FDA on Actos Bladder Risks

2012 April 17

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now realized the threat that Actos carries.  Consequently, it issued a safety announcement June 15, 2011 that there may be a connection between using Actos for more than one year and a risk of bladder cancer.  This is a very important date.  This means that if you are impacted by Actos you have been on notice for a year.  

France conducted a 3-year study of the drug and, as a result of its findings on Actos’ side effects, the country banned the drug on June 10, 2011. Germany did too.  The US has not done so yet.  This means that you must take matters into your own hands.

If you or a loved one has taken Actos and has developed bladder cancer, and experienced attorney can help get the damages that you deserve.  If you live in Central Illinois, Champaign, Urbana, Decatur, Danville, or Springfield, consider the lawyers at Phebus & Koester, LLP.  Ryan Bradley and the rest of the Phebus & Koeste, LLP team have mass tort experience and offer individualized service.
