We completely underestimated the number of diabetics, who were using the diabetes drug called Actos, and then developed bladder cancer
(PRWEB) January 09, 2012
The US Drug Watchdog says, "Few people would ever consider the possibility of a drug being used for diabetes, could also be related to elevated cases of bladder cancer. It is for this reason we need the help of loved ones, or family members of diabetics, who now have bladder cancer, to ask if the diabetic was, or is using the diabetes drug called Actos. There appears to be a correlation between US diabetics, bladder cancer, and the drug called Actos, and we want to identify every possible victim, in the hopes we can get them some meaningful help." Actos is a member of a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones, which have been linked to bladder cancer. Actos side effects include increased risk of congestive heart failure, and an increased risk for bladder cancer. According to the AP, "The US FDA has also issued a warning about Actos, and bladder cancer. Both Germany and France have suspended sales of Actos. The Actos suspension is effective July 11, 2011. Actos (pioglitazone), along with another diabetes drug made by Takeda Pharmaceutical, Competact, came under fire in Europe after a study revealed an increased risk for bladder cancer among diabetes patients who were taking the medication." For more information Actos users, who now have bladder cancer, or their loved ones are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug's use. If you have a friend, or loved one, who was, or is using the diabetes drug called Actos, who has developed bladder cancer, please have them call us at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "Tragically the Internet is loaded with misleading ads about Actos use, and bladder cancer compensation, lawsuits, or class actions. Unfortunately, most of the attorneys or law firms advertising for help with the diabetes drug called Actos, and bladder cancer are middlemen marketing law firms--not the actual trial law firms that will prosecute these cases." They say, "We want to make certain all Actos bladder cancer victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients--period--no middleman marketing law firms, or attorneys."
