Bonita Springs, FL (PRWEB) 4 October 2011

Gilman Law LLP, a leading national law firm, announces that it is now accepting claims for bladder cancer patients who have taken the defective diabetes drug Actos. Manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Actos used a popular drug in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. FDA drug safety announcements linked Actos to an increased incidence of bladder cancer, increased risk of heart attack, cardiovascular disease and heart failure.

pioglitazone hydrochloride sold under the brand name Actos, is an antidiabetic agent (thiazolidinedione-type, also glitazones) along with a proper diet and exercise program used to control high blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes ( -insulin-dependent diabetes). It is an oral-prescription drugs in the same class as Avandia. Sales of Actos increased greatly, because it was believed to be a safer alternative after Avandia was found to be linked to heart attacks and strokes.

In an update to an ongoing safety review of Actos and other drugs with pioglitazone hydrochloride, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved black box labels on Actos that warn against bladder cancer side effects. The labels recommend that any signs or symptoms that appear when taking Actos, such as blood in urine or painful urination bonded should be reported immediately to a doctor because it may show signs of bladder cancer. The FDA requires that medical problems FDAs MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program report, so that they can track problems with Actos.

In June 2011, suspended medical regulators in France and Germany use of Actos after a study that included a 22 percent higher risk of bladder cancer among Actos where as for those who showed other types of diabetes drugs. Both the FDA and the French studies have shown that the greatest risk of bladder cancer occurred with long-term exposure to Actos.
