Jimmy: <br /> The FDA is seriously underfunded and being pulled in different directions by an ignorant public, ignorant legislators, big money lobbies, and loads of big pharma money.They are struggling. <br /> They do the best they can. <br /> The antisense platform is valid and has some FDA approvals and cured folks as proof. <br /> The FDA is afraid of risk, even in the cases of folks with fatal diseases. The liability attorneys flock like hungry vultures.
