A class action lawsuit has been filed over the increased bladder cancer risk that has been linked to the use of Actos, a type 2 diabetes medication.
The lawsuit was filed against the maker of the drug, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, last month in the Eastern District of Louisiana by two users of Actos who both developed bladder cancer after using the medication.
Although, the lawsuit was filed by two users, it seeks coverage of all those who have used the product since 1999. In June 2011, the FDA issued a warning that stated that if a person used Actos for over a year, the risk of developing bladder cancer increased.
If you or a loved one has developed bladder cancer after using Actos, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Actos lawsuit lawyers of William Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 today.
