MADISON - Even with some new restrictions, the state medical society worries about a bill that would make experimental drugs available to terminally ill patients.
The proposal has bipartisan support, but faces strong opposition from the Wisconsin Medical Society.
The group argues that quickly approving experimental drugs could give patients false hope.
The Assembly's Health Committee was scheduled to vote Wednesday on possible changes to the bill.
Its sponsored by Wausau area Republican Pat Snyder.
The change states that only patients who cannot participate in a clinical trial can try the experimental drugs.
The Wisconsin Medical Society felt that doesn't go far enough to address concerns.
