Citing a lack of proof that the drug actually works, the Food and Drug Administration has formally revoked the approval of the cancer mega-drug Avastin. Avastin is the world’s best-selling drug used to treat cancer, and while prescriptions can still be available, insurance companies will most likely not pay for it. Avastin treatment can cost $100,000 annually.
The efficacy and risks of Avastin have previously been debated by the FDA. A significant increased risk of heart failure had been noted in earlier Avastin studies. The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker is currently investigating cases of heart failure in people who have taken Avastin. Please contact Larry H.
