PRLog - Feb. 21, 2013 - SAN FRANCISCO -- Description:
Medical foods play an important role in the management of patients with special dietary restrictions and needs. The designation of medical food by FDA implies special handling, labeling, distribution and manufacturing requirements.

This seminar will discuss the regulatory processes to designate and market a product as medical food. Common issues with FDA compliance will be discussed using case studies and potential solutions will be discussed.
