The FDA is America’s gatekeeper for access to new drugs. As such, it gets a lot of scrutiny from the press, Congress, and generally anyone with a major stake in the decisions it makes. There are those who claim that the FDA is too lenient in its decision making process and that it unleashes unproven new drugs on an unsuspecting public that presumes any medicine approved is safe and efficacious. Others will assail the FDA as being far too conservative and say that the agency is unnecessarily delaying access to new life-saving drugs because of its bureaucracy.
