Public Citizen demands FDA resignations after aducanumab approval 

The nonprofit watchdog group Public Citizen has sent a letter to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra “to express its outrage” FDA’s recent approval of Biogen’s (NSDQ:BIIB) Alzheimer’s drug aducanumab (Aduhelm).

Public Citizen concluded that the safety and efficacy profile for the drug was unfavorable and asked that Becerra install an FDA commissioner who would consider withdrawing the Aduhelm approval. Public Citizen also called for the resignation or termination of three FDA officials: Acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) Director Dr. Patrizia Cavazzoni and CDER’s Office of Neuroscience Director Dr. Billy Dunn.
