What is "re-evaluate or discontinue" and why is it important in drug development?

If new data or evidence that shows an approved drug has dangerous risks associated with its use or is ineffective, the drug may be re-evaluated by the health administration. They will look at the new evidence and decide whether the evidence is valid and if the drug should be discontinued. A drug is discontinued when the health administration revokes their approval or decides to stop a clinical trial of the drug. When this happens, the compound will no longer be available for use in humans.
