House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing, Science and Mission at Risk: FDA’s Self-Assessment [witness list]

  • PRNewswire-USNewswire: “The nation’s public health is at risk, as are the regulatory systems that oversee the nation’s drug and device supplies, according to an FDA Science Board report…presented at a…hearing today. The committee attributed the deficiencies to soaring demands on the FDA; and resources that have not increased in proportion to those demands. They conclude that “this imbalance is imposing a significant risk to the integrity of the food, drug, cosmetic and device regulatory system, and hence the safety of the public.”
