  • Causa
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics is conducting a correction for the certain estradiol products. it has been confirmed that the drug fulvestrant (faslodex) may cause falsely elevated estradiol results in the assays listed, which could lead the clinician to misinterpret the patient as pre-menopausal possibly leading to altered or discontinued use of the potential beneficial drug fulvestrant.The risk to health applies to all patients being treated with the drug fulvestrant.
  • Acción
    Siemens’ Estradiol assays may continue to be used to report results for patients not on Fulvestrant therapy; these assays should not be used for patients being treated with Fulvestrant. For patients being treated with Fulvestrant, an alternate method such as LC-MS which is not expected to show cross reactivity to Fulvestrant should be used to measure Estradiol concentrations.
