Three Publications Discuss Bladder Cancer Concern for Actos

May 27, 2012

A recent study published in Pediatrics determined that nearly one in four American adolescents may soon develop Type 2 diabetes, a sharp increase from demographics of just ten years ago. This finding couldn’t come at a worse time, as medical professionals and Type 2 diabetes patients and their families worry about the medium-term effects of Actos (pioglitazone).

 

Actos, a commonly prescribed medication used to combat Type 2 diabetes, has been sharply criticized in a Kaiser Permanente study, a French Medicines Agency study, and a repot by the American Diabetes Association report. In each of these publications, researchers found a correlation between pioglitazone, an active ingredient in Actos, and bladder cancer. Moreover, strong reason exists that as cumulative pioglitazone treatments increase – usually around the one-year mark – the probability of a patient developing bladder cancer jumps significantly, as much as 40 percent.
