U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of AmBisome (liposomal amphotericin B) for treatment of visceral leishmaniasis. (1/1514)In August 1997, AmBisome (liposomal amphotericin B, Nexstar, San Dimas, CA) was the first drug approved for the treatment of visceral leishmaniasis by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The growing recognition of emerging and reemerging infections warrants that safe and effective agents to treat such infections be readily available in the United States. The following discussion of the data submitted in support of the New Drug Application for AmBisome for the treatment of visceral leishmaniasis shows the breadth of data from clinical trials that can be appropriate to support approval for drugs to treat tropical diseases.

Advances in the biological therapy and gene therapy of malignant disease. (2/1514)Biological and gene therapy of cancer have become important components of clinical cancer research. Advances in this area are based on evidence for the presence of tumor antigens, antitumor immune responses, evasion of host control by tumors, and the recognition of host defense failure in cancer patients. These mechanisms are being corrected or exploited in the development of biological and gene therapy. Over the last decade, 9 biological therapies have received Food and Drug Administration approval, and another 12 appear promising and will likely be approved in the next few years. Our approach to gene therapy has been to allogenize tumors by the direct intratumoral injection of HLA-B7/beta2-microglobulin genes as plasmid DNA in a cationic lipid into patients with malignant melanoma. In four Phase I studies, we found a 36% response by the local injected tumor and a 19% systemic antitumor response. In other cancers, gene transfer, expression, and an intratumoral T-cell response were seen, but no clinical response was seen. A variety of follow-up studies with HLA-B7 and other genes are planned. Evasion of host control is now a major target of gene therapy. Strategies to overcome this include up-regulation of MHC and introduction of cell adhesion molecules into tumor cells, suppression of transforming growth factor and interleukin 10 production by tumor cells, and blockade of the fas ligand-fas interaction between tumor cells and attacking lymphocytes. With these approaches, it seems likely that gene therapy may become the fifth major modality of cancer treatment in the next decade. (+info)
The US Food and Drug Administration investigational device exemptions (IDE) and clinical investigation of cardiovascular devices: information for the investigator. (3/1514)The conduct of a clinical investigation of a medical device to determine the safety and effectiveness of the device is covered by the investigational device exemptions (IDE) regulation. The purpose of IDE regulation is "to encourage, to the extent consistent with the protection of public health and safety and with ethical standards, the discovery and development of useful devices intended for human use, and to that end to maintain optimum freedom for scientific investigators in their pursuit of this purpose" (Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). Conducting a clinical investigation may require an approved IDE application. The US Food and Drug Administration encourages early interaction with the agency through the pre-IDE process during the development of a device or technology and during the preparation of an IDE application. This facilitates approval of the IDE application and progression into the clinical investigation. This paper reviews the terminology and applicability of the IDE regulation and the type of study that requires an IDE application to the Food and Drug Administration. The pre-IDE process and the development of an IDE application for a significant risk study of a cardiovascular device are discussed. (+info)
Availability of immune globulin intravenous for treatment of immune deficient patients--United States, 1997-1998. (4/1514)Immune globulin intravenous (IGIV) is a lifesaving treatment for patients with primary immunodeficiency. Since November 1997, a shortage of IGIV has existed in the United States. In 1998, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required pharmaceutical companies to increase the frequency of reporting on IGIV distribution from biannually to monthly; in addition, FDA facilitated IGIV distribution and informed clinicians about the ongoing shortage. To assess the impact of the IGIV shortage on patient care, in 1998 the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) surveyed physicians caring for immunodeficient patients about whether they have had difficulty obtaining IGIV, measures they have taken because of the shortage, and the effect of the shortage on their patients. This report summarizes data reported to FDA and data obtained from the IDF survey and provides recommendations for IGIV use during the shortage. (+info)
Procedure for expediting determinations of antibiotic susceptibility of gram-negative, urinary tract pathogens. (5/1514)Standardized direct disk diffusion antibiotic susceptibility testing on monomicrobial urine specimens is compared with the Food and Drug Administration method. The direct procedure yields acceptable data and may conserve 24 h in reporting results. (+info)
Herbal remedies: adverse effects and drug interactions. (6/1514)A growing number of Americans are using herbal products for preventive and therapeutic purposes. The manufacturers of these products are not required to submit proof of safety and efficacy to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration before marketing. For this reason, the adverse effects and drug interactions associated with herbal remedies are largely unknown. Ginkgo biloba extract, advertised as improving cognitive functioning, has been reported to cause spontaneous bleeding, and it may interact with anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents. St. John's wort, promoted as a treatment for depression, may have monoamine oxidase-inhibiting effects or may cause increased levels of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. Although St. John's wort probably does not interact with foods that contain tyramine, it should not be used with prescription antidepressants. Ephedrine-containing herbal products have been associated with adverse cardiovascular events, seizures and even death. Ginseng, widely used for its purported physical and mental effects, is generally well tolerated, but it has been implicated as a cause of decreased response to warfarin. Physicians must be alert for adverse effects and drug interactions associated with herbal remedies, and they should ask all patients about the use of these products. (+info)
Modernizing the FDA: an incremental revolution. (7/1514)The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting consumers from unsafe or ineffective drugs and medical devices. The agency's role is defined by a growing and increasingly complex set of statutes, which reflect Congress's desires, on the one hand, to prevent product hazards and, on the other, to expedite FDA review and approval of promising new medical technologies. Congress's latest attempt to calibrate regulation to achieve these goals, the 1997 Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act, endorses certain of the FDA's own innovations and changes in the agency's ways of doing business. (+info)
When is a cost-effectiveness claim valid? How much should the FDA care? (8/1514)Federal law requires the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate the promotional claims of prescription drugs and certain devices. Standards of evidence for claims of safety and therapeutic efficacy are rigorous because inappropriate product use may place human life at risk. However, equally demanding criteria for claims of cost-effectiveness of marketed technologies seem to be unnecessary because the consequence of error is principally a bad buy rather than patient harm. Concern exists about the validity of cost-effectiveness studies, the potential for bias, standards for the conduct of cost-effectiveness research, and the needs of managed care. The FDA should moderate its role in regulating cost-effectiveness claims of drugs and devices. This would foster information flow to healthcare providers and insurers and protect the FDA concern regarding false or misleading claims of effectiveness. Although the issues are applicable to both devices and drugs, we draw mainly from the field of pharmacoeconomics because this is where most of the policy has developed. (+info)

