As "Pancreatitis Is On The Pathway Toward Pancreatic Cancer", Medical Studies Needed To Determine If GLP-1 Diabetes Medications Linked To Cancers Or Malignancies Involving Pancreas
SUMMARY: In the last few weeks there has been an FDA alert about these diabetes drugs as well as a new significant medical journal article about a study concerning Byetta and Januvia which both have to do, in part, with the possible association between pancreatic cancer and the use of Victoza, Januvia, Byetta, etc.
It seems that the pancreatic cancer risk is becoming the real drug safety issue as regards Byetta, Januvia, Victoza, and the other incretin mimetic drugs for type 2 diabetes.
