Actos Lawsuit Claims Takeda Diabetes Drug Caused Bladder Cancer

Filed July 24th, 2012 Laurie

National law firm Parker Waichman LLP has risen to the defense of a Kentucky woman who claims she developed bladder cancer after taking the diabetes drug Actos for a prolonged period of time. The firm has filed a lawsuit against the maker of the drug and others –
Takeda Pharmaceuticals America, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited and Eli Lilly and Co. – as defendants.

The complaint claims the defendants were negligent, and/or fraudulent with regard to Actos, which directly impacted the Plaintiff’s health and well-being.

The woman claims she began suffering around July 2009. According to the complaint, the plaintiff took Actos from 2007 to 2010 and, as a result, has endured:
severe mental and physical pain and suffering

  • past and future permanent injuries and emotional distress
  • economic loss due to medical expenses
  • living – related expenses as a result of a new lifestyle.

The complaint states that the defendant would not have taken Actos if she had known about the risks associated with the drug, including a significantly increased chance of bladder cancer.

A study published last month in the British Medical Journal found that patients taking Actos for at least two years had a two-fold increased chance of developing the disease.
