Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] New Super Leukemia drug announced

Hi Lisa,
The new drug Gleevec by Norvartis has been tested
on CML. I do not know what type of leukemia your ferret
has been diagnosed with or if it will help. The price tag
for this new drug (for people) is going to be $2,000- 2,400
per month (30 tablets)! It is supposed to be at the pharmacies
next week.
