Here is what we need the FDA to understand:
"External Real World Evidence from patient data already exists! This MUST be used as the “control arm” in clinical trials.... INSTEAD of sacrificing any more people from this patient population to placebos in lieu of actual treatment!"
"These Patients are going to die quickly, therefore, it makes no sense to give them a placebo in a clinical trial instead of the treatment, especially when the external patient data already exists and can be used as the control arm w/in the clinical trial design/protocol for rare diseases." ~Dellann Elliott Mydland, President & Chair, The EndBrainCancer Initiative
