France Pulling Diabetic Drug Pioglitazone From Pharmacy Shelves

Bloomberg reported yesterday that the French drug agency is pulling pioglitazone from the market in view of its recent association with bladder cancer.  I mentioned this here May 14.  Pioglitazone is sold in the U.S. as Actos.  I don’t expect the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to follow suit soon.
