Actos® may actually increase the risk of bladder cancer – FDA
The drug Actos® has been prescribed by doctors to treat Type 2 Diabetes. In June 2011 the FDA issued a public safety announcement warning that Actos® may actually increase the risk of bladder cancer. In some countries in Europe the sale of Actos® has been suspended. Some Courts have ruled that terminally ill Actos® patients have the right to provide early testimony prior to their cases going to trial with the purpose of perpetuating their testimony at trial.
