While modern medicine has done much to improve the quality of our lives, when defective products or prescription drugs cause unintended consequences, patients suffer unnecessarily from serious injuries -Rudolph F.X. Migliore.
Commack, NY (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
New York law firm Rudolph F. X. Migliore, P.C. has announced they are now accepting cases on behalf of individuals who used the type-2 diabetes medication Januvia, Janumet, Byetta or Victoza and who later developed pancreatic or thyroid cancer.
Januvia is the brand name for sitagliptin (also marketed as Janumet), a medication doctors prescribe for diabetics to help control blood sugar levels.
The FDA originally issued a warning about Januvia risks in 2009. In 2011, researchers found that individuals who have taken Januvia are six times more likely to develop pancreatitis and the risk of pancreatic cancer increased by 270% and the risk of thyroid cancer by 148% (*1). After the Journal for the American Medical Association (*2) published a study in February 2013 that showed drugs like Januvia could double the risk for pancreatitis and lead to pancreatic cancer and kidney failure, the FDA (*3) issued a new Januvia warning.
Rudolph Migliore, stated, "While modern medicine has done much to improve the quality of our lives, when defective products or prescription drugs cause unintended consequences, patients suffer unnecessarily from serious injuries."
