The FDA says if doctors can set it up as a clinical trial they can continue to treat patients with it. They just need to gather certain data.
“It’s a little surprising now that it happened three or four weeks later. Then they made that decision because there hasn’t been any new studies published since then. It’s very important for everyone to know that These things are evolving, changing a lot. So one thing that comes up today might change the next day whether negative or positive,” Dr. Hassoun said.
