National Tasigna Lawyers Provide Information About Tasigna Atherosclerosis Claims
Tasigna (nilotinib) is one of the ten most popular cancer treatment drugs in the world, used to treat Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (Ph+CML). Medical research has shown that Tasigna usage leads to the disease Atherosclerosis, the narrowing and hardening of the arties due to build-up of plaque and white blood cells. A 2011 medical report showed that 25% of Tasigna users suggered from vascular problems and 16% of Tasigna users suffered from Peripheral Arterial Disease.
Onder Law's Tasigna Lawyers are handling cases against the maker of Tasigna not because Tasigna caused atherosclerosis, but because the drug's maker knew that it could cause atherosclerosis and lead to even graver health complications, such as amputation of the legs, and then not only chose to not disclose that risk to American Tasigna users, but then engaged in illegal activity so that more Americans would use Tasigna.
What Are the Dangers of Atherosclerosis?
Death, heart attack, stroke, coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, potentially leading to amputation of one or more limbs. Tasigna atherosclerosis has been found to both occur rapidly and severely.
Why Should I Consult with a Tasigna Lawyer?
Money can't suddenly reverse atherosclerosis, a heart attack or stroke, and certainly can't bring back a relative. It can pay for medical expenses and, unfortunately, is often the only way to ssend drug companies a message to stop putting profits before patients.
Tasigna Maker Has History of Illegal Activity
Tasigna is made and marketed by Novartis AG Pharmaceutical. Based in Switzerland, Novartis is one of the multi-national corporations that make up Big Pharma. The company did just over $50 billion in total sales in 2015, and its corporate history shows that Novartis has been willing to overstep the law in order to increase sales. Since 2010, Novartis has paid the US Department of Justice over $800 million tosettle both criminal and civil charges. Furthermore, Novartis has paid similar fines in other countries as a result of illegal pharmaceutical marketing.
2015: Novartis Pays $390 Million in Fines Relating to Tasigna
The United States Department of Justice charged Novartis with paying specialty pharmacies illegal kickbacks to get them to recommend Novartis drugs to persons using Medicaid and Medicare to fill prescriptions for six different Novartis drugs, including Tasigna. Four years after Novartis was fully aware of the Tasigna atherosclerosis risk, after it had changed the Tasigna product packaging to warn Canadian Tasigna users of atherosclerosis, Novartis was so intent on earning hundreds of millions of dollars more from Tasigna that it engaged in illegal activity. The federal lawsuit against Novartis included Tasigna and five other drugs.
