Although his agency demonstrates few signs of it, FDA commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach again preached his commitment to openness and transparency. He made his comments on the Diane Rehm Show on National Public Radio on April 16. He agreed with Rehm that ?there seems to have been a breach of trust? in the public?s faith in FDA. The commissioner assured the listening audience that ?first and foremost? they ?need to know that there is only one purpose for FDA. That?s to serve [people], not to serve politicians, not to serve industries, not to serve anyone else other than them.

?We need to be able to communicate more effectively how we?re doing that,? von Eschenbach continued enthusiastically. To promote that, he said, FDA is redesigning its Web site ?to make it more effective and more user-friendly as a way of communicating. My coming on this show today is an effort to be responsive, to answer the questions that the public has. We will continue to work to improve. No matter how good we?ve been in the past, we will get even better in the future.?

The hour-long program heard von Eschenbach repeatedly emphasize his commitment to a number of issues. He said he is committed to protecting and promoting the public health and to taking user-fee money from industry but never direction from it.
