Actos Bladder Cancer

Actos (pioglitazone) is a type II diabetes drug manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals that has been linked to a higher incidence of bladder cancer. In 2010, more than 2 million diabetes patients were prescribed Actos.

In 2010, the first FDA Actos bladder cancer warning was issued when preliminary data from an ongoing 10-year study run by Takeda Pharmaceuticals pointed to a heightened risk of Actos bladder cancer that grows the longer the drug is taken.  The study is still in progress and the FDA has not yet released any conclusions to the investigation

Italian researchers released a study in May 2011 that cited a disproportionately high incidence of bladder cancer in Actos patients after researching FDA Actos adverse event system records.    The FDA issued a second Actos bladder cancer communication in June 2011, warning that the risk of developing Actos bladder cancer is increased the longer a person takes the drug.

Actos Bladder Cancer Recalls

French and German officials suspended Actos sales after gathering increasing evidence linking Actos to bladder cancer.  France later issued a formal Actos recall, and has also recalled Campetact, a related drug known as ActosplusMet in the United States, has also been recalled in France.  Regulators from other European Countries, Canada, and the United States are currently holding meetings to discuss the link between Actos and bladder cancer in preparation for a possible Actos recall.
