Byetta Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on BMJ Investigation Finding Incretin Mimetic Risks Were Downplayed
Date:6/20/2013

about Byetta’s effects on the pancreas have been mounting since 2008, when the FDA reported that Byetta had been associated with a high number of adverse event reports involving pancreatitis.** In February 2011, research published in Gastroenterology linked the drug to a nearly three-fold increase in the risk for pancreatic cancer, and a six-fold increase in the risk for pancreatitis.*** The same study also reported 30 cases of Byetta thyroid cancer in patients taking the drug. On March 14, 2013, the FDA announced it was investigating findings from an unpublished study that suggested incretin mimetics like Byetta could be associated with pre-cancerous cellular changes in the pancreas called pancreatic duct metaplasia.****

On June 10, the American Diabetes Association called for an independent review of Byetta and other incretin mimetics due to the recent controversy. Among other things, the group is requesting that the manufacturers of these medications make patient-level data available on all subjects involved in regulatory trials for such an analysis.*****

Alleged victims of Byetta pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis or thyroid cancer may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other damages. To learn more about filing a Byetta lawsuit, please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. To arrange for a free case review, please call 800-511-5092.
