ACTOS

Actos® Lawsuits

Actos®, the brand name for the compound pioglitazone, is a drug used to treat Type 2 Diabetes.  Actos® belongs to a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones which operate by lowering insulin resistance in muscle and fat tissue in the body.  They also reduce the amount of glucose produced by the liver.  However, individuals taking Actos® are at an increased risk of developing bladder cancer.  Many individuals have filed lawsuits against the manufacturer of Actos® to recover damages related to their development of bladder cancer after taking Actos®.  All of the lawsuits filed in U.S. Federal Courts have been consolidated in the Western District of Louisiana in front of Judge Rebecca F. Doherty in MDL No. 2299.
