I read about this first in GoozNews, then in The Daily Extra and The Great Beyond. I just Googled FDA is a corrupt organization (about 56,200 results) and found a couple of interesting links, like fdaisevi and uselessfda.
If an FDA chemist can generate more than $3.6 million in illicit profits, I can imagine how much higher-ups can make. I won't be surprised if this is only the tip of the iceberg. The solution to this might be more transparent clinical trails, even when they are double-blinded. If public can have some input and it's not a simple go/no go decision, then FDA would be more trusted and leave less room for corruption. We definitely need next generation or 2.0 version of Open Clinical Trials.
