Takeda Found Not Liable in Latest Diabetes Drug Lawsuit

Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., Asia’s largest drugmaker, was found not liable for the bladder cancer of two women who used its Actos diabetes medication in the company’s latest win as it faces thousands more U.S. lawsuits.

A jury in state court in Las Vegas yesterday agreed with the company that Actos didn’t cause the women’s disease, handing Takeda its fifth victory out of six cases that have gone to trial over the drug’s alleged link to bladder cancer.
