In the absence of a Januvia recall, Januvia lawyers are actively following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s investigation of a class of type-2 diabetes drugs known as incretin mimetics. The first public health warning about this particular medication was issued in 2009, after the agency became aware of its link to pancreatitis. The findings of an unpublished study released in March 2013 later showed the potential for drugs like Januvia and Byetta to cause changes to cells in the pancreas that could lead to cancer. This information strengthened the FDA’s call to action in studying the dangers of incretin mimetics.
In April 2013, the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices (ISMP) released information from the agency’s database of adverse event reports that revealed information vital to Januvia lawsuits. Over a 1-year period ending on June 30th, 177 reports of Januvia pancreatitis were recorded as well as 18 Januvia pancreatic cancer cases and 1 instance of thyroid cancer.
A growing number of plaintiffs have already come forward to file cases involving incretin mimetics as research continues to unfold. As of July 2013, court records showed that at least 53 lawsuits had been filed in U.S. federal courts on behalf of diabetics who suffered injuries stemming from the medications. A motion to centralize these claims has been brought to the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), but the Panel has not yet reached a decision about whether to create a federal proceeding.
Should you pursue a case against the makers of Januvia, you can rest assured that all this information will be taken into consideration by Bernstein Liebhard LLP, and that you will be treated fairly by one of the Firm’s attorneys.

When you pursue a Januvia lawsuit alleging pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis or thyroid cancer, it is vital that you keep your attorney updated on any information related to your medical care. This could mean medical appointments and related expenses or days absent from work or school due to your alleged Januvia side effect, as well as all medical records related to your condition. This information may serve as vital evidence in your Januvia lawsuit.
You should call a Januvia lawyer as soon as possible. All states have established statutes of limitations, which detail how long plaintiffs are eligible to file product liability lawsuits. If you fail to file your claim by your state’s deadline, you will no longer be able to seek compensation. The first thing a Januvia attorney will do is research the statute of limitations regulations that apply to you.
If you or a loved one developed pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis or thyroid cancer as a result of taking Januvia, you may be eligible to seek compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, permanent disabilities, loss of quality of life as well as emotional distress caused by the medical product that caused your injury.
