FDA To Hold Two-Day Meeting On Off-Label Drug Marketing

The FDA, however, has avoided doing so. The agency has regularly voiced concern that public health could be jeopardized if a drug maker distributes information about an unapproved use that has not been proven safe or effective.
As we have reported previously, the industry effort accelerated after a 2012 ruling by a federal appeals court that overturned the criminal conviction of a Jazz Pharmaceutical sales rep, who was prosecuted for encouraging doctors to prescribe a drug for unapproved uses. The court ruled his speech was protected, since the information was truthful and not misleading.
