The FDA at work

(WebMD Health News) The FDA has approved Oxytrol for Women, the first over-the-counter treatment for overactive bladder in women 18 and older… Oxytrol helps relax the overactive bladder muscle that leads to symptoms such as the sudden need to urinate and leaking of urine. It will still only be available in prescription form for men. Oxytrol for Women is in the form of a patch, applied to the skin every four days, Merck says.
(MedPage Today) After a long delay, the FDA approved the oral drug alogliptin (Nesina) for treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes, as well as two products combining alogliptin with other antidiabetic drugs.
(Medical News Today) A robot that allows patients to communicate with doctors via a telemedicine system that can move around on its own has just received 510(k) clearance by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
