Assembly vote lets terminally ill request experimental drugs
Sacramento Bee

Terminally ill patients would be able to use experimental drugs under a bill approved by the California Assembly.

The so-called “right-to-try” legislation would let patients who have exhausted other treatment options request medication that hasn’t been approved by state or federal regulators.

Drug makers would decide whether to provide the medication. Some medical groups say the legislation could hurt the development of new drugs.
