First approved in 2007, Tasigna (nilotinib), is a prescription medication used to treat chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML). Tasigna is part of a class of drugs known as tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). Other TKI drugs include Gleevec (imatinib), also made by Novartis, and Sprycel (dasatinib), made by Bristol-Myers Squibb.
These drugs help treat leukemia by blocking the protein tyrosine kinases—a protein that stimulates the growth of cancer cells. In blocking this protein, TKI drugs like Tasigna help stop leukemia from spreading. Tasigna is prescribed as a twice daily drug and is taken orally in capsule form.
Injured patients and their families are now filing lawsuits against Tasigna manufacturer Novartis, on the grounds that the company failed to warn of the drug’s cardiovascular risks. Studies have allegedly linked the drug to serious cardiovascular side effects like Long QT syndrome, a condition involving irregular heartbeats, and atherosclerosis, a disease that causes plaque to build up in the arteries.
The FDA issued a black box warning (the highest warning they can issue) for Tasigna’s link to QT interval prolongation and sudden death.
