A lawsuit filed by a physician who worked under contract for Takeda, the maunufacturer of Actos, a diabetes medication, alleges that the pharmaceutical company failed to accurately report cases of bladder cancer. The lawsuit was filed by Dr. Helen Ge who also asserts in the lawsuit that Takeda failed to report all cases of heart failure to the FDA. She claims that when she approached Takeda with the accusation that the company was underreporting cases of Actos heart failure and congestive heart failure events to the FDA , her contract with the firm was abruptly terminated.
