SACRAMENTO - The Senate Health committee will consider legislation that
would streamline access to experimental treatments for terminally ill
AB 159, also known as the "Right to Try Act", would allow manufacturers to
provide, and physicians to prescribe, a drug, biological product, or device
not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when the patient
has a serious or immediate life-threatening condition. Insurance carriers
would have the option to cover such treatments, but are not required to do
Cool! When I had a terminal family member I started a thread on this. If
we already know what will happen if they stay the course, and we have a
willing patient, why not try some wacky theoretical medication or therapy?
Document carefully what was taken and what happened. We create an online
database of some sort, then let a million amateur dataminers try to find a
pattern. That way we shuffle off this mortal coil at least contributing
something to humanity, even if it is just one more negative data point.
It is easy to imagine a guy with only months to live (and good indications
those months will suck) saying to his bride: We should try something,
anything. Hell Mary, we know what happens if we do nothing.
