FDLI 50th Annual Meeting Heralds New ERA in Healthcare Innovations,,FDA Regulations

Is FDA Equipped to Meet Pace of Innovations and a Health Conscious Public?

WASHINGTON, April 30, 2007 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must adapt to the most significant changes in the history of healthcare, Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach told attendees at the Food and Drug Law Institute's 50th Annual Conference April 12 in Bethesda, Md.

FDA must find creative "bridging" ways to use its limited financial and personnel resources to deal with the challenges led by scientific breakthroughs increasing health benefits but also risks in foods, drugs and devices, von Eschenbach told the industry representatives, compliance officers, health policymakers, physicians, regulators and attorneys attending the FDLI meeting.

Keynote speaker Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), sponsor of The Healthy Americans Act -- omnibus legislation to reform the healthcare system in the United States -- said that it was vitally important that Democrats and Republicans work together to enable FDA to improve the drug delivery process. The Healthy Americans Act seeks to provide universal, affordable, quality health coverage to all Americans.

The landmark FDLI conference focused on the impact of scintillating scientific discoveries that are driving technological innovation in health care and the impact of those changes on FDA and pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, as well as the food industry. Industry leaders, including representatives from Siemens and Amgen, provided a glimpse into the future of personalized medicine. Expert panels discussed how these innovations would affect reimbursement, claims, food marketing and safety, clinical research, drug evaluation, radiological health and veterinary medicine. Representatives from all major FDA centers provided inside information on new agency initiatives in these areas.

This 50th FDLI annual meeting also marked a reinvigorated FDLI focus
