    This is a completely different question from what you originally asked, and now it's not so clear what you're asking. The title also asks a different question than the body. What do you mean by what should be done regardless of regulations? "Should be done" according to who? Following regulations is the only path to having the drug approved. – Carey Gregory Jul 12 '19 at 13:58
