Waxman Quoted on Health Care Under Obama Administration

27 January 2010 IRB Advisor News

Foley Partner Mark Waxman was quoted in an article titled “What impact will Obama administration have on human subjects research?” in the February 1, 2010 issue of IRB Advisor. Waxman discusses proposed changes to the health care industry under the Obama administration, stating that a possible change would be the lifting of the ban on federal funding of stem cell research and an increase in the number of stem cell trials. He adds that two bills to watch are the Fair Access to Clinical Trials act, which would strengthen a national data base of clinical trials information, and the Physician Payments Sunshine Act of 2008, which calls for transparency in physician relationships with pharmaceutical and device companies.
