Peter Huber, knowledgeable in technology, know-how, and public coverage, demonstrates why Washington’s one-size-fits-all drug regulations can’t take care of illnesses rooted within the complicated molecular range of human our bodies.

In the Eighties, an AIDS prognosis was once a dying sentence, till the FDA loosened its throttling grip and commenced streamlining and accelerating approval of life-saving medicinal drugs. The healing within the Code exhibits sufferers, medical professionals, traders, and coverage makers what we needs to now do to seize the total life-saving and cost-saving strength of the revolution in molecular drugs. the US has to decide on. At stake for the United States is the ability to steer the realm in getting to know the main loose, fecund, aggressive, dynamic, and clever usual source at the planet—the molecular code that spawns human existence and controls our health.
