Lawsuit claims Actos led to fatal case of bladder cancer

Filed December 28th, 2012 Joshua Sophy

A new lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a Wisconsin man alleging the type 2 diabetes drug Actos caused a fatal form of bladder cancer to develop.

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of that man who represents only the latest victim of Actos bladder cancer side effects. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana and has been included as part of the federal Multidistrict Litigation which has consolidated lawsuits making similar claims against the popular drug.

The man is being represented by the national law firm of Parker Waichman LLP, which represents several other victims of Actos side effects in the MDL and in other individual lawsuits nationwide. The firm remains atop all the latest developments as they materialize regarding Actos, including new research identifying those who face the greatest risk of suffering this life-threatening side effect.

In the case of the Wisconsin man, the patient began taking Actos to regulate blood sugar levels in 2004 and was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2009. He died of the disease in 2010.

The lawsuit claims that Takeda Pharmaceuticals knowingly hid evidence that showed taking Actos for longer periods of time could cause bladder cancer and that some cases had already proven to be fatal.
