Psoriasis Drug that Kills Patients

Have you heard the news that there's actually an FDA warning out there that Raptiva, the Psoriasis drug available, can actually cause serious brain infection called Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). That's a pretty scary warning if you ask me! I happened to read about this warning on the Raptiva PML website and thought it would be worth passing along. Anytime there's a warning of any kind, especially one of such seriousness it's important that we get the word out!

It's really a scary thing, something that has already killed two people and may have affected more than that. It's also being linked to meningitis, immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, and other life-threatening infections. It's important to know that if you or someone you know has taken something like this and been effected you may be able to get financial compensation. You can learn more on the RaptivaPML website as well as the website. I would encourage you to head over there today and learn more about the Raptiva side effects and pass the word along as well.
