Cancer Drug Bill Passes House Committee

A bill that would get rid of the price disparity between oral and IV cancer drugs was approved by the Health Innovation Subcommittee Wednesday morning. Dr. Wayne Taylor, a Pasco physician who battled leukemia, says the bill would make chemotherapy drugs in pill form less expensive, the Tampa Bay Times reports.  

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
