FDA Allows More Cancer Drug Imports From China As U.S. Faces Shortages

U.S. regulators are allowing imports of additional supplies of a cancer drug from China amid a nationwide shortage that has forced doctors to ration care, putting patients’ lives at risk.

The Food and Drug Administration has allowed distribution of 10 more lots of cisplatin, an essential chemotherapy drug, from Qilu Pharmaceutical, an agency spokesperson said Monday. The FDA previously cleared four lots of Qilu’s version of the drug, which is unapproved in the U.S., but similar to approved cisplatin sold there.

The current U.S. shortage of cisplatin started at the beginning of the year when Intas Pharmaceuticals, the company that makes much of the country’s supply, shut down a factory in India after the FDA found that workers apparently destroyed documents. Soon after, carboplatin, another chemotherapy drug that can sometimes be used as a substitute, fell into short supply.

Shortages of generic drugs like cisplatin are common in the U.S. Experts say the medicines don’t make enough money for companies to set up reliable supply chains. Drug shortages are at a five-year high, according to the University of Utah’s drug information service, which tracks the data. The FDA lists at least nine cancer drugs in short supply.

When there is a shortage of a medicine, the FDA regularly allows importation from companies that manufacture versions of the drug that aren’t approved in the U.S.

  1. The FDA took doctors who cured cancer patients to court – wants people to take cancer drugs made in China @#$%

    Dr Burzynski Cure for Cancer

    This is what the post said just in case you can’t get it.
    This cure for cancer was discovered 42 years ago……But has been suppressed several times:
    In 1976, Dr. Burzynski discovered a strain of peptides never seen before.
    He also discovered that people with cancer lacked these peptides.
    Burzynski then started giving patients a peptide called ANTINEOPLASTON.
    2 years later, the board tried to REVOKE his MEDICAL LICENSE.
    60 Patients petitioned the board for filing complaints.
    A trial ensued and the judge found Burzynki “not guilty” of any crime.
    The FDA then took Dr. Burzynski to Federal Court.
    Dozens of cured cancer patients testified for Dr. Burzynski.
    Patients were testifying that they have had NO radiation or chemotherapy and chose Dr. Burzynski instead after they have done a lot of research.
    30+ congressmen wrote to persuade the FDA to allow Burzynski’s clinical trials.
    The judge declared a mistrial and the FDA later dropped all remaining charges.
    The FDA then allowed Burzynki to proceed with Phase II clinical trials.
    However, court cases continued to plague Dr. Burzynski for 20 more years.
    After many set backs the FDA just recently approved one of his medications.
    Two other medications are currently in final approval.
    To support his claims, he showed Gaia recent patient results.
    The brain turmor went into remission in 4 weeks.
    These tumors in the liver disappeared in 6 months.
    Here is Ovarian Cancer that healed in 9 months.

    • Yes, it’s effective for their goal of depopulation. 50 million died in the “Spanish Flu” due to vaccine and mask wearing!
      All the vaccines have become dangerous. Autism, neurological disorders, seizures, leukemia, allergies are all linked to the non-covid vaccines. Even tetanus shots are sterilization shots.
