FDA Opens Window for Pharma to Correct Misinformation Online
Wikipedia is at the Top of the List

Open Window for Correcting MisinformationThe pharmaceutical industry had to wait more than five years for FDA's Office of Prescription Drug Promotion (OPDP) to finally publish the guidance document "Internet/Social Media Platforms: Correcting Independent Third-party Misinformation About Prescription Drugs and Medical Devices" on June 18, 2014.

This article reviews the FDA's guidance on how pharmaceutical companies can respond to misinformation related to a firm's own FDA-approved or -cleared products when that information is created or disseminated by independent third parties on the Internet or through social media, regardless of whether that misinformation appears on a firm's own forum or an independent third-party forum or website.

Topics include (partial list):
  • Hosting Online Discussions
  • FDA Recommendations
  • Correcting Wikipedia Misinformation
  • The Freedom to Be Ignored
  • Should Pharma Correct Misinformation on Wikipedia?
