May 22, 2014 – Two defense verdicts in favor of Takeda have been reached in the past week. On May 15, an Illinois state court jury returned a defense verdict in an Actos bladder cancer death case after four weeks of testimony. Additionally today, a jury in state court in Las Vegas agreed with the company that Actos didn’t cause bladder cancer after a two month trial. These verdicts come on the coattails of a jury returning a large verdict for the plaintiff in the Actos MDL.
