Ronald Kavanagh

Former Federal Drug Administration (FDA) reviewer Ron Kavanagh was fired in 2008 after threatening to blow the whistle on the agency’s 2003 approval of PB, a drug used as a preventative measure against deadly soman nerve gas, and after reporting falsified FDA reviews for antipsychotic drugs. Dr. Kavanagh has been an outspoken advocate against administering PB to soldiers before a soman attack, alleging that it will cause more fatalities, not less.
