New research suggests that there may be a link between Actos usage and bladder cancer. At the interim of a ten-year long study researching this possible link, the FDA is informing the public that individuals who have used Actos for over a year are 40% more likely to develop bladder cancer.
Similar studies have been conducted in Europe with similar results. Due to the increased risk of bladder cancer with Actos use, France has suspended all use of pioglitazone, the active ingredient in Actos. Following suit, Germany has recommended to not start pioglitazone in new patients.

Lawsuits Filed Against The Manufacturer
The manufacturer of Actos - Takeda Pharmaceutical, Inc - has had more than 5,000 individual lawsuits involving bladder cancer and in 2014, were ordered to pay $6,000,000,000 in damages to an injury victim.
While this amount was later reduced to $37,000,000, it became known that the manufacturer destroyed important documents on a number of employees that were involved in the develpoment and marketing of this drug.

Manufacturers of Actos, the Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, failed to adequately warn patients of the risk in taking this medication. The FDA has subsequently enforced the addition of a Black Box warning label informing consumers of the increased risk of bladder cancer while taking Actos.
At the Edwards Law Firm, we believe the manufacturers of unsafe drugs such as Actos should be held accountable when someone is put at risk by their products. If you or a loved one has been harmed by the use of Actos, you need to explore your legal options before it is too late.
