Avastin Lawyers Helping Victims
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently revoked its approval of Avastin (bevacizumab) for treatment of breast cancer. The federal agency withdrew approval after deciding that the drug's potentially fatal side effects outweighed the little benefit it gave to most breast cancer patients. Unfortunately, some women who took Avastin suffered deadly side effects, including heart attacks and heart failure.

Bevacizumab Injection Side Effects Breast Cancer News
The FDA revoked its approval of Avastin for treatment of breast cancer for two convincing reasons. Several independent studies found that bevacizumab has little or no benefit to women battling breast cancer. Further, new research has linked Avastin to potentially fatal heart-related side effects.
Avastin's dangerous side effects include:
- Heart failure
- Heart attack
- Bleeding and hemorrhaging
- Extremely high blood pressure
- Perforations in the stomach, intestines and nose
The potentially fatal side effects prompted the FDA to warn that bevacizumab has failed to demonstrate safe and effective use for treatment of breast cancer.
