  1. Not sure what you mean Prof G

    Is the Big Pharma Model-take years testing drugs?

    Is it charge Loads of Cash, where drugs are not proportional to cost of development?

    or is it the Marketing Jamboree you eluded to that we are voting on? or is it

    All of the Above?

  3. No; developing and getting drugs to people with MS! In your opinion is the current system working; are you satisfied with what is happening at present.

    The speed of drug development is largely determined by the regulators (European Medicines Agency and the FDA). I am sure if Pharma could, they would speed things up. The longer they can sell their drugs before they come off patent the more money they would make.

    The cash they make, or don't make from drugs that fail, is the incentive for developing drugs. What you need to realise that for every drug that gets licensed there are a large number that fail; for example cladribine.
