DrugRisks Adds Update from First Actos Trial of Patient Alleging Bladder Cancer

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2013

The drug safety advocates at are announcing updated legal news on the site for patients who have taken the diabetes drug Actos. The first trial began this month for a retired man who alleges he developed bladder cancer after taking the medication.

DrugRisks was created to provide those taking popular prescription drugs like Actos with the latest safety alerts, recalls, studies and legal news. Visitors can determine if other patients are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

Health experts with the FDA and European Medicines Agency* have warned that use of Actos for extended amounts of time may be linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. Regulators in France and Germany have also banned its use**.

In the United States, as many as 3,000 patients have filed an Actos lawsuit against drug maker Takeda Pharmaceuticals over allegations of bladder cancer***. Over 1,200 of these have been consolidated in a special multi-district federal court in Louisiana, while others are pending in California.

Now, DrugRisks has learned that the first Actos lawsuit trial began this month in California for a retired man who alleges the drug has left him terminally ill from bladder cancer***. At the trial, a former pharmacologist for Takeda testified that the company was more concerned with continued sales of the drug rather than the safety of patients***.

Lawyers continue to help those diagnosed with bladder cancer after taking Actos file claims. Anyone affected is urged to contact the DrugRisks Center or speak with a lawyer about their legal rights as soon as possible.

Due to the specialized nature of drug injury litigation against large pharmaceutical companies, DrugRisks only recommends lawyers and law firms who have already handled Actos lawsuits.
