Recommended movie: Fight to Live (2012)

The documentary FIGHT TO LIVE follows the pursuit of emerging cures for terminal diseases as told through the stories of patients, patient advocates and the companies who stake their future on the discovery of new treatments.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2084832/ It can be rented in iTunes for a low price.

Without taking a side in the debate, I recommend this film to all my regulatory affairs colleagues. It made me reflect about the delicate relation between health agencies and pharma companies wanting to assure superior efficacy and an acceptable safety profile, and patients needing urgent solutions to live or improve their quality of life.

It’s easy to lose the connection between what we do at the office every day and the patients at the other end. This week, let’s remember our patients and work for them.
