Closing arguments concluded before Memorial Day weekend in an Actos bladder cancer lawsuit in a Nevada state court in Las Vegas. The plaintiffs in the case filed their lawsuit targeted at Actos manufacturer, Takeda, claiming that the diabetes drug caused them to develop bladder cancer.
The lawyer representing the plaintiffs, who are two women in their 80s, argued during closing statements that Takeda failed to warn health care providers and patients about the increased risk of bladder cancer when using Actos. Takeda lawyers countered in their closing argument by asserting that Takeda supplied all safety information that was known to them at that time.
The jury in the Las Vegas Actos lawsuit will soon decide whether the plaintiffs should be awarded a compensatory award, and if Takeda is to pay punitive damages. The Las Vegas Actos lawsuit comes on the heels of a $9 billion jury verdict in an Actos lawsuit heard in Louisiana.
