Asco brief only[edit]

there were briefs filed by other amici besides ASCO that disagreed with ASCO. Why is only the ASCO brief mentioned? THF 13:03, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Not to mention that this case extends further than simply the question of how drugs are tested. In effect, a ruling for Abigail would've reaffirmed the right to self-determination as a constitutional right, which would have deep consequences for just about any form or regulation our nanny state undertakes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:43, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Well this case had major implications in many areas including palliative care, research ethics and the concept of rationing and has triggered dozens of articles in the literature. Mgoodyear (talk) 17:31, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

This article mentioned in Torts casebook[edit]

I find it amusing that this pathetic little article is cited as offering a "continuous update on the controversy": Epstein, Cases and Materials on Torts, Ninth Edition, p. 42. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:22, 12 September 2010 (UTC)


This article seems very slanted against the Abigail Alliance and in support of the FDA's position. For example it states as fact that if Abigail Alliance had won participation in Stage II and III trials would go down. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:38, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

This does seem likely, as participation in trials means you have a 50% chance of getting "standard" treatment or even a placebo, also there is more procedures and testing associated with trials. If you could guarantee getting the experimental drug with less bureaucracy you may choose that route. I have added a cite needed to the sentence. - RoyBoy 21:03, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

NPOV remove[edit]

I've removed the NPOV template, please use {{POV-section}} for sections or {{POV-statement}} for sentences, then detail issues here. This will help address them in a timely manner. - RoyBoy 21:09, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
