Reportedly, Takeda Pharmaceuticals is facing hundreds of bladder cancer lawsuits as concerns grow that use of the drug for longer than a year may increase the patient’s chances of developing bladder cancer. The FDA released an bladder cancer warning in June 2011 to comment on these suspicions and to inform the public that it reviewed data from a five-year analysis of a ten-year study of the medication. The agency announced that while the research showed no overall increase of bladder cancer in users, it did note an increased risk for cancerous tumors of the bladder in patients taking the drug for more than a year and those exposed to the highest cumulative dose. Because the manufacturer has a duty to warn patients and doctors about the side effects of its products, it may be liable if it failed to properly warn of the bladder cancer risk.
