AMP presents at FDA meeting on regulating diagnostics
Date:7/20/2010

College Park, MD (July 20, 2010): The Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) participated in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) public meeting on the oversight of laboratory developed tests (LDTs). Dr. Karen Mann, President of AMP, served on the second panel of the meeting titled, Clinical Laboratory Challenges. Additionally, Dr. Elaine Lyon, Chair of the AMP Professional Relations Committee, presented public comments. "AMP believes that LDTs are an essential and central component of medical practice," said Dr. Lyon, "Without LDTs, the practice of medicine that we know today would be severely reduced in scope."

LDTs continue to play essential and formative roles in delivery of preventative care, diagnosis, and disease management, and AMP believes that only high quality, clinically and analytically valid diagnostic tests should be performed in clinical laboratories. Also, all laboratories should meet CLIA standards, adhere to established guidelines, and seek appropriate certifications and accreditations.

AMP believes that a regulatory model should not interfere with the practice of medicine, and it is important to recognize the value of the current oversight system for enabling clinical laboratories to rapidly incorporate new findings into practice and to modify existing laboratory tests and their usage in accordance with advances in our understanding of clinical utility and disease pathogenesis. Dr. Lyon noted, "Nimble innovation in new test development is crucial to our ability to respond to emerging public health challenges, which was evident during the 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak."

There is a lack of review of current and proposed oversight models. In its remarks, AMP encouraged the FDA to collect data and assess the effectiveness of existing oversight models prior to implementing new approaches, as it will be extremely important to demonstrate that any propo
