Invokana & Invokamet Studies

Independent studies show the diabetes drug Invokana increases the risk of amputations. Patients with type-II diabetes who take a class of drugs known as sodium–glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors will now need to take in consideration great risks related to limb loss after studies showed these medications surprisingly increase the risk of amputation.

FDA Boxed Warning

FDA

In May 2017 the FDA issued an official safety announcement about increased risk of leg and foot amputations with the diabetes medicine canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR)

“Based on new data from two large clinical trials, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has concluded that the type 2 diabetes medicine canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR) causes an increased risk of leg and foot amputations.”

U.S. Food and Drug Administration

“Drugs to treat diabetes have been undergoing a positive transformation in the last three or four years. It used to be we would test diabetes drugs to see if they lowered glucose levels and did not cause heart problems. Now, we test drugs and expect to see them not only lower glucose but improve cardiovascular health. It’s been extraordinary. But, now we might be finding out that there are glitches along the way.”

Dr. Bruce Neal, lead investigator in the study and professor of medicine for University of New South Wales Sydney

One study, "Canagliflozin Cardiovascular Assessment Study or CANVAS" first posted on December 15, 2009, and then updated in July of 2017, stated “The data shows that amputations of the toes and forefoot—and fewer above the ankle—occurred about twice as often in subjects taking Invokana than taking placebo.”

The Endocrine Web Magazine posted an article in May 2017: "The risks were twice as high in those treated with the drug"

Over a year's time, the amputation risks were evaluated to be 7 of every 1,000 treated with 100 milligrams of the drug, versus 3 of every 1,000 on placebo.

“The decision, announced May 16, was not unexpected. It therefore came as no surprise.”

J. Michael Gonzalez-Campoy, MD, PhD, FACE, medical director and CEO of the Minnesota Center for Obesity, Metabolism and Endocrinology

Invokana Lawsuit

Manufacturers of the diabetic drug Invokana FAILED to adequately research their products side-effects and properly warn patients and doctors about limb loss risks associated with the drug.

INVOKANA® (canagliflozin)‎, Johnson & Johnson'a drug for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes was first approved for sale in March 2013 and has been prescribed in U.S. over 5 million times. Since Invokana was released, an unknown number of patients were subjected to dangerous kidney failures and limb loss side effects without knowledge of the actual risks before taking the drug.

Invokana lawsuits set forth claims of fraudulent concealment, defective design, and negligence, among other claims.

Invokana Amputations Warning

FDA adds “Black Boxed Warning” to Invokana label.

INVOKANA AMPUTATIONS WARNING

After reviewing data from two large clinical trials, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concluded that the type 2 diabetes medicine canagliflozin, the active ingredient in Invokana, causes an increased risk of leg and foot amputations.

As a result, the FDA is requiring its most stringent warning, the Boxed Warning, be added to Invokana labels regarding the risk of amputation.

Clinical trial results showed that patients treated with Invokana were twice as likely to suffer amputations when compared to nonusers.

Injuries included amputations of the toe and foot, as well as the leg both below and above the knee. As the FDA safety announcement of May 2017 describes, some patients in the study experienced more than one amputation, sometimes affecting both limbs.

“Based on new data from two large clinical trials, the FDA has concluded that the type 2 diabetes medicine canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR) causes an increased risk of leg and foot amputations.”

Invokana Amputations

What is Invokana?

INVOKANA® (canagliflozin) is a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes, manufactured by Janssen, Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson

Invokana is an oral medication for type 2 diabetes that helps to lower blood glucose levels by encouraging the body to filter out more glucose from the blood and excrete it via the urine.

Invokana is in a class of drugs called sodium-glucose transport protein 2 (or SGLT2) inhibitors. These drugs work by increasing the amount of glucose that gets passed out in the urine. When blood passes through, the kidneys filter glucose out of the blood and the SGLT proteins then help reabsorb glucose back into the blood. SGLT2 proteins are responsible for 90% of the glucose that is reabsorbed, so by blocking the action of these proteins, less glucose is reabsorbed and so more glucose is excreted via the urine.

Invokana was first approved by FDA and released to U.S. market in March 2013

The first FDA revision on Invokana’s label was issued on June 2016, when the FDA strengthened kidney warnings for diabetes medicines canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet)

In May of 2017 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concluded that the type 2 diabetes medicine canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR) causes an increased risk of leg and foot amputations.
