Costly eye drug and far cheaper alternative have similar side effects -study

LONDON (Reuters) - Injecting Roche's cancer drug Avastin as a cheap eye treatment does not appear to increase deaths or serious side effects, according to an independent study that is likely to fuel a row over the medicine's unapproved use. An analysis of nine clinical trials - including three unpublished ones - concluded that health policies favouring the much more expensive eye drug Lucentis over Avastin were not supported by current evidence. The study was published on Monday in The Cochrane Library journal, which is produced by the Cochrane Collaboration, a non-profit group that reviews trial data to assess the value of drugs #facebook #China #Medicine #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #Latin America #Mexico #opinion
