The drug Bydureon has been linked to a number of lawsuits. If you have a lawsuit related to this drug, you will need the services of certified litigation solicitors like us.

FADA Investigation of Bydureon links with Pancreatic Cancer

According to the FDA, exenatide(the active agent in Bydureon) can cause pancreatic cancer.

The FDA keeps receiving reports that link pancreatic diseases to the use of this drug. Chronic pancreatic diseases such as pancreatitis is a major risk factor for pancreatic cancer.

In 2013, the FDA began a safety investigation as soon as researchers published results from a study establishing the link between Bydureon and pancreatic cancer which begins with pre-cancerous growths within the pancreas.

Settlement Agreement

Since the reports of this research were published in 2013, several lawsuits running into hundreds have been filed by individuals who at one time or the other took Bydureon and have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis or other side effects linked to this diabetes.

AstraZeneca, the manufacturers of Bydureon, reported having entered into a settlement agreement in about 84 out of these hundreds of lawsuits.

The terms of those injuries and settlements were never disclosed.

Where Do We Come In?

As a nationally recognized and certified law firm, our attorneys are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of our clients who have been diagnosed with pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer instead of filing a class action lawsuit against AstraZeneca.

How Do Class Action Lawsuits Work?

The major benefit of a class action lawsuit is that it can be used to resolve several similar and related legal claims at the same time.

In a Class Action Lawsuit, victims join together and fight as a group for compensation.

The solicitors take a cut from the payout and share the rest of the money among the plaintiffs.

Why Individual Lawsuits?

Class Actions come with lots of disadvantages for people with very severe injuries.

Attorneys charge very exorbitant legal fees in most cases, which leaves a very small amount for everyone involved in the class action to share.

By focusing on individual claims, we are able to concentrate on helping them get justice and at the same time maximize their compensation from the company.
