Thanks for posting this.

The story is covered in a number of places including

theguardian.com/society/201...

Avastin is on the list to be reviewed, as are about half of the drugs.

Of course the real issue is pharmaceutical companies, their profits and their shareholders' expectations.

Just a pity people's health gets in the way!

Not good news, any of it
