New York Law Firm Now Accepting Cases Involving Diabetes Drug Actos

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 30, 2011 ) Commack, New York -- The law firm of Rudolph F.X. Migliore, P.C. announced today that the firm is now accepting product liability cases concerning the diabetes drug Actos and its link to bladder cancer.

Bladder cancer is often a long and painful journey, with a high recurrence rate. It is estimated that for every 50,000 people diagnosed, 12,000 will ultimately die from the disease. Studies have found that Actos may increase the risk of bladder cancer 40% in patients that have been taking it more than a year. Despite these risks, Actos remains on the U.S. market. It has been pulled in both France and Germany due to these concerns.(1)

Actos is prescribed to patients with type 2 diabetes in order to help control glucose levels in the blood stream, and is supposed to be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regimen. In 2010, more than 2 million patients were taking Actos, many at a long term level that may put them at an increased risk to develop bladder cancer. One study found that out of 193,000 patients who were taking Actos for an average of 2 years, their risk of bladder cancer increased by 40% compared to if they had never taken it.(2)

Patients who are on Actos and are experiencing any side effects are strongly encouraged to discuss them with their doctor and to determine the best course of treatment forward. With all medications, all the benefits and risks must be assessed in consultation with medical professionals.

Extensive product liability experience gives attorney Rudolph F.X. Migliore the resources and knowledge necessary to handle complicated defective prescription drug cases. The Migliore law firm has represented clients in wide range of defective product and drug cases since 1977 and has worked with nationally recognized co-counsel to reach successful settlements for clients.

If you or someone you care about has developed bladder cancer after taking the prescription drug, Actos, please contact the Long Island, NY law firm of Rudolph F.X. Migliore, P.C. at (631) 543-3663 to arrange a free case evaluation. For more information, visit: www.migliorelaw.com/personal-injury/dangerous-medical/actos-diabetes-drug/.
