Victoza Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuits: Legal Help

Diabetes Drugs Under Scrutiny

Several drugs used in the treatment of type-2 diabetes have come under fire recently for the increased risk of pancreatitis, pancreatic and thyroid cancers, allergic reactions and kidney problems. Victoza, manufactured by the Danish company Novo Nordisk, is one of these drugs. The risks associated with Victoza are considered to be significant; after gaining FDA approval in 2010, adverse reports of the development of acute pancreatitis have been reported to the FDA and entered into their database. A consumer advocacy group, Public Citizen, claims Victoza was approved against the advice of at least three reviewers on the FDA panel.


FDA Requires Further Studies Despite Approval

Despite granting approval for Victoza, the FDA required Novo to conduct a five-year study to determine the risks of pancreatitis, hypoglycemia, serious allergic reactions and pancreatic and thyroid cancers among Victoza patients. Victoza was also designated as second-line defense drug, meaning it would be used only when other drug therapies had been unsuccessful. Within seventeen months following the approval of Victoza, there were over 200 reports of acute pancreatitis among users. A Black Box Warning was added to the labeling of Victoza which cautioned consumers regarding the risks of kidney failure, thyroid cancer and acute pancreatitis (which can lead to pancreatic cancer).

Those who have suffered harm as a result of taking Victoza could benefit from contacting the Law Firm of Sullo & Sullo, LLP.

Within that context, if you are entitled to Victoza compensation, we will handle your case with compassion for your injuries, and zealous, ethical representation.


How Our Sullo & Sullo Attorneys Can Help

We will take care to ensure all deadlines are met and that the medical expenses you have incurred due to harm from Victoza are fully covered. Additionally we will work to obtain lost wages—both past and future—for you along with pain and suffering compensation.
