Outrage over cancer therapies Empty Outrage over cancer therapies

Outrage over cancer drugs.

two drugs companies have attacked a decision to remove  their treatments from a fund to give expensive therapies in England.

The Cancer Drugs Fund is overspent and 42 drugs are being reassessed as price caps are brought in for the first time.

Pharmaceutical companies say they are "outraged" at a "fundamentally flawed" decision that will damage patient care.

NHS England said the current system was unsustainable and that there were new drugs "that will do more for patients".

update for males who may have prostate cancer, UK government have now withdrawn life saving drug Jetvana, doctors have called this a 'travesty'

the hope drug gives those up to 3 or more months but many have gone on to 2 to 3 years.
