Byetta Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Awaits Decision on Establishment of Federal Multidistrict Litigation for Byetta Pancreatic Cancer Claims
Date:7/20/2013

metics have come under scrutiny, as concerns have mounted over their potentially harmful effects on the pancreas. On March 14, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced it was investigating findings from an unpublished study that suggested Byetta and other incretin mimetics could be associated with pre-cancerous cellular changes in the pancreas called pancreatic duct metaplasia.* The month prior, a paper published in JAMA Internal Medicine reported that drugs like Byetta appeared to double the risk for pancreatitis, a known risk factor for pancreatic cancer.** A year earlier, research published in Gastroenterology found that Byetta increased the risk of pancreatic cancer by nearly 3-fold. The same study also reported 30 cases of thyroid cancer in patients taking the drug, and a six-fold increase risk for pancreatitis among Byetta users.***

According to Bernstein Liebhard LLP, multidistrict litigations like that proposed for Byetta lawsuits are established when a large number of complex cases share common allegations of facts. The aim of such a proceeding is to preserve the resources of the Court, parties and witnesses, and to avoid duplicative discovery and conflicting orders.

Byetta users who developed pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis or thyroid cancer may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Additional information about filing a Byetta lawsuit is available at Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. To learn more, please call 800-511-5092.
