Byetta and Cancer
Byetta was approved by the FDA in October 2005 for the treatment of diabetes. A study in 2011 found that using Byetta (exenatide) to treat type 2 diabetes may significantly increase the risks of developing pancreatic and thyroid cancers. The study was published in the journal Gastroenterology and compared the incidence rates of pancreatic cancer reported by patients using one of several different diabetes medications. The researchers found there was a 2.9-fold likelihood the disease would be reported by exenatide users, as well as a 4.7-fold increase in the risk of thyroid cancer.
In 2013, research continues to suggest that certain diabetes medications, including brand name drugs such as Byetta, Bydureon, Januvia, and Janumet, are linked to an increased risk of pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, and pancreatitis when compared to other diabetes treatment therapies. The results of these independent studies have spurred the FDA to conduct a new investigation of the issue this year. Click here for the latest Byetta lawsuit 2013 research news and FDA updates.
If you or a loved one used Byetta, and were later diagnosed with pancreatic or thyroid cancer, you may be eligible to receive compensation. Speak with our lawyers today to learn more about filing a Byetta Cancer Lawsuit claim.
