FDA Gives Guidance on Laboratory Developed Tests


The FDA released what it says is draft guidance that includes a proposed oversight framework for regulating laboratory developed tests (LDTs). The proposed framework is essentially the same as the FDA released to Congress early in its development. As proposed, the agency will continue to exercise “enforcement discretion” over LDTs. Comments are due within 120 days from October 3rd.
