DrugRisks Update: Doctor Testifies Actos Main Cause of Bladder Cancer in Trial
Date:4/9/2013

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 09, 2013

The drug safety advocates at DrugRisks.com are alerting of updated legal news on the site for patients who have taken the diabetes drug Actos. Trial continues against the maker of the drug for a man alleging it caused his terminal bladder cancer***.

DrugRisks is designed to improve the safety of those taking popular prescription drugs like Actos by providing the latest warnings, recalls, studies and legal news. Visitors can determine if other patients are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

The FDA and European Medicines Agency* have warned that taking Actos for longer than one year may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. Regulators in France and Germany have also banned it from being prescribed**.

The resource center discovered as many as 3,000 patients in the U.S. have filed an Actos lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals over allegations their drug caused bladder cancer***. The first trial began last month in California for Jack Cooper, a grandfather who is terminally ill from the disease***.

Now DrugRisks notes an article from Law360 on March 26, 2013 which quotes the testimony in this case of Dr. Norm D. Smith, an assistant professor of urology and surgery at the University of Chicago, that Actos was the “most substantial causative factor” of Mr. Cooper’s advanced cancer****.

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.
