Last week, Japan-based Takeda Pharmaceutical Co Ltd, makers of the drug Actos, announced that the FDA will extend its review of the company’s drug alogliptin. Alogliptin, a diabetes medication, was expected to be the successor to Takeda’s top-selling drug Actos. Before Takeda lost its patent protection on Actos, the type-2 diabetes treatment had been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer in studies. In response, the FDA issued a warning to doctors who prescribed Actos to patients.
Seeger Weiss LLP, a national plaintiffs’ law firm, has been actively investigating the link between Actos and bladder cancer.
