You are correct Phage, I misspoke. I should have said something along the lines of "the costs of clinical trials needed to get an Investigational New
Drug designation in order to file a New Drug Application are prohibitive for many forms of cancer medications." And in doing some research, those
costs are actually rightfully prohibitive. I wouldn't want to take a pill with a big 'KILL-C" on it that has been researched for 3 days on a budget
Also, upon research, the FDA has actually approved many drugs for treatment of cancer (see
). In fact that list is probably a lot longer than any doctor our family
has seen will ever know.
The fact remains, however, that there are people who have tried chemo/radiation, medications such as those in that list, etc. and they don't work ...
when other forms of therapy have. I'm not saying putting a pyramid of matchsticks over your bed at night and chanting 42 times to the seventh star of
Titanus is going to work, but I sure as hell would be interested if it was proven to work for some people. Saying your form of treatment worked is
great, but there is plenty of evidence that it does not work for others. Maybe after proper trials, DCA will be proven to work. Maybe not.
I would like to know what goes on in that FDA approval process nonetheless ...
