Senior Fellow Benjamin Powell is Interviewed on American Medicine Today Radio on Drug Approvals and the FDA
Recorded: Saturday, December 12, 2015

What is the cost of the long approval process for potentially life-saving drugs by the FDA? The approval process can take up to 12 years and cost $1 billion. But there are other costs. Patients aren’t able to take drugs that aren’t approved and they might die or become more ill. Another cost is that a potential drug maker might not want to take the financial risk of taking a drug to market. Powell recommends testing drugs but possibly making drugs "FDA recommended", rather than "FDA approved." What’s needed is competition and markets to help patients and entrepreneurs, says Powell.
