    amazing news, but...

    why don't they start testing now? Seems stupid to hold back testing whilst millions of people die in the few months they are not testing for. and why would they only test on 10-100 people, there are blatantly thousands/millions out there with cancer that would love to try this new treatment.

    also, I wonder if this treatment is gonna be really expensive. I would imagine it is gonna be.

    there's a very long procedure when it comes to testing new treatments.

    and yes, it will be ludicrously expensive...but while we still have the NHS, we needn't worry.

    yes Im very well aware of this, but it does not seem worth not giving this new "wonder drug" to a terminally ill cancer patient, just to comply with previous regulations. A cure for cancer is absolutely massive.
