Immunotherapy Drug (Keytruda- pembrolizumab) for treating Cancer on the PBS now

This petition had 202,734 supporters


For far too long in Australia, the only choice for cancer patients has been chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Charlie Teo (Top Australian brain tumour surgeon) has stated that Chemotherapy and radiotherapy (known carcinogens) are now archaic and brutal forms of therapy. In Dr Teo's opinion. Immunotherapy is the way to go.

Please sign this petition to allow the immunotherapy drug Keytruda (pembrolizumab) to be available for all cancer sufferers via the PBS. 

Ketruda has had great affects on Melanoma, lung and prostate cancer. However our government does not believe there is enough proof to subsidise this drug. 

Get trials pushed through the senate or allow this drug to be placed on the PBS ASAP. 

No more Australians need to die of this terrible disease waiting for our country to get with the times. Some families don't have time to wait.
