Avastin Lawsuit

While reading up on current cancer treatments, I read about the Avastin lawsuit, which was brought on by patients injured by Avastin, a cancer medication that was said to be able to interfere with the growth of cancer cells and stunts the spread of these cells in the body of patients.

However, it is recently found out that Avastin has given patients more medical problems than it is said to be able to cure cancer. Some of the side effects include high blood pressure, heart attack, heart failure, bleeding and even holes in the nose, stomach and intestines!

It is very strange to think that while on medication hoping to be cured of a disease, one suffers even more because of the medication that has caused those damages!
