Audio: New Survey Finds Strong Public Interest in Prescription Drug Safety Issues
Date:9/20/2007

-- 50% of Americans are skeptical of Congress' ability to pass "common-

sense" laws governing how the FDA approves drugs

-- Despite public trust in the FDA, those surveyed are evenly divided on

the agency's overall performance:

-- 53% rate the FDA as excellent or good, while 47% rate it as only

fair or poor.

-- Overall, 18-34 year olds are more positive to the FDA, while senior

citizens (especially men) are more negative

-- Only 8% of those surveyed have seen, read, or heard about the Food and

Drug Administration Revitalization Act (FDARA)

-- Those surveyed are divided on the question of whether or not FDA

reviews of new drugs should be funded by the pharmaceutical industry

-- 47% in favor and 46% opposed.

-- 54% believe that all prescription drugs sold in the U.S. have been

approved by the FDA, while 37% say just some of them have approval

-- Few of those surveyed have a clear understanding of where the FDA

receives its funding -- 54% say it is from the government, 20% from

pharmaceutical companies, and 17% say it is from both

-- Most believe the biggest contributor to the cost of prescription drugs

is the profit margin (43%), while 28% say it is the cost of marketing,

and only 25% say it is the cost of research

The national telephone survey of 800 adults was conducted by The Mellman Group and Public Opinion Strategies from September 4-6, 2007. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.46%.

The survey results were announced as part of A Dialogue on Prescription Drug Safety: Seeking Common Ground, a program presented by American University's Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies and FORA.tv to examine efforts by public policymakers to enhance America's prescription drug safety systems and reform the FDA.
