Counterfeit Drugs Putting Patient’s Lives at Risk

The food and drug administration announced on Tuesday that fake vials of cancer medicine Avastin were sold to doctors and clinics in California, Texas and Chicago.

During tests the active ingredient in Avastin was not found which is used to treat several types of cancer. According to FDA officials the counterfeit drug Avastin was imported from Britain.

Some other drugs like Viagra, the cholesterol medicine Lipitor and the weight-loss pill Alli were also found to be fake versions of the original medicine.
