Industry, Trade and Commerce Minister Eli Yishai (Shas) on Friday afternoon promised colon cancer patients conducting a hunger strike outside the Prime Minister's Office that he would make sure the drug Erbitux was included in the subsidized 'basket' of medicines. Yishai said the funds for the drug would come from the allowance promised to Shas in a previously concluded coalition deal. The initial sum would be NIS 15 million, to be transferred this year.
