S. Michael Imperiale Jr M.D. - The Standards of the FDA

In the United States, the FDA must approve pharmaceutical drugs in order to be sold legally, and it must meet the agency's regulatory standards. Also, before it is approved, each type of medication is reviewed by the FDA for safety and effectiveness. Later on in the process it is tracked once they are on the market. There are occasionally some unexpected complications with some medications that will surface from time to time. Typically, the FDA carefully coordinates with the manufacturer to issue a recall in order to minimize any negative impact the product might have for the public.

It has been estimated that there are up to three billion prescriptions written in the United States every single year. The FDA is an agency within Health and Human Services that is responsible for reviewing, approving, and regulating medical products. Millions of Americans depend upon prescription drugs to help them control their health conditions. The FDA plays a critical role in the process of a new medication going from the laboratory to the marketplace.

S. Michael Imperiale Jr M.D. - Get Quick FDA Approvals

In 1992, the FDA created significant programs, under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act, for the purpose of meeting the treatment needs of those with serious or unmet medical needs. If you are at a Pharmaceutical company and you want to expedite approvals for pharmaceutical drugs, you can get your products approved quickly by the FDA through fast track and the 510(k) premarket processes. These types of FDA approval programs give doctors and patients faster access to promising new drugs or medical devices.

The FDA urges that it does their due diligence in making sure that reducing the time it takes to get new products approved does not have a negative impact on consumer safety. It will also not compromise the health of those in need and less fortunate. Keep in mind that the Food and Drug Administration must first approve all drugs that are sold in the United States. The approval can be a very long process that sometimes takes up to twelve years. The process will extend from the time a new drug is first developed in the lab, goes through all of the required testing, is approved, and finally reaches the consumer. This process can be very difficult for patients who are diagnosed with serious diseases and medical conditions, and are eager to try new treatments

Getting FDA Approval

Pharmaceutical companies must take responsibility for testing their drugs, which is why protections like the FDA exist. People in the United States are lucky to have access to the safest and most advanced pharmaceutical system anywhere in the world, and that this is just one of the many benefits of living in this country. The agency makes sure that both brand-name and generic medications work the way they are supposed to, and that their health benefits are greater than any possible risks. A team of CDER physicians, chemists, and other scientists review the company's data and proposed labeling. Before any pharmaceuticals can be sold in the United States, they must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

If their independent and unbiased review verifies that the drug does what the company says and that its health benefits outweigh any known risks, then the drug is approved for sale. These tests go through a series of standard tests that measure how the drug works in laboratory tests, animal tests, and finally human tests. Once that testing is complete, the drug company sends the results of their testing to the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, or CDER. Though this process may seem surreptitious or even wasteful, it is a necessary part of the system that prevents the consumer from simply making guesses about the safety of ingesting these man-made substances. The FDA serves the people, assuring the health of the masses and population collectively.

Working With Regulators: How to Keep Your Ship Afloat

If you have a company that is subject to federal or state regulations (more so than other companies) such as a pharmaceutical company or transportation company, you will have more contact with investigators and inspectors than the vast majority of other companies. Because of this, you will likely need a department within the company that works directly with these inspectors and other agents of the state so that you are in full compliance with the law. Getting caught cutting corners and skipping federal and state regulation is much more costly than taking the initiative to ensure compliance. In some cases, the fines and other sanctions imposed on businesses for infractions are less costly than the damage done to the company’s reputation.

Ensuring compliance with state and federal regulations should be a high priority for any company, especially those with many regulations, such as those that produce prescription and over-the-counter drugs or food products. Regulators ensure that the public is safe consuming your product. It’s your job to ensure that your product is safe for people to consume and to keep your company out of the tabloids. Many companies devote entire departments to maintaining good standing within the public eye.

How to Become a Doctor

Being a doctor is a common dream for children today. Saving someone’s life is an awesome feeling, and working as a medical doctor is an excellent way to give back to society and help people who need it most. Earning the prestige and humbling responsibility of being a doctor takes many years. Many who attempt to become doctors fail at some point in this rigorous process. A small percentage of people who start on the educational career path to becoming a doctor actually make it. Here’s how to get started:

  • When looking at colleges, find a school with a respected pre-med program. These programs teach students the basics of being a doctor, and feature classes in anatomy, physiology, and more.
  • If you earn good grades in pre-med, you will have the opportunity to apply for medical school. Classes in medical school are ultra-competitive, and many flunk out. Usually, medical school lasts two to three years, depending on which kind of medicine you want to focus on.
  • Once you’re out of school, you have to try your hand in the real world. To gain real-world experience, most recent medical school graduates do a residency in a hospital anywhere in the United States. Depending on the medical discipline you choose, you can expect to spend a year or two at a hospital learning how to be a great doctor.
