Brain Inflammation Caused by Zinbryta
Zinbryta (daclizumab) gave a ray of hope to Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients whose symptoms had not reacted to standard treatments. But it was revealed that it caused brain inflammation after less than two years on the market in the United States.
The FDA said in a statement that it was looking into allegations of significant inflammatory brain diseases and other side effects linked to Zinbryta. The drug’s side effects can be severe and even lethal.
Biogen Inc. and AbbVie Inc. voluntarily pulled Zinbryta off the worldwide market in March 2018, asking providers to cease prescribing it and transfer current patients to a more beneficial medication.
Side Effects of Zinbryta
Zinbryta, like virtually any medicine, has the potential for negative side effects. Some of the most prevalent Zinbryta side effects include (but are not limited to):
- Inflammation of the brain
- Infection of the upper respiratory tract
- Throat irritation
- Nose congestion
- Lymph nodes swollen
Patients who took Zinbryta may not have been aware of the possible side effects, such as inflammation, that might impact the brain. Patients may file lawsuits against Biogen and AbbVie now that attorneys around the country are examining whether victims are entitled to damages based on accusations that the manufacturers failed to warn of significant toxicity.
As a healthcare patient, you have the right to be told about all of the possible side effects of a medicine, especially something as dangerous as brain inflammation. When a pharmaceutical company takes away your ability to make an educated decision, you are no longer able to make one. Regardless of the sort of Zinbryta harm you suffered, it’s time to evaluate the Zinbryta lawsuit to hold the drug’s producers responsible.
