What is Actos?

Actos, also known as pioglitazone, is a prescription drug used to treat diabetes. Actos controls high blood sugar in patients with type II diabetes by helping to restore the body’s response to insulin. It is a medication you take orally. TheF.D.A. has found this drug has been known to cause bladder cancer in some patients, and the drug does warn about bladder cancer. However, new research has shown that the risk for bladder cancer associated with the use of Actos may be higher than physicians and researchers initially believed.

Actos Warnings

Takeda, the maker of Actos, has added a label warning of the cancer risk, and many countries such as France and Germany have banned the drug due to the dangerous risk of cancer associated with it. According to a new study by researcher Laurent Axoulay, Ph.D., an epidemiologist at Lady Davis Institute of Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, diabetes patients who use Actos for more than two years double their risk for developing bladder cancer. Their findings appear in the journal B.M.J.

Symptoms of Bladder Cancer

Over 70,000 Americans were diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2012, according to the American Cancer Society. It is more common in men than women, and early detection is vital to successful treatment of the disease. Symptoms of bladder cancer include:
