The pharmaceutical companies who make the drugs we take to get better have a responsibility to warn us about potential side effects of these medications. Unfortunately, and sometimes, very tragically, these big pharma companies fail to warn the very people they are ostensibly trying to help of known life-threatening side effects.   Our Florida Januvia Pancreatic Cancer Lawyers in Tampa Bay are investigating lawsuits against diabetes drugs like Januvia because litigation has arisen across several courts alleging that Januvia causes pancreatic cancer in some patients.

Januvia falls within a class of diabetes pharmaceutical prescriptions call Incretin Mimetics. Other incretin drugs include Victoza, Janumet, and Byetta. These type 2 diabetes drugs like Januvia help regulate blood sugar because they contain hormones that make the pancreas produce more insulin. Unfortunately, for pancreatic cancer victims, over-working the pancreas can increase the risk of cancer in the pancreas. Recent litigation has demonstrated that the makers of Januvia and other incretin drugs may have known that innocent patients taking them had an increased chance of developing pancreatic cancer. Side effects are common in the pharmaceutical industry, but what the makers of Januvia failed to do was properly warn diabetes sufferers of the potential for pancreatic cancer from taking these diabetes drugs. The makers of Januvia also failed to warn doctors, hospitals and nurses about the link between Januvia and pancreatic cancer.

Call our Tampa Januvia Pancreatic Cancer Lawyers at The Frank Santini Law Firm for a free consultation. We always have an attorney on stand by that can guide you in the right direction for these Januvia lawsuits. We can help you determine if you have a chance to get a Januvia settlement after pancreatic cancer. Our Florida cancer attorneys want justice for their clients after a Januvia cancer lawsuit.


Now, we must be clear about the implication of Januvia and pancreatic cancer. Januvia does not cause pancreatic cancer in all patients or even most patients taking the drug, because, if that were the case, it would have been taken off the market by the FDA immediately. What has happened, however, is that court cases have been filed stating that Januvia has been linked to an increase chance of pancreatic cancer and Januvia has caused pancreatic cancer in some patients. What the makers of Januvia, Merck, failed to do, was properly warn the diabetes patients taking Januvia of this horrible potential side effect. It is unfortunate that in 2019, diabetes patients have to ask a question like “Does my diabetes medication cause pancreatic cancer?”

While additional studies are needed by the scientific community to pull Incretin drugs like Januvia off the market, pancreatic cancer lawsuits against Januvia continue to grow. At The Frank Santini Law Firm we work with a network of experienced pancreatic cancer attorneys across the country to team up and earn justice for our clients.  The tragic nature of pancreatic cancer is that it is very, very difficult to diagnose because symptoms are often unclear during the first stages. When pancreatic cancer symptoms become obvious, in many cases the cancer has already spread. As a result, unfortunately, when clients come to us that have previously taken Januvia or other Incretin diabetes drugs, they are often dealing with a poor prognosis.
