Drug Used To Arrest Bleeding Disorder Linked To Fatal Side Effects

There is a bad side to the WinRho drug, used for treating bleeding disorders. According to Baxter International Inc. and Cangene Corp, the drug has a tendency to trigger fatal side effects, albeit rarely.//

The Winrho drug has been in use in the United States since 1995, and is used to treat a bleeding disorder called Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura, where the blood is deficient with requisite number of platelets, to form clots. Winrho-related complications such as anemia and kidney failure have been reported, owing to rampant death of red blood cells.

Five people were reported to have died of blood clots through out the body, a side effect of the medicine. Subsequently, safety precautions have been included along with the drug. The precautions are available on the Food and Drug Administration’s website today. The symptoms preceding the side effects could be back pain, shaking, chills or fever, which should be immediately reported to the physician.
