos and its link to bladder cancer, you should contact us immediately.
