FDA Requests Nominations for TPSAC Voting Members

September 2, 2011

By Ricardo Carvajal

FDA published a Federal Register notice asking for nominations of individuals to serve as voting members on the Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee ("TPSAC").  The TPSAC has been ensnared in controversy due to allegations of bias and conflicts of interest among current and previous members.  As we noted in a prior blog posting, FDA's constitution of, and reliance on, the TPSAC is the subject of a lawsuit filed by Lorillard.  Doubtless FDA's selection of new voting members will be closely scrutinized.  Nominations are due by November 2.
