    Shame on these pharm companies who fool people with these false ads and play with people's lives at any cost. This drug causes serious heart issues and MUST be taken off the market. It is not effective even 1%. Shame on you and your doctors who encourage patients to take them.

    This is a very expensive drug and dangerous. My companion (female) took one treatment and she was dead in less than a month after the drug was given to her.

    After second doss, my brother started to have an internal bleeding that never stopped until he died a week later. DO NOT use this drug, it pushes up your immune system to the level that it starts to attack all body and making a lot of damage to the Healthy non-cancer related cells. I hope they completely withdraw this drug from the market.

    The side effects were the worst. The treatment with this drug was stopped after the first dose.
