Deroy Murdock: How red tape slows one life-saving drug's path to market

"The government wants the processing of invoices and payments to be checked by multiple employees," Czirr says. "We would have to hire more people to create this kind of redundancy... Then we have to hire an outside auditor to come in randomly and test these 'internal controls.'"
"We did a test last year that shows that Galectin's drug can be used to treat lung diseases," Czirr says. "That test cost about $100,000. We could have done that test a year earlier, if we didn't chew up scarce funds on things like this."
