Gleevec is a cancer medication that, as of 2011, has been approved for the treatment of ten different cancers. When it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2001, Gleevec was viewed as a “magic bullet” to turn cancer into a manageable condition. However, serious side effects have been found to be associated with Gleevec, and these dampened some of the enthusiasm surrounding this drug.

Gleevec is generically known as Imatinib, and it is manufactured by the Swiss drug maker Novartis for distribution in the United States. It was originally developed for people who are exhibiting symptoms of the Philadelphia chromosome related cancers.

Gleevec adverse reactions are very severe and can undermine its benefit as a cancer drug. Some of these Gleevec adverse effects include:

  • Weight Gain
  • Congestive Cardiac Failure
  • Reduced Number of Blood Cells
  • Neutropenia
  • Thrombocytopenia
  • Anemia
  • Headaches
  • Rash
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Edema
  • Stunted Growth in Children
  • Heart Failure
  • Disrupt Ovarian Function
  • Infertility
  • Bone Problems

Studies on animals have found that Gleevec can cause toxicity to cardiac cells and cause heart failure. Heart failure is a serious condition that can very easily lead to death in many patients.

Gleevec is known by its original name Glivec in most other countries outside of the United States.
