  • This client alert discusses enforcement activity by FDA’s Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications (DDMAC) during the first six months of 2010. The frequency with which DDMAC issued enforcement letters from January through June 2010 was almost twice that of 2009 and more than three times that of any of the preceding three years. In this alert, we analyze trends in the enforcement letters from the first half of 2010 and discuss two key issues: the presentation of risk information and disease awareness communications.
