The US Drug Watchdog is now saying, "We have totally underestimated the number of US diabetics, who used the diabetes drug called Actos, and now have developed bladder cancer. We believe the number is in the thousands. However, our big fear is many US diabetics, in the United States, who have been taking the diabetes drug called Actos, would ever make the connection between their bladder cancer, and their use of the diabetes drug called Actos, so we are asking family members to help us out. Do you have a family member, who is also a diabetic, who has bladder caner, and was using the diabetes drug called Actos? If the answer is yes, please call us immediately, so we can make sure the victim gets to the best possible law firm, or attorneys, because the compensation for these cases could be very significant, and we want to make certain all Actos victims get the best possible legal 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 diabetics, who used the diabetes drug called Actos, who now have bladder cancer, or their loved ones are urged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com.
