Takeda Sued in a Consumer Fraud Lawsuit Over Actos

Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. is being sued by one of its former medical reviewers in a consumer fraud lawsuit that claims it failed to provide accurate reports to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about hundreds of congestive heart failure incidents associated with itsdiabetes drug Actos.

According to Bloomberg, Helen Ge filed her lawsuit in Massachusetts Federal Court and claims the drugmaker failed to give a serious classification for “non-hospitalized or non-fatal” congestive heart failure cases between late 2007 and January 2010.

“Takeda’s motivation to fraudulently report and under-report the serious adverse events was driven by an economic desire to falsely enhance Actos’ safety profile and to increase sales,” Ge said.

Ge claims that the company violated the federal False Claims Act and similar state statues.
