Took Tasigna and Developed Heart or Atherosclerosis Complications? Read This First
Cancer is on the rise, and some forms of this disease are not only incurable, but they are painful and fatal. Leukemia refers to a type of cancer that affects the blood forming organs such as bone marrow. Leukemia manifests itself in bone marrow producing abnormal or immature red blood cells which then go on to multiply and cause cancerous masses. Chronic myeloid leukemia, or CML is usually restricted to the blood and bone marrow, and it tend to not only be aggressive, but spread very fast. This cancer can also have a genetic component, which lies in the BCR-ABL gene that has found to be abnormal as well as a predisposing factor to the same. Chronic myeloid leukemia is also seen in the spleen, and it is often seen in adults, and very rarely in children. A drug known as Tasigna which was developed by Swiss pharmaceutical company Tasigna has been found to be effective when it comes to treating CML, as it inhibits certain proteins called tyrosine kinase which in turn blocks BCR-ACL gene, thereby halting the development of this fatal cancer. That said, Tasigna has over the years been alleged to be the causative factor when it comes to patients developing chronic peripheral artery disease or arthrosclerosis which can cause blood vessels to narrow on account of plaque buildup, causing heart attacks and strokes. If you took Tasigna and then went on to become diagnosed with atherosclerosis, we may be able to help.

Tasigna and Atherosclerosis – What are My Treatment Options?
All these side-effects refer to the narrowing of arteries in different parts of the body such as the arms, legs, upper thigh, neck artery, and even the heart itself. It is important to note here that once this hardening occurs, you may not be able to reverse it, even if you stop the medication. However, treatment options involve the installation of heart and other artery stents in various parts of the body, the prescription of blood thinners as well as the adoption of lifestyle changes such as a low cholesterol diet as well as exercise in an effort to melt away the buildup of this cholesterol plaque inside the arteries.
Tasigna, Gangrene and Amputation
Another major concern for patients taking Tasigna for their cancer is the possibility that they may develop gangrene due to the blockage of arteries in the hands or legs, which means that the limb isn’t getting blood or nutrients or oxygen due to said blockage. Gangrene sets in as a result, and if left without treatment for a long time, tissue death soon follows, which may prompt doctors to amputate the limb in order to prevent the gangrene from spreading to other parts of the body.
Tasigna Atherosclerosis Warning
Back in 2013, Canadian health authorities received information that over 200 patients who had taken the medication between 2005 and 2013 had developed atherosclerosis. It is interesting to note that this singular side-effect of Tasigna was discovered during clinical trials, but it was concealed so that the drug could receive approval. It is vital to note here that drug development is a very expensive affair, and drug companies will conceal this kind of information just so they can make a return on their investment and then some before letting the public know. This is not only heinous, but it is unethical and illegal, and affected patients deserve justice and compensation in order to be made whole again.
