London: Diabetes drug Avandia, which has been used by at least 50,000 people in Britain, increases the risk of heart disease by 23 percent and the risk of death by 14 percent.
It found that Avandia could have led to an extra 431 deaths per 100,000 people, an extra 170 heart attacks and an extra 649 cases of heart failure. University of East Anglia pharmacology lecturer Yoon Kong Loke, who led the study, warned that although the drug had been withdrawn in Britain, patients could still be affected by it. IANS
