The Drug companies say that it sometimes takes 10 years to get a drug through development, testing, trials and approval. It would be interesting to know how long this drug took, from inception to FDA approvals. Would also be interesting to know what the FDA will change any of its testing methodologies to hopefully detect this sort of possible outcome for drugs in their approval pipeline.

Doesn't the FDA bear some resposibility for what happened to users of this drug?

The FDA is the organization that actually tracked and compiled the data that caused the drug to be pulled off the market (not Affymax.)
Why does the FDA bear some "resposibility"?
