Terminally ill patients may soon be able to try experimental drugs. The Nevada Senate has unanimously passed Assembly Bill 164 that lets patients with less than one year to live using drugs that have been cleared in the first phase of testing by the FDA. The proposal would exempt doctors from punishment for prescribing experimental drugs. Supporters say the law lends home to terminally ill patients and their families. The measure already passed in the Assembly and now heads to the governor for his signature. If signed, Nevada would become the 15th state to pass “right to try” legislation.
