Januvia and Cancer
Januvia was approved by the FDA in October 2006 for the treatment of diabetes. A study in 2011 found that using Januvia (sitagliptin) to treat type 2 diabetes may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 2.7 times. The study was published in the journal Gastroenterology and compared the incidence rates of pancreatic cancer reported by patients using one of several different diabetes medications. The researchers found there was a 2.7-fold likelihood the disease would be reported by sitagliptin users.
In 2013, research continues to suggest that certain diabetes medications, including brand name drugs such as Januvia, Janumet, Byetta, and Bydureon, are linked to an increased risk of pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis when compared to other diabetes treatment therapies. The results of these independent studies have spurred the FDA to conduct a new investigation of the issue this year. Click here for the latest Januvia lawsuit 2013 research news and FDA updates.
