In brief: Many disappoint

A series of different level studies must show the medicine is safe, that there's a reasonable chance it will be helpful, and only then can a controlled study be done to demonstrate clear benefit.
Many new touted "breakthrough" drugs prove terribly disappointing. This is the reality -- there's no magic way to find miracle cures, but i've never believed in dark conspiracies either.
