The development of a pharmaceutical drug is a slow, deliberate process, and it can take years of back-and-forth between scientists and health officials before medicine makes it to the market.

But the worst Ebola outbreak in history has changed all that. The Food and Drug Administration is in crisis mode, and its process of reviewing applications for new drugs has been pushed into overdrive. The arrival of the deadly virus on American soil has created an unprecedented situation for the regulatory agency, especially when it comes to experimental drugs.
