CancerVax's Efforts to Develop Cuban Cancer Drugs Detailed

The San Diego Union-Tribune today published a good account of CancerVax Corporation's three-year effort to obtain an OFAC license to complete the clinical development of three experimental cancer drugs that were developed in Cuba (see previous article in International Trade Law News).
