FDA 針對14家非法銷售癌症治療物品的公司采取行動

27-04-2017

 

美國食品和藥物管理局(FDA)於2017年4月25日向非法銷售欺騙聲稱可以預防、診斷、治療或治愈癌症的超過65項產品的14家美國公司發布了警告信。這類產品的營銷和銷售均未經 FDA的批準,最常見的的是在網站上或者在社交媒體平台上銷售。 

 

“消費者不應該使用這些產品或者類似的未經證實的產品,因為它們可能不安全,不可能阻止人們尋求適當的和可能拯救生命的癌症診斷或治療,”FDA 監管事務辦公室的執法和進口業務辦公室主任Douglas W. Stearn表示。“我們鼓勵人們保持警覺,無論是在線還是在商店,並且避免購買沒有證據證明有效的治療癌症的產品。患者應該向他們的醫療保健專業人員咨詢癌症的適當預防、診斷和治療事項。”

 

在沒有首先向FDA 證明其產品安全和對標示的用途具有功效的情況下營銷和銷售聲稱可以預防、診斷、治療、減輕或治愈疾病的產品,這是違反《聯邦食品、藥物和化妝品法案》的。今天發布的警告信中列出的非法銷售的產品種類眾多,如糖丸、外用藥膏、藥膏、油、點滴、糖漿、茶和診斷器材(如熱成像設備)。它們包括營銷供人和寵物使用的產品,這項產品在預防、逆轉或治愈癌症、殺死/抑制癌細胞或腫瘤方面做出了非法和未經證明的聲明,或者其他類似的抗癌聲明。

 

FDA 已經要求這14家公司回應,說明如何糾正違規。如果沒有立即糾正違規,則可能導致法律行動,包括扣押產品、禁令及/或刑事起訴。

 

作為FDA 保護消費者免遭癌症保健欺詐工作的一部分,FDA 在過去的10年已經發出了超過 90 封警告信,警告在網站、社交媒體和商店中營銷聲稱治療癌症的數以百計的欺詐產品的公司。雖然其中的許多公司停止了銷售產品或者做出欺詐性聲稱,部分由於公司可以輕鬆地把營銷業務搬遷到新的網站的原因,許多不安全和未經批準的產品繼續直接售給消費者。FDA繼續監視促銷和銷售未經證明的治療產品的公司,並且針對他們采取行動,旨在把對消費者的潛在危險減到最小,並且教育消費者了解這些風險。

 

FDA鼓勵醫療保健專業人員和消費者向該機構的

MedWatch https://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch 程序舉報與這些產品或類似產品相關聯的不良反應。
