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.
