Have The Rules Changed?
I'll address this more in tomorrow's post, but everyone should know that there was a potentially very interesting ruling yesterday by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. Do patients have a right to drugs after Phase I? We might be heading back to the days before efficacy testing was required. . .read this post at Marginal Revolution to get up to speed.
I've spoken about this issue a bit before. Back in 2002 I was very doubtful about the whole idea, but my opinion has been slowly changing. I didn't expect that this is how things would change, but you should never underestimate the courts. More anon.
