Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009, Onglyza® (saxagliptin) belongs to a class of Type 2 diabetes drugs called incretin mimetics, also known as GLP-1 therapies.
Used along with a diet and exercise, these drugs can help patients lower their blood sugar and regulate insulin levels. But incretin mimetics have recently come under increased scrutiny after researchers suggested the drugs may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer, which can be especially dangerous and difficult to treat because it is usually not diagnosed until its later stages.
If you or someone you love took Onglyza and were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, you may be eligible for compensation. At Cory Watson Attorneys, our drug injury attorneys hold drug companies accountable for the harm they cause, and we’re here to protect your rights.
