there are so many variables for a brand new technology that tracking it down would be a herculean task.
Drugs have to go through a 3 phase, sequential process to even get to the authorization stage much less full approval (side note, notice how the legacy media is calling all these new ***** treatments "approved" rather than "authorized"?).

The 3 phases end up costing hundreds of millions of dollars in R&D and testing. Huge risks are taken in order to get approval. As I mentioned earlier, I'm on an amazing, though somewhat boutique BTK inhibitor that I know cost multi-millions to bring to market. The cost of the med is about $450 per day. Fortunately Cigna pays for a fair portion of that. But that med went through years of trials before it was brought to market. It was tested, retested, and even today, there are new variations of BTK inhibitors that will likely replace the one I'm on.

So the drug companies can, and do test their products over years despite the fact that maybe it would be better if it didn't take so long. After all, millions of people die every year for lack of a treatment that might be in the testing pipeline. But the FDA doesn't generally allow this. Or at least it hasn't up until last year when they were clearly bribed to authorize the mRNA tech.

Yes, they do approve dangerous drugs and yes, they do pull them off the market when the risk/benefit ratio goes upside down. I honestly don't expect either the FDA nor the drug companies to bat 1000. My problem with the FDA now is that they are clearly bought and paid for, and thus, they have lost all usefulness.

The FDA, like the FBI, should be burned to the ground by the next Republican president and start over with a new model. I can think of one potential GOP candidate that would do that. I can also think of a popular potential GOP candidate that wouldn't lift a finger to do that - thread for another day.
