$2.4 Billion Actos Bladder Cancer Settlement Explained

Popular radio program Ringler Radio, conducted by the nation’s largest structured settlement company, Ringler Associates, welcomes Beasley Allen principal Frank Woodson to discuss the recent $2.4 billion settlement over the diabetes drug Actos.

Actos (pioglitazone), manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and distributed by Eli Lilly and Company, has been under FDA review since September 2010. In June 2011, the FDA issued a warning for Actos, while at the same time drug regulators in France and Germany suspended use of the drug, after it was linked to an increased risk for the development of bladder cancer. Despite the risk of developing bladder cancer, Takeda raked in nearly $16 billion off of Actos prior to going generic in late 2012.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
