Actos Bladder Cancer Causes
Although the exact cause of bladder cancer is unknown, it has been associated with a number of potential risk factors including chemical exposure and smoking. Bladder cancer has also been linked to the prolonged use of the diabetes drug Actos. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a safety announcement in 2011 warning that, “compared to never being exposed to pioglitazone, a duration of pioglitazone therapy longer than 12 months was associated with a 40% increase in risk.”
If you have taken or are taking the diabetes drug Actos and have been diagnosed with bladder cancer, you may be entitled to compensation.
