Experimental Treatment Bill Signed

Governor Rick Snyder has signed legislation giving Michigan residents with advanced illnesses who have exhausted all other options the opportunity to try experimental treatments under the care of a physician. The measures create the Right to Try Act in Michigan. It allows those suffering from advanced illnesses in the state to receive experimental treatments outside of FDA-approval, if all approved procedures have failed to help the patient. The treatments would only be allowed under their doctor’s supervision. Under the law, medical professionals and health care facilities are protected from liability if the experimental treatment does not have a positive result for the patient.
