Dangerous Hepatitis C Drugs Cause Life-Threatening Injuries
November 10th, 2015 | By: Walker Advertising | Posted in: From the CEO
Dangerous Hepatitis C drugs from AbbVie could cause life-threatening liver injuries in people with advanced forms of liver disease, federal health officials warned. The two drugs, Viekira Pak and Technivie, have been linked to numerous cases of severe liver damage in patients who already had liver cirrhosis, according to the FDA.
Manufacturer AbbVie will be required to add new warning labels, noting the risk to patients who already have liver damage due to Hepatitis C.
One again, we have a case where a drug intended to help people may have actually hurt them instead. Sadly, these cases are all too common.
