Is your rep supporting #cancer drug parity? Check here: HR1801 is important. Let your voice be heard.
How to fix? RT @chemoadvisor: 83% of U.S. hematologists/oncologists reported drug shortage in past 6 mo #ASCO13
Need to shift the thinking: Ben Anderson. Research is always seen as "drugs" .. new focus " implementation science" #AACR
"there is misconception that targeted drugs are less toxic" By whom?? #BCSM We needed a posse in this conversation!!!
Patient population at large is infinitely higher than those who are at public hearings re drug approval. #AACR
This is getting interesting. A bit of finger pointing re Avastin. There are docs who are still convinced it's a good drug for BC. #AACR
Difference between taking a drug off market for toxicity v. efficacy. Would prefer "conditional approval" terminology. #AACR
Accelerated drug approval must be followed by confirmatory trials. #AACR (Apologies for not providing names, can't see names on screen)
In setting of #metastatic breast cancer, PFS of 5 months IS significant. Would have wanted to give benefit to that drug. #AACR
For accelerated approval of drugs to actually mean something, there will be failures. Logical. #AACR (treatments should be evidence based)
To personalize medicine, need to identify the driver of tumor to develop targeted treatment. Challenge? Drugs not approved yet. #AACR
Drugs that attack dividing cells, adding new drugs into the mix, then rads. In one decade, childhood leukemia 0% survival to 80%. #AACR
The root of breast cancer treatment. Mastectomy first, then chemotherapy. "Any poison was considered a wonderful cancer drug." #AACR
LOL!!!! RT @nancebeth: Lightweight with drugs. Woke up from anesthesia trying to show everyone my reconstructed boobs #bcsm
