Byetta (exenatide) was the first of a new class drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes drugs known as glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists which generated a lot of early excitement with added benefits including a low risk of hypoglycemia and successful weight loss. However, early optimism was halted by reports that Byetta and similar drugs were a possible risk factor for pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
There have been hundreds of pancreatic cancer lawsuits filed against the manufacturers of Byetta, Victoza, Janument, and Januvia. These lawsuits were all transferred the Southern District of California by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation for coordinated and pretrial discovery and proceedings. A ruling by the trial judge in 2015 appeared to end the case until a recent court of appeals decision in favor of the Byetta plaintiffs holding their claims may proceed in federal court.

Read on to learn five things you should know about a Byetta lawsuit from a Nashville Byetta Lawyer.
WHAT IS BYETTA?
Byetta (exenatide) is a medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. A receptor agonist drug means that it binds to a certain receptor and causes the same action as the substance that normally binds to that receptor. Byetta, by binding to and activating the GLP-1 receptor, tells your body to release more insulin, stops the body from releasing more sugar, and slows down digestion.
Byetta is a solution for injection available in pre‑filled pens of 5mcg or 10 mcg. The shots are given by the patient twice a day by injection under the skin in the abdomen, thigh or upper arm. The starting dose of Byetta is 5 mcg, twice a day before a meal. After four weeks, the dose can be increased to 10 mcg depending on how well your blood sugar levels respond to Byetta injections.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH BYETTA?
Incretin mimetic drugs such as Byetta regulate the production of incretin, a type of hormone that stimulates the release of insulin in the body. Byetta does this by injecting patients with a substance that mimics a particular incretin called Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1). Byetta lawsuits allege this process overstimulates the pancreas causing cells in the pancreas to multiply resulting in pancreatic cancer.
