Currently, there are more than 200 drug shortages in the United States. Many of these drugs are used to treat deadly diseases like ovarian cancer. These shortages have resulted in women with ovarian cancer not getting a drug their doctor recommended, not getting a drug on time, not getting any drug or getting a more expensive drug.
While we recognize that many factors can contribute to drug shortages, we know that the impact is devastating for women with ovarian cancer. This disease is already the deadliest gynecologic cancer. Drug shortages make it difficult for women to receive necessary medical care, much less the best possible medical care.
The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance and the undersigned call on pharmaceutical companies and appropriate government agencies to take immediate action that will end or ameliorate these shortages.
