    FDA Regulation of Mobile Apps

    in Health

    Nathan Cortez, JD co-wrote an article on FDA regulation of mobile apps published in the July 24, 2014 issue of NEJM. Luckily, we snagged an opportunity to interview him - you can listen here.

    We covered a wide variety of topics including:

    Why regulate mHealth anyway?
    The new FDA guidance — what needs to be regulated and what does not?
    How does the FDA handle at continual updates of mobile health products – so different from the pharmaceuticals that they regulate?  How do they decide whether an update constitutes a major change, requiring re-review and one that is minor and does not?
    What is “substantially equivalence” and how is it being used in mHealth
    How does the FDA handle mHealth products that provide consumer decision support (CDS)?  What is the difference between low risk and high risk CDS?
    Does the FDA have the right people/processes in place to provide oversight of mHealth?

    Professor Cortez teaches and writes in the areas of health law, administrative law, and FDA law.  His research focuses on emerging markets in health care and biotechnology. Prof. Cortez has become one of the world’s leading legal scholars on medical tourism, patient mobility, and cross-border health insurance, and has published several articles and book chapters on the legal and ethical implications of these phenomena. His research also addresses mobile health technologies, how to regulate innovations that disrupt static regulatory regimes, the First Amendment restraints on FDA regulation (including FDA's graphic tobacco warnings), immigration federalism, and alternative modes of regulation.

    HIFU for Prostate Cancer Finally Gets the FDA Nod. What to expect.

    in Health

    After more than 10 years of clinical trials, the Food and Drug Administration on October 9 approved the first high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) device for ablation of prostate tissue. HIFU has already been approved for use in prostate tissue outside the US, and more than 50,000 men globally have been treated with focused ultrasound for prostate cancer. The option of a non-invasive procedure that can selectively target and treat diseased tissue is very appealing for prostate cancer patients. We are talking to Dr.Stephen Scionti of Sarasota Prostate Cancer Center on HIFU, its implementation here in America and how HIFU can help prostate cancer patients.

    Medical Writing Institute CDC and FDA

    in Health

    We collected our amazing antibiotic plant on the shores of Lake Mbezi and are scartching our heads, trying to figure out the best way to get this plant into a form that can save the lives of folks with antibiotic-resistant diseases.

    But back up, just because we saw miraculous healing, how do we know it has antibiotic properties? And how do we know that the world needs another antibiotic? We visit the CDC, the world's best and biggest health accountant.

    And then we headed north to the FDA, to find out how they make sure that plants can be used for treatment.

    Is your health freedom at risk? Who decides what type of health care is best for you? Do you support homebirth or herbalism? Do you believe you have the right to choose what food you eat? The FDA has something to say about that, and you probably won’t like it.
