    This all makes sense to me. I don't see why it should have to take that long for drugs to be approved. I mean, if you're dying and you are willing to try anything, I say have at it.

    I have to agree. From what I've read there are too many trials that are limited, even in life and death illnesses. I must wonder, if there is 'no chance' or 'possible chance to save life with unknown side effects", which would you choose? Especially for a child?

    Great idea IMHO but it's another one of those areas that are so sacred to the money machine that I fear it can't be touched until the money machine allows it.
