Reexamining drug regulation from the perspective of innovation policy: comment


Zweifel, Peter (2004). Reexamining drug regulation from the perspective of innovation policy: comment. Journal of Institutional and Theoretical Economics JITE, 160(1):136-141.

Abstract

This is a very colorful paper that makes for interesting reading. The author shows that the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) increasingly does not decide about market access to drugs only, but influences the innovation process as a whole. And although "information" does not appear in the title of the paper, the distribution of knowledge as affected by the FDA plays an important role at several stages of this process. For this reason, the body of this commentary is arranged according to the stages of the innovation process.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
