CFSAN says it will support increased supplement science in 2000
The Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), the branch
of the FDA that regulates dietary supplements, is looking for ways to
facilitate new research on supplements and herbs. The center will consider
working with university research centers, the NIH, and the Institute
of Medicine to reach this goal. The formation of a dietary supplement
advisory committee is also a possibility, according to CFSAN Director
Joseph Levitt. The committee would assist the agency in establishing
policy concerning supplements.
