There are many drugs and procedures that are currently used outside the US in say Mexico or Europe, etc...that are not FDA approved. Don't see why they would limit themselves to only the US when other countries forge ahead trying to cure people with the latest advances.
there already printing rat hearts, and other great stuff, they dont need fda approval for testing with drugs instead of animals then people will want the organs and fda will have to approve them who wouldnt want an organ with no wait
I just read an article that on average it takes 11-14 years and cost $4 billion to get a drug approved by the FDA. It's difficult to get a drug approved for market -- so difficult, in fact, that just one drug out of approximately every 5,000 to 10,000 tested in preclinical trials will ever make it to market, according to Medscape.
You take that into account and even if ONVO never prints out organs or skin and all they do is provide to drug makers a better model for testing their pipeline drugs they will make lots of money. If drug companies can screen out their failures earlier with better models they can save lotsa $$, and ONVO being the company that can print out organ like models to test drugs can make lotsa $$ as well.
