Punjab Bans Vision-Loss Causing Injection

Punjab bans Avastin for eye disease: severe infections, vision loss.

Over the past weekend, the Punjab government took action by recalling a specific batch of injection and initiating a thorough investigation. The investigators are actively searching for the sources of these locally produced injections.

A committee of five members, led by Dr. Asad Aslam Khan, has been appointed to investigate the issue.

According to reports in the local media, it has been alleged that approximately twelve individuals, including Chaudhry Manzoor’s brother and his friend, have experienced vision loss due to these injections.

The interim Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, has assured swift and stringent measures against those responsible for the availability of non-sterile injections, pending the outcome of the inquiry. He has also announced that affected patients will receive free medical treatment.

Dr. Nadeem Jan, the Provincial Health Minister, has confirmed that the government has withdrawn all injections from the market, and legal action has been taken against the suppliers.

Officials have disclosed that the Avastin injection in question was produced by a multinational pharmaceutical company and distributed by reputable firms.
