DrugRisk Announces Launch of Byetta Cancer Resource Center
Date:4/20/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 20, 2013

The diabetes drug safety advocates at DrugRisk.com are announcing the launch of a new resource center for patients who have taken the medication Byetta, amid warnings that the drug may be related to pancreatic cancer and thyroid cancer.

DrugRisk was created to improve the safety of those taking popular prescription drugs by providing the latest warnings, recalls, studies and legal news. Patients can see if others are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

Byetta is a twice-daily injectable medication released in 2005 to help those with type-2 diabetes control blood sugar. It generated sales of over $300 million last year, when it was purchased with Amylin Pharmaceuticals by Bristol-Myers Squibb*.

However, DrugRisk has added a 2011 study from UCLA indicating Byetta could increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 290% and thyroid cancer by 473%**. The Journal for the American Medical Association also recently published findings showing these drugs can double the risk of pancreatitis, a major risk factor for pancreatic cancer***.

Now, DrugRisk has learned that, with the number of patients filing a Byetta lawsuit alleging cancer increasing, lawyers have asked that cases be consolidated to a special federal multi-district court in California****. (In Re: Incretins Products Liability, Sales and Marketing Litigation, MDL 2452, United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation).

Anyone affected by cancer after taking Byetta is encouraged to speak with a lawyer about their legal options. However, due to the specialized nature of federal drug injury cases, DrugRisk only recommends lawyers who have already handled Byetta lawsuits.
