Actos Bladder Cancer Overview

Actos class action lawsuits and individual cases are being filed nationwide after it’s been found that taking Actos (pioglitazone) may have caused bladder cancer in up to 40% of patients who took it for more than one year. Takeda Pharmaceuticals released Actos to help improve glucose (blood sugar) control in Type 2 diabetic adults.

Takeda Pharmaceuticals states that Actos (pioglitazone) helps your body better use the insulin you make. Actos is also supposed to help stop your liver from making more glucose or sugar when it doesn’t need to. The Actos class action lawsuit and Actos bladder cancer lawsuits allege that Takeda Pharmaceuticals knew about the risks of developing bladder cancer for diabetics who took Actos for more than one year and didn’t warn patients or doctors of the risk.

Actos Bladder Cancer Symptoms

The Actos class action lawsuit investigation does not dispute the claims by Takeda Pharmaceuticals that Actos can help treat type-2 diabetes. Actos lawyers and Actos bladder cancer attorneys are investigating claims that long-term treatment with Actos may cause cancerous tumors in the bladder as a side effect of using Actos.

A 10-year study showed that diabetics who took Actos (pioglitazone) for more than a year had not just a slightly elevated risk of cancerous bladder tumors, but, increased their risk of bladder cancer by 40%. Recently a lawsuit was filed by an Actos user who only used the type 2 diabetes treatment for four months before developing bladder tumors and being diagnosed with bladder cancer.

There are multiple symptoms of bladder cancer and those taking Actos should be aware of each of them. These bladder cancer symptoms include:

  • Painful or frequent urination
  • Urinary tract infection(s)
  • Blood in your urine

Actos Lawsuits

Hundreds of Actos lawsuits have been filed nationwide. Actos lawyers are investigating all possible injuries connected to Actos side effects.

An Actos Class Action Lawsuit may be filed when many people have experienced the same, or a very similar injury. This could be financial damages, medical expenses, time away from work due to being in the hospital, or even time away from work while caring for an injured or sick loved one who took Actos. Sometimes a class action lawsuit may not be the best strategy for someone injured by Actos. In that case, an attorney representing you or your loved one personally may be the best course of action.

If you are represented individually because you or a loved one has shown signs of bladder cancer due to Actos you may have a much better chance of being compensated for your injuries, medical treatment and pain and suffering due to Actos (pioglitazone). Individual Actos lawsuits may also be able to compensate the spouse or significant other who took care of their loved one while being treated for bladder cancer or other serious side effects of Actos like congestive heart failure, severe cardiovascular problems, lactic acidosis or bone fractures. In addition Actos attorneys are filing wrongful death lawsuits against Takeda Pharmaceuticals if your loved one died from an alleged Actos side effect.
