Adcetris Brain Disease & Lung Injury Lawsuits

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) believes that the anti-lymphoma drug brentuximab vedotin—sold under the brand name Adcetris—might cause Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy, pulmonary toxicity, and other side effects, resulting in  symptoms such as impaired speech, vision loss, and paralysis. The Rottenstein Law Group, an Adcetris law firm, compassionately advocates for those who have suffered Adcetris side effects. If you’ve taken Adcetris and believe it harmed you, contact RLG for a free, confidential legal consultation immediately. We will evaluate your case and remain on the lookout for Adcetris recalls and Adcetris class action lawsuits.

What Is Adcetris and What Is It Prescribed For?

Adcetris is the brand name for the drug brentuximab vedotin. Made and sold by an American pharmaceutical company, Seattle Genetics, Inc., this prescription medication is used to treat two conditions: Hodgkin’s lymphoma and anaplastic large cell lymphoma. The FDA approved Adcetris in August 2011 as an intravenous infusion. As of January 2012, 2,000 people had received Adcetris lymphoma treatment.

Adcetris is an “antibody-drug conjugate,” which means it consists of a drug with an antibody attached to it. The antibody binds the drug to cancer cells and then the drug attacks them. This process allows targeted cancer therapy with fewer side effects than other methods. Adcetris might cause dangerous side effects that could affect the lungs and brain. If you or a loved one has taken Adcetris and believe it caused an injury, contact RLG for a free, confidential legal consultation immediately. We will evaluate your case and remain on the lookout for Adcetris recalls and Adcetris class action lawsuits. RLG might be the Adcetris law firm you have been looking for.
