Promising sign for the pharmaceutical industry. Less government red tape and b.s., get more of these drugs needed by the public out there.


In a rare and surprising reversal, the Food and Drug Administration gave Amicus Therapeutics Inc. the greenlight Tuesday to submit its rare-disease drug, Galafold, for an accelerated review process.
