Greensboro, N.C. – January 13, 2012 – Crumley Roberts began contacting clients this week whose case history may have indicated they took the drug Actos®(pioglitazone) or one of its derivatives.
Recently, a European study raised concern about the use of the diabetes drug Actos ® and the development of bladder cancer. The Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning that the use of Actos for one year or longer may cause bladder cancer in some users. Actos®is the brand name for the drug “pioglitazone.” Pioglitazone, combined with the common diabetes drug metformin, has been sold as Actoplus Met ®. Pioglitazone, combined with glimepiride, has been marketed under the name Duetact ®.
Current studies have NOT shown any connection between metformin or glimepiride used alone or in other combinations with bladder cancer. To learn more about this warning, please visit our website.
