Imitinef Mercilet – Does It Cure All Types of Cancers?

Imitinef often called as imatinib, brand name Gleevec, is used to treat a type of blood cancer called chronic myelogenous leukemia and is very effective resulting in prolonged remissions when taken continuously. Can Imitinef Mercilet cure all Types of Cancers?

There is an assertation rolling in the social media that Imitinef Mercilet can clear all types of cancers.
It is also been highlighted on social media that the medicine is available at Yashoda Hematology Cancer Institute, Pune and Cancer Institute, Adyar, Chennai in free of cost.

HCG Cancer Care responded to this and clarified that there is no single medicine available anywhere in the world, which can be prescribed for all types of cancers and there is no magical medicine in the world that cures all types of cancers. Moreover, any institution can’t randomly distribute one medicine which can make adverse effect on health.

Imitinef Mercilet Medicine for Blood Cancer:

The cancer institute in Chennai stated that the drug name mentioned is a distortion of the drug called ‘imatinib mesylate’ which is used to treat a type of blood cancer called ‘chronic myeloid leukemia’(CML). This drug can be available all over India and is being prescribed at all Cancer Centres and is not exclusive to the Cancer Institute, Adyar, Chennai. The drug support programme is also active in all major cancer centres in the country.
Specifically it is used to manage Chronic Myeloid Leukemiaa form of blood cancer that was a near death sentence for anyone diagnosed with it. It has so far shown outstanding results and is indeed touted as a cure for CML. It is also used for some other cancers, though it results with CML are yet to be replicated elsewhere.

Hence people who come across the misleading message via internet are requested not to circulate such fake news.
