PRESIDENT OBAMA SIGNS HIGH MORTALITY CANCER BILL INTO LAW
Lung Cancer and Pancreatic Cancers Now Research Priorities
Washington, DC [January 3, 2013]-- Just hours before the end of the 112th Congress, constitutional deadline for approval of a bill passed by that Congress, President Barak Obama today signed into law the first legislation requiring comprehensive plans of research action for high mortality cancers, with lung and pancreatic cancers given priority status for expedited attention.
This landmark legislation, included in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, requires the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to develop scientific frameworks for addressing cancers with survival rates of less than 50%, with first priority attention to lung and pancreatic cancers. The framework must be sent to Congress within 18 months.
