HR 5247 Providing Terminally Ill Patients the Right to Try Investigational Drugs (Roll Call 121)



This bill provides terminally ill patients the right to try certain investigational drugs that have not yet fully completed all the clinical trials of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or been approved by the FDA for sale. ACU believes it is absurd to deny terminally ill patients the right to try potentially lifesaving drugs and supported this bill. The House passed the bill on March 21, 2018 by a vote of 267-149.
