According to an article in the British Medical Journal, over half of 216 new drugs they studied may not help at all, and only a quarter have any major benefit. The article says two of the drugs actually made things worse. How do they get approved, again?

''Only 54 of the 216 assessed drugs (25%) were judged to have a considerable or major added benefit. In 35 (16%), the added benefit was either minor or could not be quantified. For 125 drugs (58%), the available evidence did not prove an added benefit over standard care for mortality, morbidity, or health related quality of life in the approved patient population.''
