Actos Whistleblower Lawsuit Filed

View all
Ramona Roberts6 years ago

A whistleblower lawsuit filed against the manufacturer of Actos claims that the company failed to provide accurate reports about the risk of congestive heart failure associated with the diabetes medication. The lawsuit was filed by a former company medical reviewer; details of the case just recently became public.

Details of the Actos Whistleblower Lawsuit

Like all drug makers, the manufacturer of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, is required to provide an accurate representation of any adverse events to regulators through the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System.

The lawsuit claims that when Actos came under scrutiny for its serious side-effects, the company underreported cases of congestive heart failure to the FDA and asked its medical examiners to downplay the risks. The complainant says she was terminated for failing to comply with this order. The lawsuit also claims that the company downplayed the link between Actos and bladder cancer.
