Wausau, WI (PRWEB) December 07, 2016
Dr. Greg Leyer, the Chief Scientific Officer of UAS Labs, was honored to present at the International Probiotic Association’s Washington DC workshop on November 2nd. The conference was an opportunity for both probiotic industry experts and government regulators to engage in dialog regarding probiotic dietary supplement regulations.
Dr. Leyer spoke about two main topics at the IPA Workshop. The first was the current approach to probiotic safety and the second was the New Dietary Ingredient Notification (NDIN) Draft Guidance document. The purpose of which was to present data and evidence to the FDA in order to discuss science-driven changes to the current guidance.
“I was very pleased to be asked to present at the IPA Workshop. My task was to present data to the FDA regarding a very specific area of the NDIN guidance document as it relates to probiotic fermentation changes and probiotic safety. The FDA was very open to hearing this point of view, and enhanced dialog between regulators and industry should lead to meaningful regulations that continue to put consumer safety at the forefront,” states Dr. Leyer.
