Product Description

Is a new industry watchdog necessary?

In the January/February 2002 issue, PharmaVOICE asked readers if the Food and Drug Administration should collect special user fees from pharmaceutical manufacturers to analyze and disseminate data on new drugs and biologics after they are released into the general population. We wanted to know if post-market surveillance should continue to be a function of the FDA, or should the industry become its own watchdog?
