Winning the War on Cancer?

Every cancer advocate I speak with sounds very frustrated with the way the War on Cancer has been conducted by the FDA and drug companies over the past 50 years. I hope that the FDA will hear the frustration and act upon it.

Although I doubt that this one meeting,  held on November 13, 2017, from 9 am-4 pm at the FDA premises in Silver Spring, MD, is going to change the course of the politics of cancer, let’s recognize that it is definitively a step in the right direction. “Partners in Progress”: let’s hope and see.

I wish that they recognize that we will win the War on Cancer only with a complete shift of paradigm, and if we look for substances that can actually cure cancer, not just for substances that can be patented and yield astronomical margins on the price.
