New Chemotherapy Drugs
I read continually on the forum, about "new" chemotherapy drugs,
yet all the research I've done can not locate one chemotherapy drug
that has been newly patented and released.
I'm no slouch when it comes to research, it's "brought home the bacon",
so to speak, but all I can find, are reformulated (and re-named)
drugs that have been around for a long time, some over 20 years.
Many chemotherapy drugs that have entered into the list of "soon-to be"
expired patent drugs, are quickly reformulated and re-named, and
re-issued, to provide continued profits by the company that owns the patent.
Avistan (bevacizumab) for instance, has been around since 1995.
Not one thing about the basic composition has been changed in all
these years, yet so many individuals seem to think it's something new!
If anyone at all can provide me with the name of a "new" chemotherapy
drug that has been patented and released fairly recently, I would greatly
My quest for knowledge never seems to deplete!
