Naples, FL (PRWEB) December 06, 2011
Recent research has indicated that people who use the type 2 diabetes medication, Actos, for a year or more face a higher risk of developing bladder cancer. In the U.S., the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has issued two safety alerts since September 2010 regarding the link between Actos and bladder cancer. Gilman Law LLP is actively investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of the thousands of people who may have developed bladder cancer after using Actos.

In its most recent alert, issued on (fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm259150.htm) June 15, 2011, the FDA warned that use of Actos for more than one year may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. The June safety communication was a follow-up to one the agency issued in (fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm226214.htm) September 2010 after preliminary data from a Kaiser Permanente study demonstrated that the risk of bladder cancer rises with increasing dose and duration of Actos use. New bladder cancer warnings have since been added to the Actos label, and any other drugs containing pioglitazone, the active ingredient in Actos.

Actos has also been the subject of similar safety warnings in Europe. In June, sales of Actos were suspended in France and Germany after a separate study commissioned by French regulators demonstrated an increased risk of bladder cancer associated with Actos in people who took it the longest and at the highest cumulative dose. In July, (takeda.com/press/article_42712.html) Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Inc. officially recalled Actos from the market in France.
Actos, known generically as pioglitazone hydrochloride, is the best-selling type 2 diabetes drug in the world. Pioglitazone is also found in Actoplus Met (pioglitazone/metformin), Actoplus Met XR (pioglitazone/metformin extended-release), and Duetact (pioglitazone/glimepiride).
