  • The U.S. House of Representatives passed the legislation last week; when enacted, it will authorize the FDA to collect user fees from industry to fund the review of innovator drugs, medical devices, generic drugs, and biosimilar biologics, according to the FDA.

    The Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance (MITA) said it applauded the bipartisan efforts of the House and Senate to reauthorize the program, which secures employment for thousands of Americans and brings more devices to market in a timely manner, according to the organization.
