FDA panel wants to end use of drug on breast cancer | The Columbus Dispatch
#1 Jul 5, 2011
They should keep Avastin on for some patients. It works for some folks. Should it be mass marketed, no. Perhaps control groups more if new folks want to take it. My former mother in law suffered from breast cancer & its effects for 16 years. A former roommate's mom had reoccuring breast cancer. It doesn't run in my family, but who knows if myself or my sister may get it. I have to watch news about the disease in the case my daughter gets it from her paternal grandmother's side. I'm all for keeping patients on WHAT WORKS FOR THEM! If the FDA is worried about side effects then impose a mandatory waiver like I had to sign in the 1990's for Accutane. Don't remove something and the hope it brings to some.
