In June 2011 the FDA warned the public of the dangers associated with Actos. It was found that Actos usage for more than 1 year leads to an increased risk of bladder cancer. To date, there have been more than 1500 lawsuits filed in the Actos multidistrict litigation, which is currently pending.
Aside from these MDL cases, there are also hundreds of other Actos cases pending in state courts across the country. Earlier this year the first Actos case was settled in California.
