Rasika Bombatkar: The rejection of my application for adjuvant Osimertinib is disheartening to say the least

Rasika Bombatkar, Citizen Scientist at LUNGevity Foundation, cancer patient and advocate, shared on X:

AstraZeneca, your commitment to helping people access vital medicines is crucial and expected. However, the rejection of my application for adjuvant Osimertinib is disheartening to say the least.

Reply from your medical team states there is “no data on clinical benefits” with Osimertinib for someone like me with a stage III lung cancer with EGFR exon 19 deletion post surgery. Denying access to a proven lifesaver raises questions about the value placed on lives like mine.

Let’s ensure equitable access for all patients in need.”
