FDA approved TROXX, the drug which will be never used
The Great Pharmaceutical Cycle is very slow and conservative. It is especially true about the Pharmaceutical business in USA. FDA, the main authority which decides if the drug will enter the market, is incredibly slow to accept them. It takes enormous amount of time and money to introduce the new drug to the US customers. It requires tests that are hard to perform because of rarity of the target condition. USA has not approved some vital drugs used worldwide since 1950-1970. There are pending researches for the very important medications for treating Alzheimer, cancers and cardiovascular diseases. However some of the drugs get 'wonder-pass' in a year or two. You will be surprised, that these drugs are not designed to actually heal someone.

FDA approved a drug that suppresses the development of the smallpox virus. The last case of smallpox observed in the wild was happened in 1977. WHO considers smallpox totally eradicated since 1980. An effective vaccine against smallpox was the first one developed and served well since 1798. It was proclaimed as inefficient as a mean of biological warfare and in fact finds their only use in fiction books and political propaganda, such as accusation of Iraq in manufacturing smallpox.

TROXX, erroneously named 'a vaccine against smallpox' in the press is Tecovirimat (ST-246). It is antiviral with specific activity against orthopoxviruses. The reason the ST-246 was quickly and without required tests passed by the FDA is a special schedule granted to Siga Technologies, a bio-defense contractor. The TROXX will be stored in a quantity of two millions doses as a preventive measure in case of bio-terrorism attempt.

It is rising questions and we are absolutely sure the society will question both the need for the TROXX and the amount of doses to be stored at the strategic reserve stockpile. The ease of falsifiable terrorist attack is always a a brewing ground for what is called 'conspiracy theories' in the mainstream media.
