The use of Actos for more than one year may increase a person’s chance of bladder cancer
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than John Durel and his wife Jewel. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
In the lawsuit filed on January 17, 2012 no. 3:2012cv00135, John Durel claims he suffered bladder cancer after taking Actos. The plaintiff was hospitalized in 2011 for bladder cancer, which he claims was caused by prolonged ingestion of Actos. John Durel alleges that Takeda Pharmaceutical Industries Limited produced a defective drug, committed fraud and failed to warn about Actos side effects.
In September 2010, the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started reviewing data from a Takeda epidemiological study on the relationship between Actos and bladder cancer. In June 2011 the FDA required a new safety label stating that: “The use of Actos for more than one year may increase a person’s chance of bladder cancer”.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal council so that, in case of Actos adverse effects, 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 of severe adverse effects 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 December 28th, 2011 the federal courts, expecting a wave of Actos lawsuits, issued an order coordinating the Actos bladder cancer lawsuits before one judge in the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana.
