Bring back DOXIL to the market immediately

People are dying because of the rampant drugs shortages in this country. There are over 260 drugs in shortage and one of the most serious shortage involves DOXIL which is used to treat ovarian cancer, multiple myeloma and Kaposi's Sarcoma. DOXIL has been largely unavailable since July 2011. J&J and its company, Janssen Product LP, say DOXIL will not be available until December 2012 AT THE EARLIEST. A year and a half in the life of a person with advanced cancer is too long to wait for a chemotherapy that works.

      It should be a crime to not produce an effective drug just because it is not profitable enough. For our dear friend, Steve, please

      keep this drug available to all who need it!

      My stepfather has multiple myeloma and he NEEDS this drug. The shortage of Doxil and many other effective treatmetns is an emergency for people who are dying without them. I don't feel that the manufaturing comanies or our goverment is treating the issue with the urgency it deserves. People are dying while we wait.

      I have multiple myeloma stage 4 cancer. By not doing all in it's power to get doxil back into production, Johnson & Johnson is saying that the almighty dollar is more important than human lives. May the board of directors & the officers of JNJ have to deal with cancer on a personal level so that they can experience the suffering caused by not having the drugs available to fight this terrible disease.
