Bradley Merrill Thompson, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the Washington, DC, office, was quoted in an article titled "New Regulatory Environment Needed for Mobile Apps."

Following is an excerpt:

Bradley Thompson, general counsel for the mHealth Regulatory Coalition, called on FDA to become a bit stricter with medical app developers who are pushing programs that haven't been evaluated for safety or medical efficacy. "I have actually never seen FDA be more hospitable to technology than they are right now," he said. "The bad news is they've actually almost taken it too far. They have not gone after companies that are blatantly over the line."
