Lung cancer drug Iressa and patients right to use

2014 Research

While skeptics hurl abuse at alternative therapies and never consider a patient’s right to use a treatment on their own life, it was somewhat bizarre to receive a Press Release from Astra Zeneca saying exactly that! “In case if your medical doctor is not capable to evaluate the mutation level of a tumor, then patients’ right to use the potentially life-changing drugs such as IRESSA to fight against cancer” (Sic) AstraZeneca Chief Medical Officer Briggs Morrison said in a report. (No, I know it’s not English – but that’s the level of Press Release we get!)


European Drug Controllers hope people with lung cancer will be able to use the drug after a simple blood test.
