California Januvia Pancreatic Cancer Attorney

Januvia and Serious Complications

Sitagliptin, marketed under the trade name Januvia, is a medication used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Just as with other diabetes medications, including Byetta, post marketing studies surrounding Januvia soon revealed an increasing prevalence of adverse side effects. As risks and conditions were continually discovered, medical professionals soon questioned the risk to benefit ratio of Januvia. Additionally, serious conditions such as pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer accounted for more complaints as patients used Januvia for longer periods.

In a recent study conducted by UCLA, researchers examined an extensive FDA database of adverse event reports concerning Januvia. Ultimately, their study indicated that patients using sitagliptin were more likely to develop pancreatic cancer than those who received other forms of diabetes treatment. As the fourth most common cause of cancer related deaths in the United States, pancreatic cancer has an extremely poor prognosis and is often fatal. Such serious consequences can devastate victims and families. This is why we stand firm in our determination to fight for the rights of patients injured by Januvia and obtain the maximum compensation possible.
