Actos (pioglitazone) is linked to increased risk of bladder cancer
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 03, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Joann Fassio and people who suffer serious Actos Problems. 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 1st, 2012, Connecticut resident Joann Fassio filed a lawsuit in Connecticut District Court (case no. 3:2012cv01113) alleging she suffered serious injuries, including bladder cancer, from the use of Actos. Actos is a type 2 diabetes drug, manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceutical Industries Limited and promoted as decreasing insulin resistance. Plaintiff claims she started taking Actos in 2003 following the physician’s directions and she was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2008.
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.
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 the alleged 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 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 Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 2299) signed a Direct Filing Order making it easier for individual plaintiffs to file lawsuit alleging injury caused by Actos.
