Imitinef Mercilet – Free Blood Cancer Medicine ~ is a Hoax

Many of you might have a received mails similar to the one below.

Subject: Free Medicine for Blood Cancer!!!! Please don’t delete this without forwarding

Dear all,

I have forwarded it to the maximum I can.

Let it reach the 110 crores Indians and the remaining if any.

Put yourself, if you or your brother or sister or your mom and dad or any x, y, z near you, got affected, then how u would have reacted, think it, Forward it.

‘Imitinef Mercilet’ is a medicine which cures blood cancer. Its available free of cost at “Adyar Cancer Institute in Chennai”. Create Awareness. It might help someone.

Forward to as many as u can, kindness cost nothing.

This seems to be a hoax, as it is in most such mails. Quoting this report from www.hoax-slayer.com.

According to this message, India’s Adyar Cancer Institute is distributing, free of charge, a medicine named ‘Imitinef Mercilet’ that cures blood cancer. The message is circulating rapidly via email and is also making its way around the Internet via blogs, forums and social networking websites.

The Adyar Cancer Institute is a real health facility located in the city of Chennai, India and, as its name implies, it indeed specializes in cancer treatment and research. The Adyar Cancer Institute has achieved great results in the treatment and research of cancer since its establishment in 1954.

I contacted a spokesperson at the Adyar Cancer Institute to ask about the veracity of the message. He sent me the following reply:

Only the Part of this message is true. The medicine Imitinef is available free for only qualified persons and not for all. It is free for those who have admitted in the hospital for treatment.

‘Imitinef Mercilet’ is apparently an alternative spelling of the drug Imatinib mesylate which is used in the treatment of some forms of leukemia along with other types of cancer. Imatinib, often referred to a “Gleevec”, has proved to be an effective treatment for some forms of cancers. However, “blood cancer” is a generalized term for cancers that affect the blood, lymphatic system or bone marrow. The three types of blood cancer are listed as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. These three malignancies require quite different kinds of treatments. While drugs (including Imatinib), along with other treatments such as radiation can help to slow or even stop the progress of these cancers, there is currently no single drug treatment that can be said to actually cure all such cancers.

Moreover, it should be noted that Imatinib is available for cancer patients in many different health facilities around the world, not just the Adyar Cancer Institute.

Thus, although there are some elements of truth to this message, its is also potentially misleading and contains inaccurate information.

  11. Ravikumar says:

    Cancer is not a disease, it’s a system gone haywire due to unknown reasons, there is no such thing as permanent cure
    It can be brought under control only, sometimes when it spreads, (metastases) it becomes aggressive and depending on where it has spread to survival rate is negligible.
    The patient doesn’t die of cancer but due to it’s other effects and side effects of the treatment.

    Moreover medicine comes free of cost

    • Very sorry, but as this post mentions, this is a hoax. So answer is no. 🙁

      Your doctor is the best person to suggest a medicine. When in doubt consult another doctor. Don’t believe everything you see on the internet.
