Novantrone is one of the only four drugs approved to treat multiple sclerosis (MS) in the United States. Novantrone is known generically as Mitoxantrone, and it is an antineoplastic agent. Although it is notable for its ability to treat MS, it is also used to treat a number of kinds of cancer, such as metastatic breast cancer, actute myeloid leukemia, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The primary Mitoxantrone side effect that results in Novantrone litigation is its tendency to cause congestive heart failure. It is manufactured by Immunex Corporation Serono Inc.
Interestingly, all of the research that led to the approval of Novantrone for treating Multiple Sclerosis occurred in Europe. Usually, in order for a drug to be approved, the research has to take place in the United States. However, even before approving the drug, the FDA was seriously concerned about the side effects. Numerous studies have reported on caridace complications including congestive heart failures.
Studies have shown that a statistically significant amount of patients develop a diminished left ventricular fraction (LBEF), which is one measure of a heart's blood pumping strength. Such a diminished strength can potentially lead to more serious cardiovascular complications. Another study has reported two deaths from congestive heart failure.
Currently, Novantrane's label was updated to reflect the new risks surfacing in regard to congestive heart failure.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as a result of taking Novantrane, you might be eligible for compensation, which a Novantrane law firm can help you secure. Contact one of our unsafe drug lawyers today to schedule a free and confidential case consultation.
