Aveo says FDA refuses to approve cancer drug

Aveo Oncology said Monday that the Food and Drug Administration has refused to approve its cancer drug tivozanib, saying the clinical trial data supporting the drug was not clear.
Finally the FDA is doing something in the public interest. We don't want another Vioxx without proper research
Isn't research at the government cost?
Since many of the newer drugs for kidney cancer are now showing effect with other cancers, there was also hope that the same would be for AVEO. That means that other cancer sufferers will not have the benefit of another drug. Don't forget that there is usually no way to tell which patient will respond to any single drug, so it is important to have choices. The FDA did not help the cancer community with this decision.
Did you forget to send the cash pay-off again??
