Research Tools: FDA Launches Drugs@FDA Mobile App
From the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
…the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is announcing the availability of the Drugs@FDA Express mobile application. On this mobile app, the public can search for information about FDA-approved brand and generic prescription and over-the-counter human drugs and biological therapeutic products.
The FDA currently operates the Drugs@FDA webpage, which includes information about drug products approved by the agency, including patient information, drug labeling, approval letters, reviews and other information.
The Drugs@FDA Express mobile app is a streamlined version of Drugs@FDA, allowing users to search on their mobile devices for certain product information based on product name, active ingredient or application number using a single search box.
Some information (like labeling supplements and approval letters) won’t be available on the app, but can be found on the Drugs@FDA webpage.
The app will also feature the most recent product approvals, within seven days, links to the Drugs@FDA glossary and frequently asked questions.
