San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Wanda Heavey and people who suffer from Actos Side Effects. 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 June 12th, 2012, New York woman Wanda Heavey filed a $10 million lawsuit in New York Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv02945) alleging she suffered bladder cancer after taking Actos for five years. Actos is a type 2 diabetes drug, manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceutical Industries Limited and promoted as decreasing insulin resistance. In the lawsuit Heavey claims she started taking Actos in 2005 and she continued till December 2010 when she was diagnosed with bladder cancer. In July 2012 the lawsuit was transferred to the MultiDistrict Litigation Western District of Louisiana (MDL 2299) for all federal claims alleging injury caused by Actos.
Findings of the study published on July 3rd 2012, in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, revealed that Actos (pioglitazone) is linked to increased risk of bladder cancer.
