Im­munother­apy has been in the head­lines re­cently, with the an­nounce­ment that a new drug for ad­vanced melanoma will come onto the Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Ben­e­fits Scheme later this year, drop­ping the cost from $ 8000 to about $40 per treat­ment. It’s the sec­ond im­munother­apy drug to be sub­sidised in Aus­tralia, but it cer­tainly won’t be the last. Find out why this treat­ment may one day re­place chemo­ther­apy (page 8). Also, don’t miss the easy five-minute ex­er­cises that will make your brain sharper (page 6), as well as b+s per­sonal trainer Shel­ley Gor­man’s “crawl­ing” work­out that’s sure to tone all wob­bly bits (page 18). Have a great week!
