Q. Isn’t there a risk that this will accelerate the adoption of drugs that aren’t ready and aren’t safe yet?

This isn’t a trade-off between speed and safety.

FDA is streamlining approvals for these treatments and personalized medicine can arguably have better safety and efficacy profiles than one-size fits all medicine of today.
