use of pioglitazone for more than one year may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Nancy Harber. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on August 3rd, 2012, Nancy Harber filed a lawsuit in Louisiana Western District Court (case no. 6:2012cv02097) alleging her husband died of bladder cancer from Actos. Actos is a type 2 diabetes drug, manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceutical Industries Limited and promoted as decreasing insulin resistance. In the lawsuit plaintiff claims that her husband took Actos, from 2000 to 2011; he died of bladder cancer in 2011.
On December 29th, 2011, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) established an MDL (MDL 2299) for all federal claims alleging injury caused by Actos. On April 9th 2012, US District Judge Rebecca Doherty, overseeing the Actos MDL signed a Direct Filing Order making it easier for individual plaintiffs to file lawsuit alleging injury caused by Actos.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe adverse events from Actos, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Actos remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
On August 17th, 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it approved the first generic version of Actos (pioglitazone hydrochloride) tablets. The product label notes that the use of pioglitazone for more than one year may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer.
AttorneyOne.com has further information on Actos lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
