In the Pipe

This is a place to discuss all aspects of drugs in development. Often those in the field are a source of overlooked wisdom in assessing the value of a new drug. If this section becomes popular, it is possible that we may give it its own section on the site. Please feel free to post links to relevant information about new drugs. This board will currently allow anonymous posting, and posts will go live immediately. However, we do ask that you keep discussions on topic. Please understand that we will delete threads/posts that do not provide a useful discussion of new drugs in the pipeline.
