Picato Class Action Canada
Picato Class Action
Rice Harbut Elliott LLP has commenced a class action lawsuit, representing Canadians who were prescribed and used Picato (ingenol mebutate). Picato is a prescription drug used to treat adults with actinic keratosis. It is available in two strengths: 0.015% and 0.05%.
Current Status: The Certification Hearing in this matter is schedule for December 14, 2022, for 3 days.
Health Canada has issued a Summary Safety Review concluding that there may be a link between Picato and the risk of skin cancer.
Our firm is seeking compensation for persons who were prescribed and used Picato between 2013 and present. Damages will be sought for individuals who were diagnosed with cancer and individuals who used Picato without a cancer diagnosis. The latter group may be entitled to compensation pursuant to provincial consumer protection legislation.