Impact to the bioanalytical community of the FDA issuance of the draft guidance on biomarker qualification: evidentiary...
The FDA released a Draft Guidance in December (2018) on the evidentiary framework and standards required to achieve qualified biomarkers. It is intended to cover a regulatory gap related to the use of biomarkers outside of specific drug programs. As such, this Draft Guidance supports the Qualification of Drug Development Tools section (507) of the 21st Century Cures Act enacted on December 13, 2016 and provides the framework for developing the data set (evidence) supporting designation of a biomarker as qualified for a particular context of use (COU). Within this context of use, the qualified biomarker, "…can be relied on to have a specific interpretation and application in drug development and regulatory review…" While biomarkers measured by medical devices are outside the scope of the Draft Guidance, the Agency broadens the practical scope beyond qualified biomarkers to include the evidence needed to support the use of biomarkers in INDs, NDAs and BLAs:. "Many principles discussed in this ...

Are Stronger Dietary Supplement Regulations on the Horizon? | Health Care Industry | Dinsmore & Shohl LLP
As background, DSHEA clarified that FDA primarily regulates dietary supplements as foods that are not subject to FDAs general premarket requirements. However, DSHEA also imposed certain dietary supplement-specific adulteration and misbranding provisions. The provisions obligate dietary supplement manufacturers to comply with FDAs current good manufacturing practices, regulations governing statements and claims made on dietary supplement labeling, and FDAs new drug ingredient (NDI) premarket notification requirements in specific circumstances.. While it remains unclear what regulatory changes FDA could pursue, a February 2019 press release from FDA indicated at least one goal is to implement "one of the most significant modernizations of dietary supplement regulation and oversight in more than 25 years." In this regard, FDAs regulatory goals could include updates to recall procedures and requirements, increased enforcement against dietary supplements containing NDIs or unapproved drug ...

Good manufacturing practice - Wikipedia
GMPs are enforced in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), under Title 21 CFR. The regulations use the phrase "current good manufacturing practices" (CGMP) to describe these guidelines. Courts may theoretically hold that a product is adulterated even if there is no specific regulatory requirement that was violated as long as the process was not performed according to industry standards. However, since June 2007, a different set of CGMP requirements have applied to all manufacturers of dietary supplements, with additional supporting guidance issued in 2010. Additionally, in the U.S., medical device manufacturers must follow what are called "quality system regulations" which are deliberately harmonized with ISO requirements, not necessarily CGMPs. The World Health Organization (WHO) version of GMP is used by pharmaceutical regulators and the pharmaceutical industry in over 100 countries worldwide, primarily in the developing world. The European ...

