Actos Lawsuit News, Actos Bladder Cancer Lawyers Are Watching The Trials Carefully

Written by Xarelto Helpline on . Posted in Xarelto News

Actos is another dangerous drug harming seniors. Actos is prescribed for Type II diabetics. This is adult onset form of the disease. Lawsuits are being filed for people with a confirmed diagnosis of bladder cancer after being on Actos for an extended period of time.

A Jury Has Found  Takeda Negligent in  A Second Actos Lawsuit  Trial

  Takeda Pharmaceuticals has lost 2 trials. Juries seem to be convinced  that the manufacturer  not  has acted responsibly in warning physicians and consumers of the link between its diabetes drug, Actos, and bladder cancer. A Maryland state court jury recently decided to have  Takeda pay $1.7 million in damages to the family of a former U.S. Army translator who died of bladder cancer in 2012. Unfortunately and additional verdict found the plaintiff did not  to exercise reasonable and ordinary care for his own health and safety, and that his failure was a substantial factor in causing him to develop bladder cancer. That finding required the judge to immediately overturn the verdict. A guilty verdict in the first Actos trial was also nullified by the judge, though that ruling is being appealed. As more Actos lawsuits are filed it becomes clear that Actos causes bladder cancer. In May of 2012, a study of people with type 2 diabetes, published in the British Medical Journal, found that use of Actos nearly doubles the rate of bladder cancer. Over extended periods of time.   a cumulative dosage appears to  have  a  strong connection to a bladder cancer diagnosis. More than 2,500 suits have been consolidated before a federal judge in a  Louisiana MDL and the first of those cases will go to trial in January 2014.
