Online PR News – 12-May-2012 – Hayward, California – Taylor Solano & Associates, known for taking on pharmaceutical companies for putting out dangerous drugs, has now focused its sights on Takeda Pharmaceuticals in the Northern District of California Federal Court, case number C12-02380. Takeda has come under fire for its distribution of Actos, a diabetic medicine which researchers believe causes bladder cancer. The FDA on June 15, 2011 announced that using Actos for more than twelve months increases the risk of bladder cancer. The French have recently banned the usage of Actos because of the high risk. Hundreds of lawsuits around the country have been filed against the drug maker, prompting the Federal Courts to consolidate all of the cases into a Multi-district litigation (MDL) and have all the cases heard in Louisiana.
Attorney Andree Taylor of Taylor Solano & Associates from the firm's Hayward, CA office, believes that Takeda Pharmaceuticals took advantage of his clients.
"Takeda knew that Actos caused cancer since 2005, and through its acts and omissions concealed this fact from the general public.", says Taylor.
Taylor, who recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of his clients in the Northern District of California who took Actos for six years and was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer and Arrhythmia, is calling for justice. "Had my clients knew of all the facts, which Takeda concealed from the public, my clients would not have chosen to use Actos, instead their trust lead them to pain and agony. Takeda needs to pay for what they have done", exclaims Taylor.
At the prospects of going up against another big drug company, Taylor says, " We have litigated against corporations like Microsoft in the past. We are used to fighting the big guys for your everyday person. I have never backed down from a legal fight in my life and I look forward to putting Takeda to task and bringing them to justice. If they send us to Louisiana, then we will fight them in Louisiana. Besides, Cajun food is pretty good."