Care-Tech Laboratories Agrees to Stop Making, Selling and Distributing Unapproved Antimicrobial Products - Healthcanal.com :...
Inspectors found that Care-Tech violated numerous provisions of the FDAs current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) regulations that direct how antimicrobial drugs are made. Additionally, the products do not conform to any applicable regulations for OTC drug products and have not undergone an FDA review, and therefore are considered unapproved drug products.. Under the terms of the consent decree, Care-Tech may not resume manufacturing and distribution of the drugs until it corrects these and other violations.. "The FDA is concerned about Care-Techs products because they lack FDA approval, do not conform to any applicable over-the-counter drug monograph, and are not appropriately manufactured," said Deborah Autor, director of the FDAs Office of Compliance, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. "Companies have an obligation to consumers to ensure that their products are safe, effective, and high quality, and the FDA recommends that Care-Techs customers seek alternative ...
ACLA Praises Letter to OMB From Nation's Leading Academic Medical Center Labs Opposing FDA Regulation of Laboratory Developed...
WASHINGTON, DC - The American Clinical Laboratory Association (ACLA) today lauded a letter sent from twenty three laboratory directors of the nations most prestigious academic medical centers to Brian Deese, Acting Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), urging him to refrain from releasing draft guidance from the Food and Drug and Administration (FDA) that would impose an additional cumbersome regulatory approval process on laboratory developed tests (LDTs). The OMB Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) is charged with conducting reviews of regulatory policies. "Clinical laboratories within the nations most esteemed academic medical centers have voiced unified opposition to FDA guidance overseeing LDTs. FDA intervention would add another layer of unnecessary and duplicative regulation to the LDT approval process, impose a stranglehold on diagnostic innovation and reduce patient access to the latest groundbreaking diagnostic advancements," said Alan Mertz, ...

JURIST - FDA Regulation of Antibiotic Use in Agricultural Animals
The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has been a consistent check on the Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) attempts to extend its authority. Now, it seems that the federal courts in New York are becoming a favorite venue to force the FDA to use its authority. The latest of these is an order from the US District Court for the Southern District of New York in Natural Resources Defense Council v. United States Food and Drug Administration (NRDC v. FDA), that requires the FDA to reissue a notice of withdrawal of approval for the subtherapeutic use of the antibiotics penicillin and tetracycline in food animals, and to hold hearings for the relevant drug sponsors as part of mandatory withdrawal proceedings.. The opinion itself is rather curious and arguably misunderstands the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Acts (FDCA) requirements for withdrawal of drug approvals and its overall approach to risk assessment. Nonetheless, it may serve as a useful spur to better antibiotic use ...
What's in the Fish Feed: Proposed FDA Rule Set to Strengthen Animal Feed Safety in the U.S. and Overseas | The Fisheries Law...
By Kevin Long. The U.S. Food & Drug Agency (FDA) is set to implement new feed safety regulations arising under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), signed into law by President Obama in January 2011. The FDAs recently proposed rules are published in the Federal Register and titled, "Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Food for Animals; Proposed Rule." The new FSMA feed laws work together with prior food safety legislation, namely the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and impact feeds used in aquaculture production.. The U.S. Federal Government has regulated animal feed for over 100 years, with roots in the 1906 Pure Food & Drug Act. With multiple federal agencies involved in the area, including the FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Agriculture, Customs and Boarder Patrol, and likely others, animal feed policy and laws in the U.S. are complex. Further, there are also separate regulatory regimes for ...

The rest of the story is that in their zeal to put a feather in their cap by being able to claim that they achieved FDA regulation of tobacco products, the major anti-smoking and health groups actually deceived the public about the potential health benefits of lower-yield cigarettes to a greater degree than anything the tobacco companies have ever done. Frankly, the tobacco companies wouldnt even dream of deceiving the public to this extent. They remained somewhat subtle in their deception, by merely implying that there is some health value to reduced yield cigarettes. I can only imagine the scorn and ridicule the companies would have received had they claimed that their lower-yield cigarettes were going to save countless lives ...

