Lawsuit Alleges Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., Maker of Diabetes Drug Actos, Didn’t Warn of the Drug’s Risks Soon Enough; Parker Waichman LLP Responds
Date:9/6/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 06, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs, notes that, according to a Sept. 4 Bloomberg report, during a trial over the diabetes drug Actos, a lawyer for the Plaintiff alleged Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. had failed to warn consumers about certain cancer risks related to the drug (An v. Nieberlein, 24-C12003565, Circuit Court for the City of Baltimore, State of Maryland).

Takeda officials knew by 2005 that studies had shown links between Actos and cancer and didn’t issue a warning until six years later, the lawyer alleged in opening arguments, according to the Bloomberg report.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which approved Actos, has been warning of the risks of the drug since 2011. On June 15, 2011, the agency said that taking Actos for more than a year could significantly increase the risk of bladder cancer. The safety label on Actos was updated to address this risk.

“The FDA was among the first to determine the drug Actos can cause an elevated risk in bladder cancer among those who take it for around a year,” said Parker Waichman LLP. “At least now we seem to be on the same page about the potential dangers associated with this drug.”

Aside from the FDA, research studies from other groups provide additional support for the notion of a link between Actos and bladder cancer. The British Medical Journal<
