My guess is they will keep us waiting until Friday…..perhaps even Friday afternoon
I certainly hope so.
Are we going to get a RNS this week ! Getting impatient
Early access to medicines and treatments could help Cheltenham man with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy â€œI do miss walking, of course, and dream I still can sometimes.â€Those are the words of Daniel Baker, 38, from the Reddings, who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a disease which causes muscle degeneration. If complications occur with the respiratory system, it can sometimes prove fatal.But Daniel is hoping a cure can be found in this lifetime, even if there might only be â€œa small chanceâ€.The Government agreed earlier this year that new medicines and treatments which could treat serious illnesses will be fast-tracked to patients, after years of campaigning by a Gloucestershire man, Les Halpin.Les, from Tetbury, was a motor neurone disease sufferer who has fought for years for early access. He died last September at the age of 56.The new scheme will allow those with seriously debilitating conditions the lifeline of trying new medicines years before they go through the normal licensing process.One of those companies who will be looking to apply is Summit, a pharmaceutical company developing treatments for DMD.The companyâ€™s lead drug has finished phase one studies in healthy volunteers and it is now being tested on DMD boys in four hospitals in UK. The next study will start later this year, something Daniel said he would volunteer for.He said: â€œI hope this is the start of something new for medicine, not just DMD, but any life-threatening illness. I understand the need for trials, but really when youâ€™re facing something life limiting, itâ€™s worth the risks, as long as the patient agrees and is made fully aware that something could go drastically wrong.Read more:Â http://www.gloucestershireecho.co.uk/Early-access-medicines-treatments-help-Cheltenham/story-20989916-detail/story.html#ixzz2zch8gfNJ
What can we expect later this year?
Newbie for this type of share, jumped in this morning after hearing about SUMM from moneymunch on another BB. Trying to cram in as much information as I can about the company and all reads well enough so far for me to invest. Still loads to understand. GLA OPTO
