European commission official hits back at US criticism of EU reg system

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The European Commission has asked US regulators for evidence to back derogatory remarks about the EU regulatory system made by Jeff Shuren, director of the US FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health. These comments were made when, apparently backed into a corner while trying to defend his own medtech policies, Dr Shuren accused the EU of treating its patients as rodents in medical experiments (www.clinica.co.uk, 25 January 2011).
