I Want You Back: Putting The Patient Into Policy

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Time was when the patient barely got a look in where drug development was concerned. Pharma firms would identify a new substance with therapeutic potential in a disease like breast cancer or hypertension, develop a drug and get it approved. Patients were at the receiving end and had little or no say in how the drug was conceived, developed and evaluated. The regulators themselves had little idea of the impact their decisions and policies had on patients' everyday lives.
