LAFAYETTE — Takeda Pharmaceuticals and several subsidiaries were struck with a lawsuit in May by a widower alleging that his wife’s death was caused by Actos health complications that were not properly disclosed to consumers, according to the Louisiana Record.

The widower in question, Pedro Cardenas, claims that Takeda violated Consumer Protection Law in neglecting to properly research, test, and inform consumers of the health risks that Actos could carry in various consumers.

The victim, Betty Cardenas, who suffered from the alleged wrongful death took the drug from 2006 until 2013 to combat the effects of her diabetes. In 2015, she was diagnosed with bladder cancer and succumbed to the disease later that year.

The lawsuit is attempting to receive compensation for damages including attorney fees, wrongful death, and any damages the court views as proper.
