Studies Link Diabetes Drugs to Pancreatic Cancer and Pancreatitis Among Other Side Effects

Several studies have shown that the class of diabetes drugs Byetta falls in, known as incretin mimetics, increases the risk for pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis, among other issues.

Statistics

The first study, published in the journal Gastroenterology, found that patients using the injectable drug Byetta had an increased risk of pancreatic cancer. According to reports filed to the FDA, researchers found that the reported cases of pancreatic cancer in Byetta patients was almost three times that of other diabetes treatment options.

In addition, another study published in the Journal of American Medical Association studied over 1,200 diabetic patients who were hospitalized with pancreatitis compared to a control group who did not have the condition. Researchers found that 87 patients that had a prescription for Byetta or the oral drug Januvia, also had pancreatitis, while only 58 people had a prescription for one of the two drugs and did not have pancreatitis.

FDA Warns of Severe Side Effects Associated with Byetta

After 30 Byetta users were diagnosed with an acute form of pancreatitis, the FDA finally issued their first warning in October 2007. Just a year later, the FDA released a second warning after 6 more Byetta users developed pancreatitis, which resulted in two deaths.

In 2011, after the study in Gastroenterology was published, the FDA started to get even more involved. Less than two years later, the FDA announced it was officially investigating Byetta and other similar products after an unpublished study found the drugs could potentially cause pre-cancerous changes in the pancreas known as pancreatic duct metaplasia.
