Many of you will probably remember that I've shared that Merck's Anti-PD1 Pembrolizumab (yeah, yeah, drug names are never easy to pronounce or spell...) is set for FDA approval end of October. This week has started out with a lot of buzz around this potentially going sooner! I know a lot of fellow patients hoping and praying for this!
According to one article:
" LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. regulators are likely to approve Merck & Co's highly anticipated immuno-oncology drug, pembrolizumab, as a treatment for melanoma well ahead of a late October deadline, according to three sources familiar with the situation."
Stay tuned! I'm lucky in the fact that I already have access to this, and have had great results! But I know so many patients that would LOVE an opportunity to at least try it to fight against Melanoma.
