Young cancer patients who couldn't get a key medicine because of a national drug shortage were more likely to suffer a relapse than others who were able to get the preferred treatment, doctors report. It's the first evidence that a long-standing drug-supply problem probably has affected cancer treatment results in specific patients.

After eight weeks of treatment with the preferred drug, "she was doing wonderfully," said her mother, Katie Alonzo.
