Tools for Understanding Drug Regulatory Process in USA


At the onset of New Year, 2012 I was pleasantly surprised to see a new look of  FDA's website where the browsing through the contents was a pleasure. You may be wondering, why I post many articles related to Drug Regulatory Process in USA ? Understanding Drug regulatory process in USA is a easy task , thanks to the various tutorials and tools offered by FDA and its affiliated websites. In this post I will give the links in FDA and its affiliated website where we could get useful tools for understanding Drug Regulatory Process in USA.

The tools and resources are as follows-

1. CDER Learn
CDER Learn has the following course list-
  • CDER World
  • The Past, Present, and Future of FDA Human Drug Regulation
  • Bringing an Unapproved Drug Into Compliance 
  • Risk assessment and communication
  • FDA Medwatch and Patient Safety 
  • Field Investigators: Adverse Drug Effects (ADE) Investigators (2000)
  • The FDA Process for Approving Generic Drugs  
  • An Introduction to the Improved FDA Prescription Drug Labeling  
  • The courses are taught through a video interface .
  • There is also a knowledge check section .
This section provides the resources related to drugs, ranging from the guidances , types of applications, drug approvals and databases etc.

This is a recent addition to the FDA's website where the FDA's senior leadership and staff  write regarding various current topics of interest.

Hence, I  believe there is no point in wasting money for buying books and other resources for understanding Drug Regulatory Process in the USA. Of course, it is my personal opinion. I think that EMA and other advanced regulatory authorities could come up with learning tools on the lines of CDER learn etc to understand drug regulatory processes in their respective regions.
