Actos Drug Litigation Lawyers
The diabetes medication Actos has been linked to increased risk of bladder cancer and of developing a condition called diabetic macular edema, which can cause blindness. Actos (“pioglitazone” in generic form) is made by Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America Inc. It is prescribed to control blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients, but its heightened risk factors have been confirmed in multiple studies. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is taking the findings of these studies seriously. Takeda will be required to include the cancer warning on the drug’s labeling soon.
At Osborne & Francis Law Firm, PLLC, our attorneys represent clients throughout the U.S. who have been injured or have encountered medical complications because of brand name and generic defective drugs. It takes a lawyer with extensive resources, knowledge and litigation skills to battle a major corporation, especially a pharmaceutical company. Drug companies employ resourceful and skilled defense teams and have vast funds on reserve to fight against lawsuits in attempts to avoid responsibility for their negligence and disregard for public safety.
The FDA’s warning about the cancer risks associated with Actos was issued less than one week after Germany and France banned Actos. The FDA said its decision was influenced in part by the French study that prompted the country’s regulatory action.
In many cases, we find that the drug companies had prior knowledge of side effects and their potential harm to patients yet released the drugs in the market anyway. Profits are put ahead of patient safety.
