The drug was either too difficult to process/synthesize/extract or they found out in later testing that the drug WASN'T as great as they thought it was (usually it's about causing liver damage in people). A vast majority of tested drugs don't make it to FDA approval for these reasons. For example, Hoodia (for obesity) was dropped by Pfizer and Unilever because it was difficult to process, and a study later found out that the herb didn't work and caused liver damage.

It sounded a bit fishy from day one (e.g. they claimed the impressive results with a pill, but only ever suggested that a topical treatment would/might be developed ; why?) The inconsistencies / ambiguities in the information provided by Summit make me think that they were never being very honest about the whole thing. Perhaps it was a basically a publicity stunt?

When there's silence for this long, it generally means there was a problem with the clinical trials (funding or something went wrong). It's definitely a bad sign. I think this is a classic example of too good to be true.

Also, it was supposed to be based on an existing medication, yet there is no known medication (isotretinoin excepted) that has such a dramatic effect on sebum production. Those who thought it was oxybutynin chloride have found that this doesn't do anything for their skin.
