AARP - Free Pill Identifier

Free Pill Identifier

You just can't have too many free online pill identifiers.

This one from AARP (Association for the Advancement of Retired Persons) is kind of nifty. I like the interactive interface, and suspect you will too.

Aspirin Reduces Colon Cancer Risk

Aspirin-3D-vdWImage via WikipediaI was happy to hear about the latest findings suggesting that Aspirin May Reduce Risk of Colon Cancer (Video).

Both my parents had gastrointestinal cancers, so for the last 15 years or so, I've been taking a baby aspirin everyday, based on my sense that there was some suggestive evidence that it could be protective.

Here's to aspirin and colon health!

FDA INTERPOL IMPACT IIWA Bust Almost 300 Websites

The FDA participated in an effort to bust nearly 300 websites.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory and international partners have completed the International Internet Week of Action (IIWA), a coordinated, cooperative effort to curb online sales and distribution of counterfeit and illicit medical products. IIWA took place between October 5-12, 2010.

The IIWA is an initiative sponsored by INTERPOL, the World Health Organization's International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force (IMPACT), and the Permanent Forum on International Pharmaceutical Crime, as well as national health and law enforcement agencies from 40 participating countries.

The goal of the IIWA is to protect the public health by increasing the public's awareness about the dangers and risks associated with purchasing drugs and medical devices from Internet websites, to identify the producers and distributors of counterfeit or otherwise illegal pharmaceutical products or medical devices, to target these individuals or businesses with civil or criminal action, and to seize counterfeit and illegal products and remove them from the supply chain.

294 Web sites that appeared to be engaged in the illegal sale of unapproved/misbranded drugs to U.S. consumers were targeted. A total of 274 have been suspended or no longer offer pharmaceuticals for sale. The FDA is working with its foreign counterparts to address the remaining 20 Web sites which continue to offer unapproved prescription drugs to U.S. consumers.

FDA Promises Swift-Aggressive Enforcement To Protect Public Health

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is articulating its enforcement strategy in order to ensure strategic alignment within the Agency and express why enforcement is critical to protecting public health. The FDA has the responsibility and authority to safeguard the public health and ensure compliance with the laws and regulations it administers pertaining to foods, drugs, medical devices, biologics, and tobacco products.


Enforcing the laws and regulations is one of the Agency’s highest priorities. The FDA is committed to swift, aggressive enforcement actions to protect the public health.

Under the FDA's scrutiny, it's important more than ever before that drug and device manufacturers have their house in order.  Getting a house in order also includes paying attention to executive and operator training around the FDA regulations, such as cGMP regulations and more.
