MNKD2011: You are probably correct about the source of the pressure on the FDA, but I will rationalize to myself that the dozens of letters I wrote to media groups, medical publications, article authors and Congressmen had a tiny part in helping it,lol. I really like the APPARENT new attitude of the FDA towards MNKD. I hope it is more than just politics at play here. I can easily see how the current administration would/could capitalize on approving this product and claiming credit for the lives it will help, the jobs it will create and the revenues it will generate, etc. etc. -especially if it can "Get R' Done" before the next elections ! GO MNKD ! GO MR. MANN !
