Rare Pediatric and Neglected Tropical Diseases: FDA Responds With Guidance

Capitol Hill asks for a lot of things in legislation, and federal agencies eventually do respond. The FDA issued reactions recently to two requests made in bills enacted prior to the current Congress.

Several years ago, in a drug approval reauthorization bill, Congress called on the FDA to devise a strategy to enhance the development of new drugs to patients – particularly children – with rare diseases. On Tuesday, the FDA released its strategic plan for rare pediatric diseases.

Separately, the 2010 Agriculture-FDA spending bill called on the agency to issue guidance on developing drugs for the treatment and prevention of neglected tropical diseases. The FDA late last week issued guidance to industry stakeholders on developing treatments for use in developing countries.

    A lot of what you say is astonishingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This particular piece really did switch the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. However there is actually 1 issue I am not too comfortable with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core theme of your point, let me see just what the rest of your visitors have to say.Nicely done.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you would repair if you werent too busy searching for attention.
