Januvia & Janumet Recall: Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer Recall Information

Important recall information about Januvia and Janumet:

Januvia & Janumet Pancreatic Cancer Recall

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet issued a recall for Januvia or Janumet despite the drugs being linked to serious and life-threatening complications. Currently, the FDA is investigating studies done on these type 2 diabetes drugs that have linked them to serious conditions such as pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.

On March 14, 2013, the FDA announced new evidence indicating Januvia can cause “pre-cancerous cellular changes” in the pancreas. UCLA researchers determined the drugs increase the mass of the pancreas. Additionally, according to a study published in Gastroenterology, people who take these drugs to help manage diabetes are 2.7 times more likely to develop pancreatic cancer.

Although these investigations are ongoing, Januvia and Janumet are still being prescribed at record rates to patients recently diagnosed with diabetes.
