Lawyers Filing Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits For Baby Powder
Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits Do You Want To File A Baby Powder Cancer Lawsuit?Studies show that talcum-based powder can cause ovarian cancer in women who have used it for genital/perineal hygiene. Studies dating back to 1982 have consistently linked prolonged talc-based baby and body powder usage with ovarian cancer. The talc particles moves through the female reproductive system and settles in the ovaries. These particles may remain in the ovaries for many years, creating inflammation resulting in the development and proliferation of cancer cells. Studies HAVE Linked Ovarian Cancer to Talc-Based Baby/Body Powder The pathology reports and tissue samples that were used to diagnose the ovarian cancer can now be examined to determine whether your ovarian tissues contain talc particles. Talc particles can be found in the pelvic lymph nodes, ovaries, and fallopian tubes and take many years to disintegrate and exit the body. The talcum powder cancer lawyers at Class Action Lawyer Network are speaking to women about talc having caused your ovarian cancer.

Did you take actos for 1 year or longer? Were you diagnosed with bladder cancer?
You may have a lawsuit against the manufacturers of Actos.
Actos is a medication taken by Type II ( adult onset ) diabetics to control their insulin production. Actos lawsuits are being filed for victims of bladder cancer from Actos.
Actos Lawsuit Overview
Actos lawsuits allege that long-term use of this Type 2 diabetes drug caused patients to develop bladder cancer . These continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Western District of Louisiana. According to court documents, the proceeding’s next Case Management Conference will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. (In re: Actos Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2299)
Actos Multi District Litigation
According to court documents Actos litigation involving bladder cancer lawsuits mounted up shortly after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned in June 2011 that use of the drug for 12 months or more had been associated with an increased risk of the disease. At that time, the FDA ordered Takeda Pharmaceuticals to add new warnings to the Actos label about its potential to cause bladder cancer.
Court filings indicate that more than 2,500 Actos lawsuits are now pending in the Western District of Louisiana, where the first case will go to trial in January. Plaintiffs in Actos lawsuits allege that Takeda Pharmaceuticals and other defendants concealed knowledge that the medication could increase a person’s chances of developing bladder cancer, and failed to provide adequate warnings about that risk to the public and medical community.
On the state level, two Actos claims involving bladder cancer allegations have already gone to trial. Last month, a Maryland State Court jury awarded $1.7 million to the family of a man who died of bladder cancer following long-term use of Actos. However, according to court records, the judge presiding over the trial tossed out the verdict because the jury also found that the decedent’s decades-long smoking habit contributed to the development of the disease. (An v. Nieberlein, 24-C12003565, Circuit Court for the City of Baltimore, State of Maryland.)
This past April, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded $6.5 million to a plaintiff who developed bladder cancer following four years of Actos use. However, the plaintiff is currently appealing a decision by the judge overseeing the case to grant Takeda Pharmaceuticals’ request to set aside the verdict. (Cooper v. Takeda Pharmaceuticals America Inc., CGC-12-518535, California Superior Court)
Long-term users of Actos ( over 2 years ) who have been diagnosed with bladder cancer may be eligible to file an Actos lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
Can I File An Actos Lawsuit?
1. You must have taken Actos for over one year
2. You must have a confirmed diagnosis of bladder cancer
3. You must have no prior medical history of baldder cancer prior to taking Actos
