Pipes In December, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made a decision that could cause thousands of breast cancer patients to lose their last hope. That day, FDA officials voted to revoke approval for Avastin for the treatment of late-stage breast cancer. breast cancer treatment. Officials found that the drug, when used in combination with another treatment called paclitaxel, sub- stantially prolonged progression- free survival, and they ruled to retain its approval. There was a time when U.S. regulators appreciated these miracles. Back in 2008, the FDA granted the drug temporary ap- proval for breast cancer treat- ment after considering research showing that women on a pha- rmaceutical cocktail including Avastin lived a median of two to three months longer than patients on a regimen without it. Last summer, however, the FDA's Oncologic Drugs Ad- visory Committee revisited that decision and recommend it be reversed. On December 16, the general body made that recommendation official. Public insurance programs could use the decision as justification to stop covering Avastin for breast cancer. Private insurers are likely to follow suit. In fact, several national insurers - including Regence and HSCS- have already started restricting reimbursements for Avastin for breast cancer. So most women are going to be stuck trying to pay for Avastin out-of-pocket. Effectively, the FDA has decided that many late- stage breast cancer patients can get extra time with their loved ones only if they have enough zeros on their bank statement. Worse still, this decision could smother future pharma- ceutical development. Gen- This move was a disgrace. Avastin reduces blood flow to tumors, allowing it to halt the spread of breast cancer in some patients. In one clinical trial, 52 percent of Avastin users saw their tumors stop growing or spreading to other parts of their bodies. In most other breast cancer patients, Avastin acts as a pause button, temporarily spar- ing women from deteriorating further. On average, Avastin extends life by a few months. However, some "super respond- ers" react especially well and enjoy additional years. FDA bureaucrats know this but ignored the evidence. The FDA stated last month that Avastin does not offer "a suf- ficient benefit in slowing disease progression to outweigh the significant risk to patients." How could the FDA come to such a conclusion? The agency was likely influenced by Avas- tin's cost. Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers typically pick up a substantial slice of the tab for Avastin, and an annual regimen costs upwards of $90,000. But for many of the 17,500 American women prescribed Avastin every year, those dollars translate into a substantial amount of extra life-days and months they wouldn't have had to spend with their friends and families. Even among patients that don't experience a substantial increase in lifespan, Avastin can still significantly improve their quality of life, enabling them to better enjoy the time they have left and meet death with grace and dignity.

(RCARC, Inc.) purchased a mobile communications trailer after receiving a grant from the USDA and from donations from local businesses and individuals. The trailer will be used during natural or man-made disasters and search and rescue missions to provide communications from the field. The trailer will soon be equipped with the latest amateur radio transceivers, antennas and backup power sources such as batteries and generators. "With the help of the USDA, local businesses and individuals, the club is very'pleased to have this unit at our disposal. It's a vital tool for us to have to pro- citizens of the county," says club secretary and public relations manager Jamie Combs. The trailer is ready to be deployed at anytime but will be fully equipped by later this year. The club would like to express its sincere appreciation to the USDA and to everyone that made donations for the purchase of the trailer. The trailer will be displayed at various times at the emergency communications cen- ter in downtown Lebanon.

Last week I watched a mana- tee barrel roll down the spring run at Blue Spring, on the St. Johns' River, as the rising late morning temperatures and shin- ing sun made it safer for manatees to venture into the cold river to feed. This week, at Three Sisters Spring, on Florida's west coast, I observed manatees hud- dled in discretely marked sanct- uaries, motionless for hours, resting and conserving energy beyond the reach of human visitors. Nearly every manatee I saw was scarred from previous boat collisions. The barrel- rolling Blue Spring manatee had a series of four propeller scars down the left side of his body, suggesting he may have been trying to roll away from the oncoming boat that struck him and lett him permanently scarred. One of the manatees who swam so gracefully up the spring run at Three Sisters Spring to take advantage of the high afternoon tide to get even closer to the warm water boiling from the spring, had the appear- ance of a mermaid - her paddle- shaped tail had been mutilated into a forked shape, again by a boat collision. resulted from Florida's growth, would be the understatement Of the century.
