Avastin Recall: The Government's First Death Panel?


Avastin, a drug designed for breast cancer treatment, has been deemed by the federal government as a “[d]rug not shown to be safe and effective in breast cancer patients.” Accordingly, the Roche-Genetech product is being recalled by the federal government.

Senator David Vitter (D-LA) publically denounced today’s recall as “government rationing” to the Wall Street Journal.

If you are a victim of breast cancer, then take heed. Avastin may no longer be available to you in this country. What can you do? Call your elected representatives and voice your opinion. Support the Louisiana Senator’s efforts.
