Congress To FDA: Study Nano Safety

The FDA will soon have a new nanotechnology safety program, thanks to language tucked into a massive legislative package that’s on its way to President Obama.

Congress To FDA: Study Nano Safety | New Haven Independent:

"The broader bill deals mainly with prescription drug safety and payments from pharmaceutical companies to fund the FDA’s regulatory efforts. Pryor and Cardin saw an opportunity to attach an idea they introduced last year, which had stalled.

Their proposal creates a “Nanotechnology Regulatory Science Program” within the FDA charged with scrutinizing the safety and efficacy of drugs, medical devices, cosmetics and other products that contain super-small particles. The legislation directs the FDA to both review ongoing academic research on health and safety issues, as well as conduct its own studies and work with other agencies."
