Health is wealth. This saying remains true to this day. The hubby and I know at least a couple of loved ones who suffer from Psoriasis and we see that it can really be a serious disease if it is not managed and treated well. Psoriasis is an auto immune-system disease that is characterized by red patches around the skin and Raptiva has been a popular drug taken by people who has Psoriasis and has been found to be related to a deadly brain infection that is named Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalophathy or PML.

Warnings have been sent out about this medicine, people have been told about the possible effects. It will be best to have your doctor’s opinion about this issue. Investigation was initiated by the United States Food and Drug Administration on deaths that are possibly related to PML.
