FDA regulator warns drug needed stronger warning, study says 11-25% greater risk of cancer

Per the WSJ, Thomas A. Marciniak, a senior regulator at the FDA, went against his supervisors to advocate stronger warnings about the drugs known as angiotensin receptor blockers, or ARBs, but those warnings went unheeded. 

In 2010, a study published in Lancet Oncology, that looked at five studies involving 68,402 patients and found that people taking ARBs had an 11% greater risk of new cancer overall and a 25% greater risk of new lung cancer, compared with patients who didn’t get the drugs.
