Adcetris is a medication that is manufactured by Seattle Genetics, Inc. and it was originally approved for use in the United States by the FDA in August of 2011. Adcetris is prescribed to patients who need help treating conditions that include Hodgkin lymphoma and a rare lymphoma known as systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma. At the time at which Adcetris was granted approval for use by the FDA, one person who was using this medication had already been diagnosed with PML, as was documented on the warning literature. However, recent reports have indicated that two other people using Adcetris have since been diagnosed with PML, which is a dangerous infection of the brain that can be fatal. As such, the FDA has taken steps to make the public aware of this potential danger.
