Byetta® and Januvia® Linked to Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

A drug safety communication from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that officials from the agency intend to study the potential link between pancreatic cancer and Type 2 diabetes drugs like Byetta and Januvia.

In addition to citing that both of these drugs may double the risk of acute pancreatitis, the FDA has also warned that Byetta and Januvia may increase the risk of potentially fatal pancreatitis. But despite warnings of pancreatitis on drug packaging for Byetta and Januvia, the labels fail to warn patients of a potential pancreatic cancer risk.
