The medication Actos  is used to treat type 2 diabetes  and works by increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin, a natural substance that helps control blood sugar levels.  Patients taking Actos for more than a year  have an increased risk of bladder cancer, according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) interim review of an ongoing epidemiological study.  The FDA is informing the public that use of Actos for more than one year is associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. Information about this risk will be added to the Warnings and Precautions section of the label for the medicines. The patient Medication Guide for these medicines will also be revised to include information on the risk of bladder cancer.  This safety information is based on FDA’s review of data from a planned five-year interim analysis which showed an increased risk of bladder cancer was noted among patients with the longest and highest  exposure to Actos.  The FDA is also aware of a recent epidemiological study conducted in France which also found  an increased risk of bladder cancer with Actos. Based on the results of this study, France has suspended the use of Actos.  Litigation is ongoing in California with cases transferred to the Los Angeles County Superior Court following an order to consolidate on January 4, 2012. In that order, presiding Judge Lee Smalley Edmon ruled that Judge Jane L. Johnson will oversee the coordinated proceedings.
