AMP Responds to FDA Report on Oversight of Laboratory Developed Procedures (LDPs)

AMP has responded to FDA's recently released report titled "The Public Health Evidence for FDA Oversight of Laboratory Developed Tests: 20 Case Studies" with a detailed analysis of the laboratory developed procedures (LDPs) mentioned in the FDA report. After a careful and thorough examination of the LDPs mentioned in FDA's report, AMP concluded that FDA oversight would likely prevent few of the potential patient harms postulated by the Agency. Rather the Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS), which has statutory authority through the CLIA program, would have been more successful than FDA at addressing these potential problems.

AMP Endorses the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC)

AMP is pleased to endorse the CPIC sponsored draft manuscript Term Standardization for Clinical Pharmacogenetic Test Results: Alleles and Phenotypes. CPIC has assembled an international workgroup, utilized a Delphi process to develop their recommendations, and sought feedback from a number of professional organizations. We are confident that our members' expertise as molecular pathologists can contribute valuable insight and foundations upon which this and other CPIC projects may benefit.

Congressman Michael Burgess, MD, Speaks at Session on CLIA Modernization

The session at the AMP 2015 Annual Meeting provided an update on the latest developments in Washington, DC. "What concerns me most about the direction that FDA is going with regulation of LDPs is that it will add to the significant economic burden that laboratories now face and slow their ability to develop new tests to respond to pressing public healthcare needs,"  said Congressman Burgess.
