FDA Regulates Internet Search
Categories: Links


The Food and Drug Administration wants to regulate Internet search. At the least, searches that are mediated by regulated medical companies, and tie disease keywords to specific, regulated medical products.

“Typing the key word ‘cancer’ or ‘diabetes’ into MDR’s product search field located on its website” brings up a number of products, FDA observed. Because those products are associated with that particular search term, the company is thus “implying that its products are intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of such diseases,” FDA said.
