Established in 1906, the U.S. Food and Drug Administratio? (FDA) is charged with protecting public health. Under this mandate, the federal agency regulates drugs and medical devices to ensure their safety and effectiveness. But is the FDA failing this mandate? Some argue that the FDA's long and costly approval process stifles innovation and keeps life-changing treatments from the market, but defenders contend that the process is essential to ensure safety and protect public health. Is the FDA too cautious in approving new drugs and medical devices? Is it ever appropriate to sacrifice safety for speed?
