Januvia Lawsuit News: Rottenstein Law Group LLP Comments on Doctor’s Doubts About Januvia
Date:5/31/2013

(PRWEB) May 31, 2013

Merck’s diabetes drug Januvia can potentially cause pancreatic cancer, according to the research of Dr. Peter C. Butler reported in the New York Times.* The Rottenstein Law Group, which accepts clients in Januvia lawsuits, maintains a site at http://www.januvialawsuits.us that features information about the drug’s alleged side effects and eligibility for filing a lawsuit.

Butler, chairman of endocrinology at the University of California, Los Angeles, has been researching Januvia since 2008, when Merck asked him to determine if the drug could stave off disease in rats, according to the Times. What Butler found is changes in the pancreases of rats that could lead to cancer. His findings are having an impact on not only Januvia, but also sales of other type 2 diabetes drugs such as Byetta and Victoza, that are also linked to pancreatic cancer. His findings have led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and its European counterpart to consider further investigation.

“If Dr. Butler’s findings are true, then Merck should be held accountable for the alleged Januvia side effects,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “Accountability in this case means that those who believed their medication has harmed them should have the opportunity to be compensated for their alleged harms.”

At its Januvia Lawsuits Center, the Rottenstein Law Group LLP features information on all the serious side effects of Januvia, news on the drug and information about how to file a Januvia lawsuit.