Performance enhancement: not just for athletes anymore | AAP News | AAP Gateway
Contamination concerns. Pediatricians should remind families that Food and Drug Administration regulation of supplements is much looser than for items sold as foods or drugs. However, it can be very difficult for consumers to distinguish these categories, as supplements often are intermingled on shelves with food and/or over-the-counter drugs at point of sale. Analysis of supplements sold as PESs revealed that 25% were contaminated with anabolic steroids, 20% with heavy metals and 11% with stimulants. Concerns regarding contamination and lack of FDA regulation of dietary supplements prompted attendees of the 2016 AAP Annual Leadership Forum to adopt a resolution calling for enhanced education and advocacy. Risk factors, different motivation. Risk factors for PES use include: male, higher body mass index, body dissatisfaction, training in commercial gym and exposure to appearance-oriented fitness media. While use of PESs correlates with substance abuse and other high-risk behaviors, PES use ...

21 CFR Part 16, Subpart G - Judicial Review | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is correcting a proposed rule that published in the Federal Register of January 16, 2013. That proposed rule would amend our regulation for current good manufacturing practice in manufacturing, packing, or holding human food (CGMPs) to modernize it and to add requirements for domestic and foreign facilities that are required to register under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) to establish and implement hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for human food. That proposed rule also would revise certain definitions in our current regulation for registration of food facilities to clarify the scope of the exemption from registration requirements provided by the FD&C Act for "farms." We proposed these actions as part of our announced initiative to revisit the CGMPs since they were last revised in 1986 and to implement new statutory provisions in the FD&C Act. The document published with several typographical errors, ...

After several delays and missed deadlines, and an unprecedented level of public comment and outreach by FDA to industry, several significant rules required by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) are now being finalized and issued. In mid-September 2015, the FDA published the Preventive Controls for Animal Food rule, which provides baseline Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) for producing safe animal food and which take into account the unique aspects of the animal feed industry, providing flexibility for the diversity of facilities in this space. The rule also requires such animal feed facilities to implement a written food safety system.. ...
Weakened Immunity: How the Food and Drug Administration Caused Recent Vaccine-Supply Problems: The Independent Review: The...
Temporary Shutdowns to Upgrade Facilities. According to the FDA and many press reports, some vaccine shortages occurred because manufacturing plants were closed temporarily to upgrade equipment. Some of these accounts mentioned that the FDA had mandated the upgrades, but seldom did they mention that the upgrades might not have been necessary in the first place. Infectious Disease News, March 2002, at least hinted at this possibility: Regular upgrades to production facilities are mandated by Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) and can also impact vaccine production and supply. CGMPs compel vaccine makers to pay to keep current with dynamic regulatory standards investment dollars that could otherwise be spent on developing new vaccines ( How to Shore Up 2002).. The FDA, through its CGMP standards, requires vaccine makers to upgrade their production equipment, often at costs of millions of dollars, even when the current equipment is still functioning properly. As noted earlier, the FDA ...
ALL ABOUT the NUMBERS? | Kidney Contenders®
Regulatory data provides regulatory oversight over how health and wellness can be accomplished within legal processes. Many of us focus on new drugs and how new drugs can be a temporary solution or a resolution for a health issue. New drugs are not marketed to us without research and surveillance by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA list 5 steps required for drug development process and approval. Multiple testing is required by the drug applicant in the preclinical research step before the drugs can be tested on humans. Medical devices are also under regulatory policies. The MediBeacon medical device, transdermal Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) for example, is a measurement used by clinicians to monitor renal function. In October 2018, the FDA approved MediBeacon as a "Breakthrough Device" for expedited regulatory review, though the device is not yet approved for human use. these actions are taken by the FDA to ensure our health is protected and only the most ...

AU - Leeper, Heather E.. AU - Uhm, Joon H.. PY - 2013/10/1. Y1 - 2013/10/1. N2 - BACKGROUND Bevacizumab received US Food and Drug Administration approval for use in recurrent glioblastoma based on promising radiographic response data, but without clear evidence that it prolongs survival. A population-based analysis was conducted to determine whether bevacizumab approval was associated with improved glioblastoma survival in the United States. METHODS Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program data were used to compare survival of glioblastoma patients who died in 2006, 2008 (both prior to approval of bevacizumab), and 2010 (after approval of bevacizumab). RESULTS The SEER database contained 1715 patients with glioblastoma who died in 2006, 1924 who died in 2008, and 1968 who died in 2010 who met ...

Drug Research and Children | FDA
The FDA has taken a carrot-and-stick approach to encourage pediatric studies, says William Rodriguez, M.D., the FDAs science director for pediatrics. The carrot is the voluntary pediatric exclusivity provision of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA), which was reauthorized in January 2002 and extended through 2007 as the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA). The stick is the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA), which allows the FDA to require pediatric studies. Heres an overview of each initiative:. The Pediatric Exclusivity Provision of the BPCA. The pediatric exclusivity provision has done more to spur pediatric studies than any other regulatory or legislative initiative so far. The provision allows companies to qualify for an additional six months of marketing exclusivity if they do the studies in children as requested by the FDA.. Patents protect a companys investment by giving it the sole right to sell a drug while the patent is in effect. When ...

