Re: AVEO Oncology Announces Updated Overall Survival Hazard Ratio
"...all Aveo did is prove that Tivo is just slightly better than obsolete."
Sometimes, one step ahead of extinction is all an old dinosaur's got. I see this as an entertaining scenario brewing up. To recommend a "theoretically approvable" consideration to support RCC prescription of TiVo, there will necessarily be some compromise of integrity at FDA...some endorsed stretching of conceptual need by the likes of Brian - perhaps even some outright lying. Is the RCC treatment regimen so rife with unmet need as to enable a TiVo approval?
Wouldn't this set a dangerous precedent by lowering the bar for future approvals?
