Januvia Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuit: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Growing Litigation Surrounding Januvia
Date:7/14/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 14, 2013

Januvia pancreatic cancer lawsuit claims, as well as complaints alleging the drug caused patients to develop pancreatitis and thyroid cancer, continue to mount in courts throughout the U.S. According to court records, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) is currently considering a proposal to consolidate all federal Januvia lawsuits, as well as claims involving similar diabetes drugs in the same incretin mimetics class, in a single federal court for pretrial proceedings. On April 29th, 2013, Merck & Co., the maker of Januvia, voiced support for the establishment of a multidistrict litigation for all federal claims involving the drug. However, the company is seeking to have the litigation limited to allegations that use of incretin mimetics, including Januvia, caused pancreatic cancer. (In Re: Incretins Products Liability, Sales and Marketing Litigation, MDL 2452, JPML)

“We agree that the establishment of a consolidated litigation would allow claims involving incretin mimetics, including Januvia lawsuits, to proceed efficiently, ” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Januvia lawsuit consultations to victims of pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis and thyroid cancer that may be associated with the drug.
