Lawsuit Alleges Actos Causes Bladder Cancer

Filed June 25th, 2012 Laurie

Parker Waichman LLP has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a man who alleges he developed bladder cancer after taking the Type 2 diabetes drug, Actos. Takeda Pharmaceuticals America, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited and Eli Lilly and Co. were named as defendants.

The complaint states that the plaintiff developed bladder cancer in July 2009 after taking Actos from 2007 to 2011.

The lawsuit alleges that Actos caused the bladder cancer and other adverse events as a result of long-term use of the drug. The suit also alleges severe mental and physical pain and suffering, past and future permanent injuries and emotional distress, economic loss due to medical expenses and living related expenses as a result of a new lifestyle.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff would not have taken Actos had he known about the health risks associated with it.

In particular, the complaint points out the significant increased risk of bladder cancer associated with one year’s exposure, which the Food and Drug Administration addressed in a Safety Announcement last June. The announcement cited a 10-year study by Kaiser Permanente which found that the risk of bladder cancer increased 40 percent after using Actos for one year compared to those who had never used the medication.
