Januvia Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Recent FDA Meeting to Discuss Safety of Januvia and Other Incretin Mimetics

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

As Januvia lawsuit claims involving pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer continue to mount in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently held a meeting to discuss the safety of Januvia and other diabetes drugs known as incretin mimetics. According to a June 12th report from, the FDA may seek additional data from the makers of Januvia and similar drugs, following a recent study that indicated the medications could increase risks for pancreatic cancer. One of the options being considered by the agency is a large clinical trial designed to show patterns of adverse events. *

“In light of the possible link between Januvia and pancreatic cancer, we certainly hope that the FDA will order more studies of these drugs,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Januvia lawsuit evaluations to patients who took the medication and were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer or pancreatitis.

Januvia Lawsuits
Incretin mimetics like Januvia help regulate blood sugar by stimulating insulin production by the pancreas. In 2009, information was added to the drug’s label regarding a potential risk for Januvia pancreatitis, after the FDA became aware of 88 post-marketing cases of acute pancreatitis that occurred in patients taking the drug.** In 2011, a study published in the journal Gastroenterology found that use of Januvia appeared to increase the risk of pancreatitis by as much as six-fold. The same study found a possible link between Januvia and pancreatic cancer.***

The FDA’s recent meeting was prompted by data from an unpublished study that drugs like Januvia could cause precancerous changes in the cell of the pancreas, said. Just prior to the meeting, the American Diabetes Association called for an independent review of all incretin mimetics to provide clarity to patients and health care providers in light of the recent controversy.****

Court documents indicate that Januvia lawsuits filed on behalf of patients who used the drug and developed pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis are already mounting in courts throughout the country. On July 25, 2013, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) will meet to discuss whether or not a multidistrict litigation should be established for all federally-filed claims involving incretin mimetics.
