“The system is broken, and all the financial incentives are lined up to keep it broken.”

Actemra - most disturbing. Being considered for GCA medication.

For all the questions about Actemra, its market and Genentech’s profit potential keep growing.

In May, the FDA approved Actemra to treat giant cell arteritis, an inflammation of the blood vessels that, like rheumatoid arthritis, is an autoimmune disease. It based the decision on a one-year study by Genentech that involved just 149 patients who took the drug. In a press release, the FDA said the trial’s “overall safety profile … was generally consistent with the known safety profile of Actemra.”
