KUWAIT: The Ministry of Health dismissed as "untrue" rumors on the administrating of fake cancer drugs. The Ministry said in a statement yesterday that a committee was formed to investigate the matter. After examination, the committee proved that all cancer medication that was described as "fake" on social media had undergone technical and bioequivalence testing before they were registered at the Ministry as "fit" for cancer medication.
