FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research is now offering the latest drug notices via podcasts for all interested:
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting health care professionals and consumers to the availability of audio broadcasts that provide emerging drug safety information. The broadcasts, commonly known as podcasts, can be transmitted to personal computers and personal audio players.
The service is part of the agency’s ongoing effort to broaden and speed its communications concerning the safety of marketed medications when unexpected adverse events are reported to FDA. The broadcasts are an addition to FDA’s traditional print- and Web-based public health advisories (PHAs) and anyone can subscribe to them for free at http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/podcast/default.htm.
