ACTION ALERT — Tell the FDA That Regulating LDTs as Devices is a Bad Idea

Posted July 16, 2014
Laboratory-developed tests (LDTs) are diagnostic tests developed and performed by local labs. They are widely used—thousands of different LDTs are available—and include genetic tests, tests for rare conditions, and companion diagnostics. LDTs are vital tools for personalized medicine because labs can even create custom diagnostic tests.  Other diagnostic tests—in vitro diagnostic (IVD) test kits—are regulated by the FDA as “devices.” Commonly, these are products containing all or most of the components needed to perform a test, which are then packaged and commercially distributed. The FDA is considering whether to regulate LDTs the same way, which would mean each test would have an evidentiary mountain to climb—difficult when tests are custom-designed for one particular patient!  Read more and TAKE ACTION to tell the FDA that laboratory-developed tests should not be regulated as devices!

Guys: Your Cellphone is Hurting Your Sperm

Posted July 23, 2014
Four in 10 US homes are cell-phone only, meaning they’ve ditched their landlines entirely.1 This is twice the rate in 2009, and a sign of just how integrated cell-phone use is in our culture.  Among certain demographics, the reliance on cell phones as the only household phone is even higher.
