Intresting. In the US we seem to benifit from stringent
drug lisence laws. There were no flipper babies in the US because of them. In the case of AIDS it seemed prudent to
some to speed up the approval process. It makes sense, people could die
while we waited 5-10 years to prove saftey and effectiveness. Speeding things up did mean
we had less data on when and how much to use. AZT and others were not used till late stage, while now we
know they are better given sooner. To be fair, this fact is more due to advancement in knowlage of AIDS itself.
We assumed AIDS lay dormant till someone was sick, this proved to be incorrect.
