In January of 2017, the FDA released a 63 page memorandum on First Amendment considerations related to off-label communications, as well as a draft guidance entitled “Medical Product Communications that are Consistent with the FDA-Required Labeling”. This guidance comes on the heels of a lively two day meeting the FDA held in November to address stakeholder concerns and challenges on communications regarding off-label use of drugs and medical devices. While the draft guidance provides some clarity around permissible on-label communications, uncertainty remains for off-label communications and the turn of the new administration may delay FDA providing any further certainty.
