Actos and its link to bladder cancer discussed by Beasley Allen attorney Andy Birchfield

This week on the Beasley Allen Report, host Gibson Vance welcomes Beasley Allen lawyer Andy Birchfield. Birchfield is head of Beasley Allen’s Mass Torts section, which is currently working on cases involving the drug Actos and its link to bladder cancer. Actos, manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals, was issued a warning by the FDA saying people who have been taking the drug for a year or longer have an increased risk of developing bladder cancer. Interim results from a 10-year American study found long-term Actos users had 40 percent more bladder cancers than people who never took the drug. Bladder cancer kills about 15,000 people per year in the U.S. The drug also may be linked to congestive heart failure.

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!!
