Janet Woodcock, head of the FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research is under investigation for ethics violations on the basis of a complaint filed by a drug generics manufacturer Amphastar that she had inappropriate ties to rival manufacturer Momenta Pharmaceuticals for a generic version of the blood-thinner Levenox for which they both sought FDA approval.

It’s interesting to think that a possible remedy to the FDA’s close ties with pharmaceutical companies and device manufacturers might come from some of the companies themselves, complaining about the unfair advantage that other companies enjoy due to their professional relationships with individuals at the FDA.
