Tell Congress to Support the Compassionate Care Act!

FDA currently allows the use, on a case-by-case basis, of an investigational drug outside of a clinical trial to treat a patient with a serious or immediately life-threatening disease or condition who has no comparable or satisfactory alternative treatment options. However, FDA often denies this access. A new bill, to be introduced shortly, would change FDA’s “compassionate use” rule so that individuals who have exhausted all conventional cancer treatments can have all of their treatment choices honored without needing to obtain federal government approval—essentially removing FDA from the process.

Under the Compassionate Care Act, any patient diagnosed with a terminal illness, for whom a physician determines that FDA-approved drugs are likely not curative, may obtain access to any experimental drug upon execution of an informed consent without the need for FDA approval.

Please ask your representative to support the Compassionate Care Act when it is introduced, and ask your senators to introduce similar legislation in the Senate.
