Spotlight: Follow-Up on Prevagen

The State of New York and the Federal Trade Commission, closed the case against Quincy Bioscience Holding Company, the makers of Prevagen—the so-called memory enhancer—in the U.S.Court of Appeals, Second Circuit on 02/21/2019. I have contacted the Attorney General of NY to find an explanation, so far without any success.
As far as I can tell, the state and federal governments simply quit, along with a list of other parties who had active cases in the court system.

The lesson is this: we cannot depend on the judicial processes to guarantee that quackery can be contained in the land of pseudopharma.  It will take an act of Congress to make all drugs go through the FDA.
