Lots of pre-ASH lymphoma news:

Encouraging Data on Astex’s Anti-Cancer Drug AT9283 to be Presented at ASH

These are only a few of the anti-lymphoma research advances which will be revealed at this weekend’s meetings–and I will be there to share the findings with you!

Note every one of these sites is business related.  Let’s not forget these drug trials are all about the money.  If a new drugs work, that drug company’s stock soars.  The fact patients benefit is almost an afterthought. 

But who cares, right?  As long as the drugs work–and our insurance companies continue to pick up the tab!

I’m leaving for Orlando in 30 minutes.  Hope I find lots of good news for my fellow blood cancer patients and caregivers!

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
