    If a drug gets to the point that it shown to not be toxic as all get out, and the approval is waiting on some final review, meds are available under what is know as a compassionate plea basis. I did it several times in practice.

    95% of drugs that are approved are marginal improvements, at best, so we don't have legions of folks dying.

    If you want to see about people dropping like flies, take some time and read about the pre-FDA times and the nostrums and potions that killed thousands every year.

    WTF!?!?!?! When did I move to the Republic of Gilead?!
