SMC To Rule On Cancer Drugs

A prostate cancer drug that reportedly kept the Lockerbie Bomber alive for an extra 2 and a half years may soon be available here.

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the only man convicted of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1988, was apparently being treated with drug until his death in May.

Abiraterone was already refused to cancer patients in Scotland by the SMC (Scottish Medicines Consortium) which blamed its cost, but manufacturer Janssen has resubmitted its application.

Scotland is the only part of the UK where patients cannot get the medication which is designed to extend life and improve quality of life for those in the advanced stages of the disease.
