((Narr:Narr: For some breast cancer patients the drug Herceptin is a life-saver. But today, the drug manufacturer Genentech put out this Dear Doctor letter to cancer specialists nationwide warning of serious adverse effects related to the use of its drug, Herceptin.
Genentech says it played a part in the deaths of 15-women and caused serious complications for 47-others.
Doctors prescribe Herceptin for patients in the advanced stages of breast cancer. Doctor Linda Vidhat specializes in breast cancer at New Yorks Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. She says no drug is completely risk-free and will continue to offer Herceptin to those patients who need it.

(soundbite) (1:01:09-:20) Font: Dr. Linda Vidhat,Columbia Presbyterian

Hospital. herceptin is a safe drug. The important thing to do is to try to figure out why some of these adverse effects occurred and then institute measures to really prevent them.

(standup 1:05:21-:34) Font: Teri Okita

The FDA approved Herceptin in late 1998 and since then, about 25-thousand patients have been treated with the drug. And, after hearing about the warning, the FDA says Herceptin is still a safe drug.

(soundbite) (1:00:38-:51) Font: Dr. Linda Vidhat, Columbia Presbyterian

Hospital I think that the important thing to remember is that herceptin was billed as the miracle drug which was very non-toxic, and I think we all have to take a step backward, especially the public, and know that everything has side-effects, everything has risks.
Narr: And it is a risk many breast cancer patients will tell you..they are willing to take. TOCBSNewsNY ))
