A recent, informative article from the MDA outlined the process for bringing a drug to market. What’s striking is the length of this process, particularly within the context of the search for a cure for Charcot-Marie-Tooth.
Once a drug appears to work effectively in mice, it must undergo further testing before it can be used on humans in clinical trials. Over an approximate two year period, researchers work to determine if that drug has the best chance of having the desired effect on the disease with the lowest possible harm to the patient. Then toxicology studies must be done to show the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the drug is safe and likely to be effective. Further they must determine how to administer the drug and at what dosage. This preclinical research takes five to seven years and costs millions of dollars.
