Support The Fda Modernization Act Of 2021 Pledge 3

WHY: The Drug Development Process is Broken

  • More than 90 percent of drugs that pass animal tests fail during human clinical trials because of safety problems or for lack of efficacy. 
  • Each new drug takes 10-15 years to develop & costs $1-6 billion. These costs are passed on to consumers in the form of high drug prices.
  • But advanced testing methods that are based on human biology can better predict how humans will respond to drugs than animal tests.

 

HOW: The FDA Modernization Act of 2021 will save lives by 

  • Broadening options for drug developers to use testing methods that will best predict human safety and efficacy.
  • Speeding up the discovery and lowering the costs of new life-saving treatments.
  • Reducing animal testing
