Florida Actos Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Actos Lawsuit Lawyers

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

It has become apparent that there is a large number of drugs and devices class actions that have been filed against manyfacturers that have targeted women.

We can start with the Dow Corning  siicone  breast implant class action of years ago.  Women are still suffering today. The Dow Corning Trust just recently launched a silicone breast implant explant program.  The leaking silicone and bursting implants  lead to toxicity related immune system diseases like lupus and fibromylagia and other immune deficiency diseases. Women to this date are still suffering from their Dow silicone Breast Implants and the Dow Corning settlement trust is stll living out payments like the new breast explant program.

          Fosamax was supposed to cure osteoporosis but ended up  causing femur fractures.Then we have Yaz and Yasmine birth control pills. Young women were having their lives  altered by pre-mature strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots  and heart attacks.  Many girls harmed were  barely starting a college life.

       History moves along to the metal on metal and metal componednt hip replacements like the  DePuy Pinnacle and ASR Hip Replacement and the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II Modular Stems. These are  a metal on metal hip replacement recalled for their  need for revision surgery. These hip replacements failed  in women more then men. The  smaller frame of a women makes the device more prone to problems in the female structure.

NuvaRing Lawsuits

NuvRing has been another disaster for women causing:

    blood clots in women
    cerebral thrombosis in women
    deep vein thrombosis
    heart attack in women
    pulmonary embolism
    retinal thrombosis in women
    stroke or cerebral hemorrhage
    thrombophlebitis and venous thrombosis with or without embolism
    toxic shock syndrome

Fosamax Lawsuits

Fosamax for osteoporosis actually causes what it is prescribed to fix , femur fractures.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits

   The biggest and most horrific is the  the various vaginal mesh devices for urinary incontinence and uterine, bladder and bowel prolapse. This mesh device is made of a Prolene plastic synthetic fiber that has been falling aprt in women. Thousands of  women across the country are screaming the horrors of the vaginal mesh and lawsuits are being filed in droves. Women are in severe pain described  as razor blades. The mesh  has been reported by female victims to be  eroding thru the vaginal wall and at times into the bladder and bowel.  Women can no longer have sexual intercourse and marriages are falling apart. Women are losing their jobs and cannot work.  And then we have  the Mirena IUD which has been gravitating our of postion and ending up embedded in the uterus or a nearby organ.

Lives are being ruined and justice must be sought. Lawsuits are the only thing these manufacturers understand.

Medical Devices and the Public’s Health: The FDA 510(k) Clearance Process at 35 Years

    July 29, 2011
    Consensus Report
    Public Health, Quality and Patient Safety
    Public Health Effectiveness of the FDA 510(k) Clearance Process
    Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice

Medical devices play a critical role in the health care of Americans. They can range from simple tools, such as tongue depressors and bandages, to complex or life-saving equipment, such as pacemakers, magnetic resonance imaging machines, and heart–lung machines. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) requires a "reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness" before a device can be marketed, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for enforcing this requirement. Devices that are deemed to have a moderate risk to patients generally cannot go on the market until they are cleared through the 510(k) process, named for Section 510(k) of the FFDCA.  Some policymakers and patients have expressed concern about the ability of the 510(k) process to ensure that medical devices on the market are safe and effective. Other policymakers and patients, as well as the medical-device industry, have asserted that the process has become too burdensome and time-consuming and that it is delaying important new medical devices from entering the market.

The FDA turned to the IOM to review the 510(k) process and answer two questions:

    Does the current 510(k) process protect patients optimally and promote innovation in support of public health?
    If not, what legislative, regulatory, or administrative changes are recommended to achieve the goals of the 510(k) process optimally

The IOM finds that the current 510(k) process is flawed based on its legislative foundation. Rather than continuing to modify the 35-year-old 510(k) process, the IOM concludes that the FDA’s finite resources would be better invested in developing an integrated premarket and postmarket regulatory framework that provides a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness throughout the device life cycle. The IOM outlines its criteria for this framework in the report.
