    FDA approves first advanced cancer therapy

    This apparently is a breakthrough. A new technology that was the goal of a $11.9 Billion buy-out. Right now it is only applicable to a very few patients, and the cost is $475,000 for a treatment. But hopefully it is a technology that can be tailored to be used for more and more types of cancer with hopefully a truly YUUUUUGE drop in price.

    Still, pretty exciting news.

    Thanks Big Pharma for spending Billions developing this new treatment, and billions more making it more effective on more types of cancers.
