ROCHESTER, N.Y. — In a segment with Rochester First, Dr. Jeff Harp spoke of the research that indicates that Actos use is frequently linked to the development of bladder cancer.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has publicly acknowledged a relationship between Actos and bladder cancer, claiming that taking the drug for over one year may be associated with a heightened risk of bladder cancer. The risk has grown to such a degree that all Actos prescriptions must be labeled with a warning about the risk of bladder cancer.
A five-year review of medical data showed that while Actos use did not carry an overall risk increase of bladder cancer, an increase risk was reported among long term users. The medical data observation will continue for an additional five years as a ten-year epidemiological study.
European countries have followed suit with France and Germany suspending drug use or recommending that no new prescriptions be issued, respectively.
The FDA has recommended that current or past sufferers of bladder cancer refrain from using Actos and that any health complication symptoms be reported to your doctor immediately.
