Daniel, I ran a simple Google search and it seems to be available (almost) all over the world. So
what seems to be the problem? Or why are you asking here and not a cancer centre? Who is it for?
What type of cancer? Where is the person? etc etc. Let us know, I may have some resources for you. J

Hi, I understand it needs prescription in the US, or I am wrong? My relative asked me to look for
it. He lives in China, either it is not available there or hard to find there. In his case, it is
for lung cancer. I don't know anything about medicine or whether IRESSA is useful or not. He asks
for it so I try to get some for him.

Thanks, Daniel

This might help you: http://www.astrazeneca.com/productbrowse/5_84.aspx

With the price of medicine in the US, you may want to check out other countries. I worked with the
AFS exchange program and we had several visiting educators from China in the years I volunteered. I
have heard similar stories of lack of medicines. I hope you are able to find what you need to help
your relative, but please do some research. Medicines of this nature can do more harm than good if
they are used incorrectly.

Hope you found it off Sharon's post http://www.astrazeneca.cn/ is the China web page. I have no idea
what it says there. (I hope you read Chinese and can ascertain where it can be obtained in China). J
