Actos Settlement Information
The Actos lawsuits are being pursued in both the United States District Court in the Western District of Louisiana, and also in the state courts in Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, and California. The first bellwether case tried in the Federal Court was completed in early April, 2014, and resulted in a verdict for the Plaintiff who was afflicted with bladder cancer after taking Actos. Several other cases have been completed in the various state courts with promising, but mixed results.
Actos Lawsuit History
Actos is an oral diabetes drug that increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin. FDA studies have shown an increased risk of bladder cancer among patients with the longest exposure to Actos, typically those exposed for more than a year, and in those exposed to the highest cumulative dose of the drug. Germany and France have banned the drug after a study indicated that long term use could increase bladder cancer occurrences by as much as 40%. Takeda Pharmaceuticals, the largest pharmaceutical company in Japan, had more than $16 billion in US sales of Actos, but now faces thousands of lawsuits from Actos patients afflicted with bladder cancer. Plaintiffs allege that Takeda concealed their knowledge of the risk of developing bladder cancer and failed to provide adequate warnings to consumers and doctors. At least 1,300 lawsuits are pending in Federal Court, with thousands of additional claims being filed in state courts, with the total estimated to be as high as 10,000 for federal and state actions combined.
