Raptiva, a drug used for treating psoriasis, was pulled from the market on April 9, 2009.
The FDA has reported that Raptiva can cause the development of a condition called progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. This is a neurologic disease that can be fatal.

Physicians are not supposed to issue any new prescriptions.
