'Groundbreaking' Cancer Drug Recycling at Major US Center

A new program allows cancer patients in Ohio to pass along their unused and unneeded oral cancer drugs to fellow patients with cancer who cannot afford the pricey pills — even if the pills are not in the original packaging.

The free exchange is debuting at Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, but other institutions and pharmacies can apply to participate under new state rules that took effect in October, according to officials speaking at a press conference in Columbus and broadcast online.
