Some lawmakers in Washington have been arguing that the FDA's tougher safety stance has slowed down the pace of drug approvals and hurting the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. According to Krishan Maggon, a Geneva-based pharmaceuticals consultant, the number of new biotech drugs approved in the U.S. has remained in the 20 to 25 range during the past four years, while in Europe the figure was a record-low 14 last year.

Janet Woodcock, the head of the FDA's drug division, defended the FDA's role, saying challenges being faced by the biotech and pharmaceutical industry are related to high failure rates of drugs in the development process rather than FDA regulations.
