Actos Caused Bladder Cancer and Wrongful Death of New York Woman, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:7/9/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs, has filed a lawsuit alleging that Actos is to blame for the bladder cancer and subsequent wrongful death of a New York woman. The suit was filed on May 23, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana (Case No. 6:13-cv-1239). It is one of thousands of cases that have been filed as part of the multidistrict litigation (MDL) entitled In Re: Actos (pioglitazone) Products Liability Litigation (6:11-md-2299). Takeda Pharmaceuticals, America; Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. f/k/a Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc.; Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited; and Eli Lilly and Company have been named as Defendants. Jerrold S. Parker, founding partner of Parker Waichman LLP, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the litigation.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff’s Decedent started taking Actos in 2001. The Decedent was diagnosed with bladder cancer in December 2008 and subsequently died in June 2012, allegedly because of Actos’ side effects. The lawsuit alleges that the Decedent suffered from extensive pain and suffering and severe emotional distress as a result of using Actos. The drug also allegedly reduced the Decedent’s ability to enjoy life.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned about the risks of taking Actos. In June 2011, the agency said that taking Actos for more than a year could significantly increase the risk of bladder cancer. The safety label on Actos was updated to address this risk.

Some research studies support the notion of a link between Actos and bladder cancer. The British Medical Journal published a study on May 31, 2012, that revealed Actos users were twice as likely to develop bladder cancer after two years. Then, on July 3, 2012, the Canadian Medical Association Journal reported that patients taking the medication were 22 percent more likely to get bladder cancer.
