Drug approval: what is safe enough

I mentioned recently the safety concerns in regards to Avandia a diabetes medication manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. Wired has an excellent article disambiguating why this drug would stay on the market despite the safety concerns and how potentially still unsafe drugs reach the market.

It is a good clear article, well worth the read: FDA Drug Standards: What's Safe Enough?
