The FDA’s thinking is correct, but was their decision?
It would make sense to pull a drug that has no apparent benefit and obvious
negative side effects. But Genentech has a point when they “argued that Avastin
should remain available while it conducts more research to see if certain
groups of patients might benefit from the drug.” Historically, the FDA has done
more damage by banning or delaying a drug than if they were to release it. The
wait for drugs can be just as a deadly or more so than dangerous drugs. It
makes sense logically, a dangerous drug can be pulled at any point, but what’s
the solution for a lack of a solution? That would be to find one, and in this
situation, since Avastin was so many people’s last hope, wouldn’t it make sense
to continue to research?
