You clearly haven't suffered with debilitating psoriasis if you say that Raptiva made people more sick and caused more damage than the good it did. It's true that in 3 cases, it made 3 people more sick and caused more damage. But that is only 3 cases ... out of who knows how many people taking it all over the world. I tried everything available for more than a decade, and the only medication that worked to get me back to functioning like a real person is Raptiva. It gave me my life back. Until there are better medications available, it may very well be worth the risk to some people to be able to live normal lives, given that, based on what we know now, this risk is apparently miniscule.
