Rheinstein PH, Hugstad PS.
The regulation of prescription drug advertising
1978; 407-416


Since the passage of the drug amendments of 1962, the Food and Drug Administration’s Bureau of Drugs has been given regulatory authority and responsibility over prescription drug advertising. In the more than 15 intervening years, a number of changes have occurred in the structure and functioning of the FDA unit charged with regulating drug advertising and the advertising practices of the pharmaceutical industry. This chapter presents a historical and evolutionary review of the regulation of prescription drug advertising and discusses areas of future interest and concern to the present Division of Drug Advertising.
