My apologies for leaving out a "0" in my last post! They need 1000 people for phase III of any drug study. Here is a web page that gives a good explanation of how drug studies are done and why it takes so long to get a new drug on the market: http://www.allp.com/drug_dev.htm. This explains why we are waiting so long to hear about pagoclone for stuttering. Anyone who stutters should consider signing up so phase III can get underway.
