Actos® Lawsuit Update: First Actos® Trial in Cook County, Illinois Set for March 2014
There are over 2,600 Actos® bladder cancer cases currently on file against Takeda Pharmaceuticals in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago, Illinois before The Honorable Judge Deborah Mary Dooling (In re Actos Litigation, Case No. 2011 L 10011). The first trial in the Cook County Actos® litigation is scheduled to begin in March 2014.
Actos® is a medication prescribed to control glucose (blood sugar) in adults with Type 2 diabetes. In 2009, sales of Actos® generated nearly 3.4 billion dollars – making Actos® one of the most prescribed medications for the treatment and management of Type 2 diabetes. In June 2011, the FDA issued a drug safety alert warning that the use of Actos® for more than one year may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. Additionally, scientific studies have demonstrated a link between Actos® and bladder cancer.
