The food and drug administration (FDA) of USA, is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products and medical devices. US-FDA approval means that the agency has determined that the “Benefits of the product outweigh the known risks for the intended use.” To find out if your drug has been approved by FDA, use Drugs @ FDA, a catalog of FDA – approved drug products. To get FDA approval, drug manufacturers must conduct lab animal and human clinical testing and submit their data to FDA. FDA will then review the data and may approve the drug. Manufacturers of drugs and devices that do require FDA approval may include “FDA APPROVED” On the products’ labeling , as long as the manufacturer has received a letter from FDA confirming its approval.
