Dunne and Guthrie Co-Author Second Article in FDLI Update Series on OTC Drugs

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Partner Debra Dunne and Associate Brian Guthrie have co-authored the second in a series of three articles on over-the-counter (OTC) drugs for the Food and Drug Law Institute’s (FDLI’s) Update magazine. Titled “Crafting Changes for the Future: The Use of Technology to Expand Access to Medications,” part two, which appears in the May/June 2014 issue of Update, addresses “the current and emerging technologies that may serve as conditions of safe use” that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will require to make prescription medications available as nonprescription—or OTC—medications. Among the technologies discussed are interactive kiosks, mobile medical apps and pharmacogenomic tests.
