Three victims speak of their plight

Shanghai Daily interviewed the three patients who are still at the Shanghai No.1 People's Hospital after receiving injections of fake Avastin.

Jiang Yue'e, a 78-year-old local woman, said she lost the sight in her right eye following the Avastin injection.

"Sometimes I feel pain and burst into tears," she said. "I won't leave hospital now, even if it promised me free treatment. The hospital failed in its promise to some discharged patients as far as I know."

She said her family may take legal action after three months, the deadline the hospital set on making a decision on compensation and future treatment for the victims.

Li Qiuxiang, a 77-year-old local woman, also complained about pain and loss of sight in her right eye after being injected with the fake drug.

Liu Chen, a 42-year-old driver, said fake Avastin destroyed his life and cost him his job and livelihood.

Liu said the hospital has asked him to leave, but he has refused to do so.

"There are no doctors checking up on me or offering any treatment ," he said.

"I don't want to receive compensation - I just want my eyes cured."
