januvia type-2 diabetes pancreatic cancer lawsuitHave Januvia Side Effects Made You or a Loved One A Victim of Pancreatic Cancer?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released data in March of 2013 noting that type-2 diabetes treatment Januvia (sitagliptin) could potentially encourage pre-cancerous altering of cells of the pancreas referred to as “pancreatic duct metaplasia.”

Research conducted by the University of California Los Angeles, and the Gastroenterological Association lead experts to believe that Januvia may increase the risk for development of pancreatic cancer,  thyroid cancer, acute pancreatitis, and other serious side effects. In 2011, experts at UCLA found the likelihood of the most fatal side effect, pancreatic cancer, to be magnified greatly by the use of Januvia by nearly 2.7 times that of patients not treated with Januvia.

When compared to other type-2 diabetes medications, the Gastroenterological Association reports that use of Januvia’s generic form, sitagliptin, would increase the odds of developing cancer of the pancreas to a ratio of 6.7.
