Medical testing is a controversial subject. Patients want to believe that the products they are prescribed are safe and will help them recover, but is that really the case? With all kinds of medical devices being recalled, do you feel you can trust the Food and Drug Administration to regulate the devices that doctors use in treatment?
For example, the DePuy hip implant, recently taken off the market due to its status as an Ohio defective medical device, passed FDA inspections for safety only because it was similar to a hip implant already on the market. It was not tested in humans before the FDA’s acceptance of its use, according to Drug Watch.
Another Drug Watch article claims a study shows that most recalled defective medical devices are not put through the rigorous testing that drugs must go through before hitting the market. The FDA does not currently require human testing of devices that already have similar devices on the market, as was the case with Ohio defective medical device DePuy hip implant.
Do you think this is a problem for the FDA’s reputation and for citizens concerned about Ohio defective medical devices and the doctors who treat patients with them?
