Comments for FDA General
5. General Comments Re. slowing approvals of drugs for animals, I believe the general public might be better served if you would eliminate the plethora of anti-bacterial soaps. One cannot readily find hand and body soaps that are not of the anti-bacterial formulation. I believe that has been shown to be part of the problem, and possibly a very large part of it. The cattle raising business is one in which it is very difficult for even the best of managers to be profitable. One reason is animal health problems. For the pharmaceutical industry to be hampered in developing better, safer medications will not serve ranchers well, nor will it ultimately serve the general public well. Sincerely, Maxine R.
