New Actos Lawsuit Joins Multidistrict Litigation

Filed November 9th, 2012 Laurie

A Mississippi man has filed a lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals America, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. f/k/a Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc. Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited and Eli Lilly and Company, saying the defendants failed to warn him about the risk of bladder cancer associated with their Type 2 diabetes drug, Actos. The patient is being represented by the national law firm, Parker Waichman LLP.

The man alleges the drug, which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999, caused him to develop bladder cancer around September 2011. He had been taking Actos since 2007. The complaint holds the defendants liable for severe mental and physical pain and suffering, permanent injuries and emotional distress, economic loss due to medical expenses and living related expenses due to a new lifestyle. His wife is also suing for loss of consortium.

The FDA warned in June that Actos had been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer in people taking the drug for more than one year. A study published in July in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that patients taking Actos have a 22 percent increased risk of developing the disease.

This most recent lawsuit will join thousands of others that are already a part of an Actos multidistrict litigation (MDL).
