Texas Man Suffering from Bladder Cancer Because of Actos Use, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:7/17/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 17, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs, has filed a lawsuit alleging that Actos is to blame for the bladder cancer of a Texas man. The suit was filed on July 15, 2013, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana (Case No. 6:13-cv-02229). It is one of thousands of cases filed as part of the multidistrict litigation (MDL) entitled In Re: Actos (pioglitazone) Products Liability Litigation (6:11-md-2299). Takeda Pharmaceuticals, America; Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. f/k/a Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc.; Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited; and Eli Lilly and Company have been named as Defendants. Jerrold S. Parker, founding partner of Parker Waichman LLP, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the litigation.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff took Actos from August 2003 through to March 2012. The Plaintiff was suffering from bladder cancer in March 2012, allegedly because of Actos’ side effects. The man’s wife is also listed as a Plaintiff, the Complaint notes, and as such, she is entitled to the comfort, enjoyment, society and services of her spouse. Therefore, loss of consortium claims are alleged in the lawsuit.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration(FDA) has warned about the risks of taking Actos. In June 2011, the agency said that taking Actos for more than a year could significantly increase the risk of bladder cancer. The safety label on Actos was updated to address this risk.

Some research studies support the notion of a link between Actos and bladder cancer. The British Medical Journal published a study on May 31, 2012, that revealed Actos users were twice as likely to develop bladder cancer after two years. Then, on July 3, 2012, the Canadian Medical Association Journal reported that patients taking the medication were 22 percent more likely to get bladder cancer.

Parker Waichman LLP continues to offer free legal consultations to victims of Actos injuries, including bladder cancer, heart problems, and eye injuries.
