Is the FDA Approving Too Many Drugs?


According to a new study, Food & Drug Administration (FDA) advisors don’t say no very often when deciding to recommend a drug or approve a new medical device. The FDA counts on the committees for safety feedback and the study raises serious questions about their independence.

The study focused on the voting patterns of six randomly selected FDA drug advisory committees and five medical device panels from 1998 through 2005. Of those selected, medical advisory panels approved drugs 76 percent of the time and the medical device panel approved items 82 percent of the time.
