Governor Wolf Signs Legislation Authorizing “Right to Try,” Allows Terminally Ill Patients to Seek Experimental Treatments

first_img Bill Signing,  Healthcare,  Press Release,  Public Health Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf signed legislation that gives terminally ill patients the right to try experimental treatments, such as investigational drugs, biological products and medical devices, not yet fully approved by the FDA.“I have supported and will continue to support legislation that gives patients power in their health care decisions,” Governor Wolf said. “At no time is that more important than when faced with a terminal illness. Having the chance to try all options can offer hope and better quality of life for many.”House Bill 45 was introduced by Representative Bob Godshall and was passed unanimously by both the House and Senate. Sen. Chuck McIlhinney sponsored the bill in the Senate.Eligible patients are those with a terminal illness attested to by their treating physician, unable to participate in a clinical trial, who have a recommendation from their physician to try the investigational product, and have given full informed consent.The law also gives health care providers immunity when recommending the use of an investigational product and protects them from professional licensure sanctions. Thirty-seven other states have laws similar to Pennsylvania’s.The law does not provide for health care coverage for those participating in the experimental treatments, but a manufacturer may elect to provide them to an eligible patient without receiving compensation.

Wellesley bites the dust in Norwegian well

first_imgThe wildcat well 6204/11-3 is located in production licence 829 in the Norwegian Sea where Wellesley is the operator. Wellesley received a safety consent to drill the well using the Borgland Dolphin well in July 2020 and a drilling permit for the well in August. The well was drilled about 75 kilometres north of the Gjøa field in the North Sea and 60 kilometres northwest of Florø. The water depth at the site is 211 metres. The well has now been permanently plugged and abandoned. The well is dry. The well was not formation-tested, but data acquisition was undertaken. The well did not encounter reservoir rocks in the Åsgard Formation. About 30 metres of aquiferous sandstone was encountered in underlying Jurassic rocks with moderate to very good reservoir quality. According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), the objective of the well was to prove petroleum in reservoir rocks in the Lower Cretaceous (the Åsgard Formation). This is the first exploration well in production licence 829, which was awarded in APA 2015. The well 6204/11-3 was drilled to a vertical depth of 1290 metres below sea level and was terminated in the basement rock. Th well 6204/11-3 was drilled by the Borgland Dolphin drilling rig, which is now headed to Kvina Shipyard in Fedafjorden. Oil and gas company Wellesley Petroleum has drilled a dry well located north of the Gjøa field offshore Norway. last_img read more

Taylor keen to build on Olympic success

first_imgIreland’s boxing heroine Katie Taylor will return to the ring for the first time since her Olympic triumph when she faces Poland’s Karolina Graczyk at the National Stadium in Dublin on Friday. Taylor has picked up a number of awards since her raucous Olympic win at the ExCel in London, but she has done her best to stay out of the limelight and her comeback has been kept deliberately low-key. Taylor said: “It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind and it’s been such a busy time. It seems everyone knows who I am now but I’ve never been interested in being a celebrity, so that has taken some adjusting to. “I’m still only 26 and I feel I have things to prove and things to achieve in the sport. I’m constantly learning in the gym and looking to improve. I always set myself goals and I want to retain that Olympic title in Rio in 2016 and retain my European and world titles as well, so I’m hungrier than ever to keep improving.” The Bray fighter was left disappointed last month when Ireland’s bid to host the 2013 Women’s European Championships were scuppered by the sport’s governing body, who decided to delay the event until 2014. Instead, Taylor’s target for the year is likely to be the European Union Championships in Hungary in June, with a further build-up bout already scheduled to take place in Dublin next month. Ward’s bout with Egan is the other highlight of a packed card, with Egan, beaten in the last two finals by Ward, bidding to become the first man to win 11 Elite Championships titles. Olympic silver medallist Michael Conlan is also in action as he faces Chris Phelan for the Irish flyweight title. Another Olympian, Adam Nolan, takes on Willie McLaughlin in the welterweight final. Press Associationcenter_img Taylor’s bout will act as a support to 13 Elite Championships finals which will be decided on the night, including a third consecutive light-heavyweight clash between Joe Ward and 2008 Olympic silver medallist Ken Egan. Her bout with Graczyk marks the start of a busy week for Taylor, who will also fight Germany’s Maike Kluener at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in the city on Sunday evening. last_img read more
