Advocating a Treatment, but Denied Access to It

Date: July 17, 2008
Author: Reed Abelson
QUOTE: In a lawsuit filed in federal court on Wednesday, the mother, Cheri Gunvalson, is suing the company for access to an experimental drug that she says could help her 16-year-old son in his battle with a rare but devastating disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy. While the mother claims that executives repeatedly assured her that her son would get the drug, the company denies ever making such promises and says the drug is not ready for widespread use.
