Pharmaceuticals save countless lives every year, and there's no question
that society has benefited greatly from the increased quality of life
and lifespan that modern medicine offers. However, drug companies too
often take advantage of consumers by prioritizing profits over product
safety. Simply put, this is unacceptable, and these pharmaceutical companies
must be held accountable for the damages caused by their actions.
Takeda Pharmaceuticals, manufacturer of the diabetes medication
Actos is currently the focus of numerous
pharmaceutical injury lawsuits because of the drug’s link to bladder cancer. In fact, the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned consumers that using
Actos for more than a year may be associated with a heightened risk of developing cancer.
Unfortunately, once the association between the Actos and bladder cancer
was discovered, Takeda continued to market the product without adequately
warning patients and doctors of the increased risk of cancer. According
to a recent article in Bloomberg, executives at Tadeka were aware of the
risks as early as 2004 but failed to issue any warnings until 2011 in
order to keep raking in billions of dollars in profits.
