Herceptin--the silver bullet for some types of breast cancer?

Extra! Extra! Hear all about it! Amazing new miracle drug for breast cancer patients!

From the associated press: "Several experts used words like “revolutionary,” “stunning” and “jaw-dropping” to describe the findings on the impact of Genentech Inc.’s drug Herceptin. Some even talked of a “cure” for a considerable number of women".

Oh, by the way, if you are poor, you had better start digging your grave now. Looks like Tiny Tim won't be blessing the pharm companies this year:

A year of Herceptin could cost $48,000 even at wholesale prices.
