A Letter from David Eisbrouch, Esq.
It should come as no surprise to an Actos lawyer that another TZD drug is back in the spotlight after exposing patients to dangerous side effects. But this time, the risk is less concerned with heart failure and more focused on a certain type of cancer. Shortly after the FDA released a June 15 warning regarding Actos bladder cancer, we began receiving calls to our Actos lawsuit phone number.
Callers who have taken the type-2 diabetes drug Actos, particularly those who have taken it in high doses for more than a year, express increasing concern that they have been exposed to a risk of which they were not previously aware. Although this particular Actos side effect has been the subject of ongoing medical investigation for some time, other recent events both here and abroad have further sparked the attention of consumers and patients worldwide. As a result, many are seeking the advice of a seasoned Actos lawyer.
On June 9th, the French Medicines Agency issued an Actos recall after data taken from their national insurance plan revealed a larger incidence of bladder cancer among patients who took Actos as compared with other TZD medications. That action came just days ahead of the FDA’s warning about Actos bladder cancer . The French Actos recall prompted a similar caution by the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices who has suspended sales of the drug there. Last month, the first US Actos lawsuit was filed.
The Actos lawyers at Balkin & Eisbrouch are taking the lead in Actos litigation.
