Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Earlier this week, the Health Ministry announced that it has approved the biosimilar version of trastuzumab, a targeted therapy for women with HER2-positive breast cancer. The biosimilar version will significantly reduce the cost of treatment, which currently costs RM130,000 a year.
