This is presenting anemia drugs are very risky in cancer patients and this is really defected in your health and personality and two new studies offer extra proof that drugs just like a Procrit and Aranesp that can be habitually utilize by cancer patients.
Dr. Anthony Reiman said “supporting other groups that are recommending great caution in using these drugs for cancer patients, and in routine circumstances they may not be indicated. We hope the drugs would still be made available for people for whom transfusion isn’t a good option — but those are very limited circumstances.”
The result: “The use of drugs to encourage red blood cell formation in cancer patients with anemia increases the risk of death and serious adverse events such as blood clots,”.
“These medications should not routinely be used as an alternative to blood transfusions in patients with anemia related to cancer, unless future studies demonstrate safety and clinical benefits,” Klarenbach said. “While use of medications [instead of blood transfusion] may be appealing to both patients and practitioners, their use is associated with an increased risk of death.”
“At best, these drugs don’t seem to improve longevity,” Reiman said. “They may have some benefits in improving quality of life.” Via
