Discussions that mention gleevec

Cancer board


I just heard on the news about a new drug that was released today called Gleevec. They said it is the biggest advancement in caner treatment ever. At least for certain kinds of Leukemia. They think it will be used for other cancers as well. You can read about it here [url="http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2001/NEW00759.html"]http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2001/NEW00759.html[/url]
On the news, they said it would cost about $2,000.00 a month, but the drug company will give it free to anyone who makes less than $45,000.00 a month, & will provide it on a slide basis for others.
