Government, Policy & Law: Modernization of FDA (Food and Drug Administration) Drug and Device Approval Process
I shall modernize the “Process” that FDA follows to approve Drugs and devices:
- Reformulating the testing phases the “drugs” and “devices” have to go through,
- the phases themselves
– with the goals of shortening time and reducing the amount of money spent in the approval process.
Government “Process”es haven’t incorporated newer Technologies for more accurate testing & efficiency gains.
But before those changes take place, we have to make sure – drugs and devices are not approved hastily (untested “side-effects” might do more harms than goods to patients).
Some of European BioPharma Companies are already excited – planning to move research facilities to US – if those changes take place.
