Call for change in law over drugs
A man who is dying from Motor Neurone Disease is campaigning to get the law on new drugs changed. He believes that people like him should be given new drugs if there's the slightest chance they might help them even if the drugs have not passed through all the trials that the law demands. His name is Les Halpin, and he told the Today programme's John Humphrys about his own experience. He refers to the disease as MND.
