ACTOS Hearings Have BegunMark Clore ·
A federal judge will hear the claims Takeda Pharmaceuticals' top-selling diabetes drug, Actos, in associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. Late last year the judiciary prepared itself for dozens of lawsuits against the manufacturers of Actos. Thousands of claims against Takeda and its related companies on behalf of people who used the drug are expected to be filed.
Takeda's Japanese parent company stopped the sales of Actos in Germany and France last year. The FAD issued a warning regarding the drug's link to cancer in 2010 but continued to permit sales of the drug. The ACTOS lawsuits claim that people who take the drug for more than a year are at increased risk of bladder cancer. The lawsuits claim the maker concealed the cancer risks and failed to properly warn consumer and health care providers.
