News On 6/KOTV: President Trump signs the Right to Try Act.The legislation gives terminally ill patients the right to use experimental medications that have not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.



iotwreport.com...


The "pipeline" that approves new drugs can take anywhere for 7 to 14 years to get an "okay" from the FDA for use on patients. This Act bypasses the FDA to give (perhaps) a last chance to people who are dying.


Now I put this in the Pit because I know someone or someones will hate it because Trump.

But really, it's a good idea who's time is long overdue.

Now if insurance companies would actually pay for these treatments we would be getting some where. This only benefits the rich that can actually afford the prices for these experimental treatments.

Small step in the right direction but not enough.

People advocate for having the right to die, so why not this?

It's not so different really. For some, this could save their lives, and for some, it could destroy what life they have left. But they are dying anyhow, and the knowledge gained will be useful anyway.

The treatments might be provided to patients for no cost as part of experimentation.

Thank you again Mr. Trump. We need this. Too many people die waiting for treatments to be approved.

I really , really hope this is true.
Gives hope to a lot of folks that at this time have very little
This one may hit home in the future .(If you know what I mean)
Thank you President Donald Trump.

I expect in many cases the drug companies who have the drugs in experimental phases will pick up much of the cost for the data gained alone. It's a bit like getting some advance human trial information.

You know, I was about to give Trump a thumbs up on this, then I thought about it.

What does this mean? Is this to help sick people? Or is this just opening a door for big pharma to experiment on people without worrying about repercussions?

Who knows what drugs they’ll try on people that are going to die anyway. Who knows if they’ll even have to tell you what the drugs are.

Sorry to be a downer.

I’ll focus on the word might in your statement. Having family members that have fought diseases and lost and ones still fighting I assure you, nothing is free. Especially when dealing with big pharmaceutical companies. They are only profit driven. Plain and simple.

To quote the great Chris Rock “ there is no money in the cure. Only in the medicine.”

I was waiting, glad you didn't disappoint.



Some see the glass half full, some see it half empty, others just want to smash the glass and ground it up and put in the food of Trump and his supporters.

Do you know my neurologist told me about drugs and pregnancy?

He told me that the only way they gain any information about what most drugs do to pregnancy is through accidental exposure, so if you are taking a medication and get pregnant, you become a data point.

This would be the same thing, only the patient has the choice of trying an experimental treatment if they are terminal. Then they become a data point.

It’s not like people will be forced to try these experimental drugs. It will be their choice. Shouldn’t they get the choice, especially if there are no other options except to die?

About damned time!

We have needed this for years!

But yes, you are right, something good will not be reported widely and or it will somehow be turned into a negative.

Sarah Sanders raked the FAKE reporters over the coals today for ignoring this major show of Trump's compassion.
