LAFAYETTE — Takeda Pharmaceuticals and several subsidiaries were recently named in a lawsuit alleging that their drug, Actos, causes bladder cancer in consumers, according to the Louisiana Record.

The lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, claims that Frank P. Griffin, Ohio man serving as the plaintiff, was taking the diabetes medicine for nearly six years during which he began developing bladder cancer.

With Takeda Pharmaceuticals and its subsidiaries being responsible for adequately testing their drug and informing consumers of its health risks, the plaintiff is asserting that the company failed to appropriately protect consumers and therefore should be held responsible for damages from undisclosed health complications.

Damages sought include legal fees, compensation for damages, and further payments as determined by the presiding judge.