FDA Takes Enforcement Action Against Pennsylvania Dietary Supplement Maker
SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The FDA today took legal action against a dietary supplement maker and owner for substituting ingredients and products without noting the changes on the final product labels. The permanent injunction, filed on behalf of the FDA by the U.S. Department of Justice, would stop the defendants from making and distributing more than 400 products for being in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act..

Several diagnostic test kits marketed for home use or at-home sample collection are raising the eyebrows of laboratory experts worried about their safety to consumers and questioning whether they may be violating US Food and Drug Administration regulations.. Such kits have not been cleared by the FDA for the indications they are being marketed to, and whether they are technically in violation FDA regulations is murky. For some in the industry, such tests may pose a risk to patients, yet the firms assert that they are compliant with all state and federal regulations, and other experts suggest that the telephone or video conferencing with physicians provided with ...
FSMA addresses a gap between dietary supplements and dietary ingredients
Dietary supplement manufacturers have already been facing their own, gradual upgrade of safety and quality legal requirements starting with the 2007 publication of FDAs Current Good Manufacturing Practices for Dietary Supplements. Should we really expect members of the dietary supplement community to be particularly anxious, then, on behalf of their brothers and sisters in conventional foods? But, as might be expected in a guest lawyers column, theres an exception to the general rule of dietary supplement FSMA-indifference. It comes in the form of dietary ingredient companies.. For historical reasons (which really means for political reasons and ultimately, perhaps, for economic reasons) the law has not treated dietary supplements and dietary ingredients equally. More than twenty years ago Congress gave FDA the authority to "prescribe good manufacturing practices for dietary supplements" (emphasis added). Some members of the public, when it came time to comment on FDAs proposed rule for ...

Use of Multiple Endpoints and Approval Paths Depicts a Decade of FDA Oncology Drug Approvals | Clinical Cancer Research
Our research indicates that the FDA has exercised considerable flexibility in the approval of oncology drugs over the past decade. We found that the accelerated approval program has been used consistently in this time period, showing that sponsors interest in the program and the FDAs willingness to grant accelerated approvals have not waned. Indeed, in 2012, the FDA granted accelerated approval to five oncology drugs, matching its second-highest single-year total in the past 10 years. We also found that extension of OS, while still considered the gold standard by the FDA, is by no means required for approval in oncology. Even the conversion of accelerated approval to regular approval has frequently taken place without demonstration of an improvement in OS. Our research is consistent with a 2003 study conducted by the FDA, which found that 68% of drugs were approved on the basis of endpoints other than survival (29), as well as with a 2011 study that showed the FDAs flexibility in approving ...
Drug development - Wikipedia
New chemical entities (NCEs, also known as new molecular entities or NMEs) are compounds that emerge from the process of drug discovery. These have promising activity against a particular biological target that is important in disease. However, little is known about the safety, toxicity, pharmacokinetics, and metabolism of this NCE in humans. It is the function of drug development to assess all of these parameters prior to human clinical trials. A further major objective of drug development is to recommend the dose and schedule for the first use in a human clinical trial ("first-in-human" [FIH] or First Human Dose [FHD], previously also known as "first-in-man" [FIM]). In addition, drug development must establish the physicochemical properties of the NCE: its chemical makeup, stability, and solubility. Manufacturers must optimize the process they use to make the chemical so they can scale up from a medicinal chemist producing milligrams, to manufacturing on the kilogram and ton scale. They ...

We included all new drugs approved for use in the USA, Europe and/or Canada from 2001 to 2010, identified in a prior study.5 To be clear, this sample was limited to approvals of new molecular entities or novel biological drugs and excluded reformulations of previously approved active pharmaceutical ingredients, combination therapies of active pharmaceutical ingredients that had been approved previously, and generic drug approvals. We then used the public websites of the governing regulators for each market, the FDA, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and Health Canada, respectively, to ensure that all drugs conformed to the original papers inclusion criteria and reconfirm FDA approval dates for all drugs unapproved by the FDA in the original data set (using a cut-off date of 1 May 2016). In addition, we updated Health Canada approval dates using the Notice of Compliance (NOC) database, which provides the most accurate timing for Canadian market access.6. Drugs first approved outside the USA ...
