WASHINGTON - The drumbeat for FDA reform emanating from Capitol Hill grew louder
last week with the introduction of medical device reform legislation, a hearing
examining charges that the agency's informal rulemaking violates federal law,
and a vow from House Speaker Newt Gingrich to radically reform the agency.
At the same time, it also is becoming clear that reform legislation is unlikely
to be enacted this year.
