FDA to test link of two transplant drugs with central nervous system disorder

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is going to conduct some tests in order to find out if two transplant drugs have anything to do with a rare central nervous system disorder.

U.S. health regulators suspect Roche's CellCept and Novartis' Myfortic to cause progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML).

Both drugs are used to prevent rejection in organ transplantation. Its increasing application in treating lupus nephritis has demonstrated more frequent complete response and less frequent complications.

The FDA learned from Roche, a Swiss global health-care company, that there were 10 cases of patients who had developed PML. The complaints came from transplant patients as well as others with the autoimmune disorder lupus.

Now the fate of the drugs is in the FDA’s hands, while at least 500,000 patients worldwide can’t live without them.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
