Januvia Linked to Pancreatic Cancer and Other Severe Side Effects

Testing

Several academic studies have linked Januvia to pancreatic cancer and other serious side effects. A 2009 UCLA study initially found the link between Januvia and pancreatic cancer. In a follow up study, researchers reported that patients taking Januvia had over six times the reported cases of pancreatic cancer compared to four other diabetes drugs.

Common Injuries Associated With Januvia

Adults taking Januvia have reported severe side effects and injuries as a result of taking Januvia. The most common injuries include:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Pancreatitis
  • Thyroid Cancer
  • Wrongful death
  • Kidney failure

In addition, users who developed pancreatic cancer or pancreatitis also experienced side effects such as:

  • Weight loss
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Severe abdominal or back pain
  • Jaundice

FDA Warns Consumers About Dangers of Januvia

In 2009, the FDA announced that it planned on revising the prescribing information for Januvia and other diabetes drugs to include acute pancreatitis as a potential side effect. This warning came after the FDA reviewed 88 reported cases of pancreatitis between 2006 and 2009. In these reports, 58 people were hospitalized and 4 people were in the intensive care unit.

In 2011, the FDA threatened Merck because the company failed to conduct an animal study concerning the link between Januvia and pancreatic cancer. The FDA denied the initial proposal by Merck and Merck never sent another proposal to the FDA. In 2012, the FDA demanded that Merck submit a new proposal, but the results still have not been released.

Januvia Lawsuits

Januvia Lawsuits

Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Merck claiming that Januvia is flawed and that Januvia directly increases the risk of pancreatic cancer in users. These lawsuits claim that:

  • Merck did not adequately warn users about the risk of pancreatic cancer when using Januvia.
  • The label on Januvia did not mention pancreatic cancer as a side effect.
  • Despite the warnings and research, Merck still markets Januvia as safe and effective.
  • Merck failed to adequately test the safety of Januvia.
