President Trump signed bill Wednesday which allows terminally ill patients access to experimental medical treatments not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Good news?

No because they shouldn't be charging for experimental meds to begin with.

A very good step forward I’d say. What’s there to lose when someone is at the end of the rope... all other options exhausted? Good job!

Great news, as long as he’s requiring insurance company’s to cover the cost. Which I doubt.

Plan design is most often selected by the payor...the payor in the US is most often the employer, or the govt...the plan design determines whether experimental will be covered...not the insurance company.

Ebola....I’m not disagreeing with you, I’m simply clarifying that the payor is making that choice, not the insurance company in most cases.

Great, however it’s not going to make the slightest difference. Drug companies aren’t obligated to provide the drugs, insurance won’t cover them, and drs aren’t obligated to prescribe them. Trump just offered terminally ill patients false hope.

Its actually the “I’ve worked in the drug/device industry for 10+ years” spin... specifically in clinical trials management.

I know how companies develop new drugs, how and why clinical trials are run, how experimental drugs are paid for, the risk a company would put its trials and patients in by providing an experimental treatment outside of a clinical trial... and about a pathway that already exists... www.fda.gov/ForPatients/Other/ExpandedAccess/ucm20041768.htm

What do you know about the subject? Aside from what Donny told you?

That’s easy for you to say since Obama isn’t in office.

I voted no, because ‘it’s too soon to tell’ wasn’t an option. Trump doesn’t factor, the legislature passed the bill and deserve the credit (or blame).

I voted no because I read an in-depth article on the law awhile back. Did you know drug companies could already give patients unapproved experimental drugs before this law? They could, they just had to show the drug wasn’t quack medicine that made most patients who took it sicker. It didn’t have to make them better, and it could make them sicker, it just couldn’t be likely to make patients worse.

So, all the new law really changes is to allow drug companies to sell drugs it knows will make patients sicker. It makes quackery legal.

I don’t like seeing vulnerable people cheated, so I voted no, but if evidence shows it helps some people and doesn’t hurt anyone, I’ll gladly admit I was wrong.
