By Blair Childs, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs, Premier
Members of the Premier alliance wish to extend their gratitude to FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb for his superb leadership of the agency. From working to speed approval of generics and biosimilars, to establishing an expedited approval process for shortage drugs, to expediting the approval of new drugs, to cracking down on abuses of Citizen’s Petitions and the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies, to exposing pay-for-delay deals, to undertaking a serious effort to assess and remedy the causes of drug shortages, to advancing real-world evidence, Mr. Gottlieb has left an indelible mark. His work will create greater competition for drugs and reduce their prices. Thank you for your leadership.
