DANGEROUS DRUGS AND MEDICAL DEVICES
Each year in the United States, a growing number of medical devices are approved for consumer use by the FDA through an expedited, approval process known as the fast-track 510k Approval Program. Instead of subjecting these medical devices to rigorous clinical trials and studies, the manufacturers of the devices must simply demonstrate to the FDA that they are "substantially equivalent" to other U.S. legally marketed devices. Unfortunately, subtle changes in the design or use of the medical device can result in serious and harmful implications for consumers.
In addition, adverse events occurring with drugs and devices are often under-reported to the FDA, resulting in the continued production of dangerous medical devices and drugs.
