Baum Hedlund Files Actos Bladder Cancer Lawsuits In California
Thursday, December 29, 2011

Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman has filed Actos bladder cancer lawsuits in Superior Court for the State of California for the County of Los Angeles against Japanese-based Takeda Pharmaceuticals and its subsidiaries on behalf of three California residents and their spouses alleging Actos caused their bladder cancer.

In the 12-count complaints the plaintiffs allege that Takeda knew or should have known that Actos use in humans would cause bladder cancer and that Takeda possessed pre-clinical scientific studies, including animal evidence, which signaled that bladder cancer risk needed to be further tested; all prior to Takeda applying for and obtaining approval for Actos. In fact, plaintiffs allege that Takeda has known since the early 2000’s that human clinical trials revealed Actos causes bladder cancer.

The lawsuits also allege that for over 10 years and to date, Takeda concealed and failed to completely disclose its knowledge that Actos was associated with or could cause bladder cancer or its knowledge that it had failed to fully study and test regarding that risk. Read more about the lawsuits here.
