Resolution P/117/15 titled “Resolution urging the state legislature to require testing for DPD prior to chemotherapy treatment involving 5 Fluorouracil (5FU)” will be reviewed by New York State. Currently testing is not required in any US State. Currently no states require testing. Thank you to Judy Stoddard and the Cherri Stoddard foundation your hard work.
