Tasigna (nilotinib), a cancer treatment in wide use across the globe, has been linked to the deadly vascular condition known as atherosclerosis. Marked by a narrowing of the veins, Tasigna atherosclerosis emerges rapidly with little warning and can result in tissue death leading to limb amputation, coronary artery disease, and death. Research first showed a connection between Tasigna and atherosclerosis in 2011, but atherosclerosis has not been added to the Tasigna side effects list. Many Americans have consented to take this powerful cancer drug to treat Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia without knowledge of serious and potentially life-threatening Tasigna side effects.
Tasigna, a product of the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis, was approved by the FDA in 2010. Tasigna atherosclerosis lawsuits are not the first legal troubles Tasigna has caused for the company. In 2013, Novartis paid $390 million to resolve a Justice Department case for the payment of illegal kickbacks to physicians prescribing Tasigna and misbranding and false advertising of the drug. Perhaps only issuing Tasigna atherosclerosis warnings when forced to do so, Novartis acknowledged Tasigna vascular side effects in Canada in 2013 but has never warned the American medical community. Tasigna maintains its position as a top-ten selling cancer drug worldwide, bringing Novartis more than $1.7 billion in sales in 2016.

Novartis warned Canadians of the risk of cardiovascular Tasigna side effects in 2013, yet has never warned American consumers. Read for full information on Tasigna complications including cardiovascular problems such as rapid-onset atherosclerosis, peripheral arterial disease, limb amputation and death. Read full Tasigna complications information.
The risk of Tasigna atherosclerosis was detected in clinical studies published in 2011, and a Tasigna atherosclerosis warning was added to the drug's warning label in 2013. However, many Americans are unaware of the risk of Tasigna atherosclerosis and continue to consent to using this powerful cancer drug without full knowledge of the risks. Rapid onset atherosclerosis from Tasigna can result in tissue death and the need for limb amputation, as well as other cardiovascular problems, peripheral arterial disease, and death.
