FDA Says Onglyza Label Should Include Heart Failure Risk, Reports Lawsuitsettlementnews.com

JERSEY CITY, N.J., June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, announced today that the Type 2 diabetes medication, Onglyza, is linked to an increase in possible heart failure, in which the FDA panel has requested a warning on its label. Onglyza has already been the target of potential side effects of lawsuits involving risks of pancreatitis as well as possible cancer. Onglyza was designed to help people with Type 2 diabetes (who do not suffer from diabetic ketoacidosis) by helping controlling high blood sugar. Onglyza effectively controls blood sugar, and unlike other diabetes medications, the drug does not encourage weight gain. Despite the positive effects of Onglyza, some doctors are concerned over reports of the possibility of increased risk of pancreatitis and cancer (pancreatic and thyroid cancer). Currently, there are hundreds of filed lawsuits from people who have developed pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer, alleging that the company failed to warn patients of the risks associated with the drug. There has also been a SAVOR study involving about 16K patients, with results that show that there was a 27% difference in heart failure hospitalizations between the Onglyza group and the control group. The FDA panel voted in favor of adding the information about the risk of heart failure to the label, however, they are not pulling it from the market at this time. Experts now expect patients who have been hospitalized, or family members who have died of heart failure, will begin to pursue lawsuits against Onglyza's manufacturer, AstraZeneca, now that the FDA label has been mandated.

 

Chris Janish, CEO of MTS, commented on the recent reports and concerns over Onglyza, "It is disappointing that the new data shows a serious side effect in patients taking Onglyza and possible heart failure. We have seen this before with other blockbuster drugs, and we remain here to assist patients, or their family members, who have been linked to heart issues at the taking of Onglyza. The lawyers in our network are at the forefront of the Onglyza litigation, and can provide patients and their families with a free case evaluation."
