More and more lawsuits have been filed that claim that the popular type 2 diabetes drug, Actos, caused patients to develop bladder cancer.
The first lawsuit that was filed against the makers of the Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, was filed in August and as of September there was more than 25 filed.
All of the lawsuits state that the makers of the drug failed to do the appropriate research to make sure that the drug was safe and failed to warn patients that if the drug was used for more than a year, there was a risk of bladder cancer. The first lawsuits was filed just after the Food and Drug Administration released a warning for increased risk of cancer from the use of the product.
