The drug Actos has been a huge seller for manufacturer Takeda Pharmaceutical and drug giant Eli Lilly. Since its FDA approval in 1999, Actos has been used by millions of Americans. An oral medication prescribed for controlling type II diabetes, Actos has been linked to causing deadly bladder cancer. If you developed cancer or another illness because of taking Actos, please call our experienced Greenville dangerous drug lawyers at (252) 777-2222 for a free case evaluation.
Actos & Bladder Cancer
In the years following its approval, Actos gradually became associated with some very serious side effects, including the development of bladder cancer. As evidence mounted, the FDA began to take notice. Finally, in 2011, the FDA required Takeda Pharmaceuticals to update the warnings associated with Actos. These warnings now state that diabetics who take Actos for 12 months or longer are at an increased risk of developing bladder cancer.
As it turns out, Takeda Pharmaceuticals probably knew about this risk long before the FDA required them to disclose it. But big pharmaceutical companies tend to place profits before the safety of their consumers. As a result, lawsuits continue to mount, filed by numerous people who have developed mental and physical problems, or who have lost loved ones, because of bladder cancer caused by Actos.
