Book DescriptionWhen nature, in her ultimate act of irony, strikes Richard Powell, a cancer specialist, with malignant melanoma, his wife, Terri devotes her life to curing the dreaded disease.
While publically supported research laboratories are characterized as noble in search of cures, and proprietary drug companies are caricatured as ruthless and materialistic, too often, the distinctions aren't so clear.
When a drug courier is murdered to obtain an experimental and promising treatment for malignant melanoma, the act unleashes a chain of devastating consequences.
People for Alternative Treatment (PAT), a company created to find cures for rare diseases, had fallen on hard times and became a subsidiary of Kendall Pharmaceuticals, a company with very different set of values.
Experimentation with a vaccine against tuberculosis is showing surprising effects in controlling malignant melanoma at PAT and UC Medical Center. Kendall is enthralled with the economic potential of such a treatment in melanoma and in many other cancers while researchers are leery and have many unanswered questions.
Kendall's determination to push the vaccine into clinical trial at all costs is in conflict with Terri and her ethical associates.
When clinical trials begin, the vaccine's effects are miraculous. Soon, however, once again, we see the rule of unintended consequences.
