Cimzia side effects

I attended a research program for the approval of the drug Cimzia to be marketed in Europe and Israel. During the study I received a stroke which caused me to lose sight of my right eye. As a result, I was removed from the research for the reason that it couldn't be ruled out that the PEG may have been the cause for the stroke. Now I'm using the drug Humira which doesn't contain the PEG that can cause a stroke.The difference between Cimzia and Humira is that Cimzia is a drug which is taken once a month compared to Humira that is taken every two weeks but the risk factor of having a stroke doesn't exist (In Humira).

Please be aware of the high risk of using Cimzia
