Clinical decisions in Hepatology:

The pirfenidone case analysis 

Autores: Méndez Sánchez Nahum, Chavez Tapia Norberto Carlos


The approval of potentially effective treatments for serious and life-threatening conditions represents a particularly difficult arena for drug developers, regulators and physicians. Hanging in the balance is the need to provide a timely treatment alternative to an otherwise untreatable and serious condition, while also assuring that the proposed treatment is sufficiently safe to preserve the overall wellbeing of the patient. This is a particularly difficult decision, as weighting the risk and benefits must be done fast and over a much finer scale than in situations where effective treatments are available.
