FDA should build a "transparent basis for a new position on ephedra" by immediately releasing all new adverse event reports without an accompanying agency analysis, five dietary supplement industry groups say in a March 10 letter to Commissioner Jane Henney, MD. The agency also should "propose and make public in advance criteria for evaluation methods that will define the process that is appropriate for reviewing ephedra products in light of the new AERs and in the context of other necessary data, including consumption data," AHPA, CHPA, CRN, NNFA and UNPA say.
