The drug Januvia created by Merck & Company was designed to regulate blood sugar levels for Type II diabetes patients. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of the drug Januvia in October 2006. However, it became known shortly thereafter that Januvia users had an increased risk of acute pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
Lawsuits have been filed on behalf of individuals and families around the country naming Merck & Company as the defendant because of the ill-effects of taking Januvia. Cases have been filed in state court in California, federal court in California, federal court in Missouri and in other jurisdictions around the country. Lawsuits have been filed as a result of Januvia leading to pancreatic cancer, acute pancreatitis and in some cases, death. Januvia is a dangerous drug that has caused very serious medical side effects, including many illnesses.
