In this episode, Lowell M. Zeta, who just rejoined the firm after serving as Senior Counselor to the Commissioner at FDA, is going to talk to Philip Katz about his work on cross-cutting and high-priority initiatives promoting innovation and addressing public health issues, including the COVID-19 pandemic response and the decision to make the move back to Hogan Lovells.


In this episode, I talk with Michael Druckman, Jane Kalinina and Bert Lao about the the impact of COVID-19 on cell, tissue, and gene therapy products. We touch base on the enforcement discretion for tissue products and those transitioning under explicit enforcement and approval to satisfy good manufacturing practices under the FDA. In addition, we focus on orphan drug sameness and individualized therapies issues. Overall an interesting overview on the cell, tissue, and gene therapy products and its market developments.


In this episode, I talk with Suzanne Levy Friedman and Michael Penners about how both U.S. and Germany have seen a lot of legal/regulatory activity around advertising and promotion of COVID-19 test kits. Suzanne and Michael are giving an overview of efforts/authority with respect to regulating advertising and promotion of medical devices/products in the two jurisdictions, especially one area where this comes up frequently with clients is the increasing trend of promoting devices on social media. It was interesting to hear about these two jurisdictions and how both markets are regulated.


In this episode, I talk with David Horowitz about his work around bringing hand sanitizers onto the market in the US.
