"In a second letter to the Obama transition team, dated Jan. 7, 2009, the scientists “raised issues of public concern, including, but not limited to, corruption within the FDA device review process, managerial misconduct, dangers to public health, welfare and safety, and retaliation against whistleblowers,” the lawsuit said."
The article seems to be about corruption at the FDA leading to the approval of "unsafe or ineffective devices."
In the case of LuViuva we have the FDA not approving a device that is safe and effective. Maybe this controversy has the FDA behaving with excessive caution when it comes to device approval.
The article doesn't mention cases where corruption led to the disapproval of a safe and effective device. One can only speculate as to whether corruption accounts for what happened with LuViva. My own guess is incompetence not corruption.
