Well said. We are now investigating the concept of the half-life of a medication, not the duration of the molecule in the blood stream but is survival on the market until it is found to be harmful in some unexpected way, no better than previous treatments, a copy of something already there, misrepresented by contracted advocates, etc. The typical mistake in drug development is to define the problem too narrowly and therefore not to consider seriously enough “what else does it do?”.   Dick Levins
