Petition for Abraxane for Pancreatic Cancer

I am more than upset about the lack of PBS funding for Abraxane for pancreatic cancer. Please sign this petition to lobby for change. https://www.change.org/en-AU/petitions/federal-minister-for-health-peter-dutton-please-approve-abraxane-on-the-pbs-for-pancreatic-cancer-patients

Re: Petition for Abraxane for Pancreatic Cancer

Jan At the moment a price can't be agreed upon for listing on the PBS between the makers of this drug and the government as you probably know,the PBS sits again in July and this issue is not on the agenda, which is very disappointing for all PC sufferers,hoping the two parties can get together quickly for a good result. With the signing of the petition and other pressures we hope they can speed the process for a Listing on the PBS.Thus being equal with other Cancer chemo treatments who are subsidized for Abraxane. kj
