Actos® European Recall and FDA Stance

A wave of recent studies which definitively link the prescription drug Actos—prescribed for Type 2 diabetes—to bladder cancer gives a fairly clear indication that Takeda Pharmaceuticals may soon be flooded with Actos lawsuits. August, 2011, saw the first Actos lawsuit filed by a 54-year old woman from Pennsylvania who had taken Actos for over a decade, then was diagnosed with bladder cancer.

Actos® Damages and Typical Settlements

The Type 2 diabetes drug Actos is one of a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones and has recently been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer, liver disease and cardiovascular issues. The FDA felt that the link between heart failure and Actos was serious enough to require increased warnings on the drug packaging concerning congestive heart failure.

Actos® and Congestive Heart Failure

The drug Actos, also known as pioglitazone is marketed by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. The drug was approved in 1999, and although the manufacturer touts it as a miracle drug which has reduced the number of diabetes cases by as much as 70%, the side effects may far outweigh the benefits. A study done in 2003 by the Mayo Clinic definitively linked Actos to swelling in the feet, lung fluid retention, shortness of breath and congestive heart failure.

Actos® and Cardiovascular Dangers

The drug Actos, marketed by Takeda Pharmaceutical Corporation, is used in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. Actos largely replaced its predecessor, Avandia, after Avandia was found to have serious risks of heart attack and heart failure. At the time, it was believed that Actos offered much less risk of cardiovascular damage than Avandia. Actos is used to lessen blood glucose labels and improves how the body handles insulin.

Law enforcement and judicial officials issue daily warrants all across the nation for those who have failed to appear as required, and the city of Houston issues these warrants as well. The vast majority of Houston arrest warrants stem from failure to appear on a ticket issued for a traffic offense or possibly another minor Class C misdemeanors.
