Nadrich & Cohen is investigating Actos (Pioglitazone) victims in all 50 states who’ve been diagnosed with Bladder Cancer. Sadly, this diabetes drug has been linked to Bladder Cancer. On July 11, 2011, the French drug regulatory agency suspended the sale of Actos in France because of the bladder cancer risk. This action was taken after a large study of over 150,000 diabetic patients which compared individuals who used Actos (including the generic version) with those who did not. The study concluded that using a high dose of Actos over a period of one year or more greatly increases the risk of bladder cancer.
Unfortunately, Actos is still sold in the United States. In July 2011, the FDA issued a safety alert acknowledging the cancer link, but did not restrict the sale of Actos or indicate it planned to withdraw Actos from the market.
The purpose of Actos is to maintain correct sugar levels. Its primary function is the prevention of the overproduction of sugar in the liver to help promote the efficient use of natural insulin that the liver produces.
Previous health warnings prior to bladder cancer included heart failure.
As a result of the European suspension, the FDA issued a safety alert on June 15, 2011 commenting on the relationship between Actos and bladder cancer. Doctors were told not to prescribe Actos to patients who already have bladder cancer.
On August 5, 2011, the FDA approved new labels for Actos including warnings of the bladder cancer risk.
