Ask a question


Regulation of therapeutic goods is carried out by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or F.D.A., for all medical and veterinary products placed on the market. Authorization of a product takes into account the benefits and the risks associated with the consumption of the drug. The request for authorization consists of thousands of pages detailing the studies carried out on the drug, especially on its chemical properties, its beneficial effects, its undesirable effects, and the processes of its manufacturing.
