Quotes

"We take it very seriously, that side-effects, which should be extremely important to any pharmaceutical company, were not reported appropriately."
"This is nothing to be alarmed about, but something to be aware of. Patients who stop therapy should continue to be followed for adverse events" researcher Johan Richter, MD, PhD, from the Skåne University Hospital in Lund, Sweden, told Medscape Medical News
"We have the chance to impact the lives of millions of cancer patients and their families, and to do so sooner rather than later" said OHSU President Joe Robertson
...and we hope it will inspire others who care deeply about curing cancer to make their gifts," said L Keith Todd , president of the OHSU Foundation. "Thousands of individuals and organizations from throughout the country have participated in the campaign so far, and several organizations are just launching their own efforts to support the challenge. This latest gift energizes us further so we can begin achieving more life-saving wins against cancer as quickly as possible."
