"Decisions regarding biodefense preparedness have critical consequences to public health," said Dr. Andrea Meyerhoff, principal of GexGroup and former director of WMD Defense for the Department of Defense and former director of Counterterrorism, U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

"Because of this, it is crucial that a multidisciplinary panel of government, academic and industry scientists, lawyers and public policymakers advise and guide government policy on medical countermeasures," Meyerhoff said.

Specialists call for testing of anthrax drug

"The preliminary information available is promising, but it has not been studied in an animal model," said Andrea Meyerhoff, the FDA's bioterrorism director.

But the agency doesn't prevent doctors from using any drug for purposes other than those FDA specifically approves, she said.
Last month, Johnson & Johnson and other drug companies with products in the same antibiotic class as Cipro offered to donate massive supplies to the national pharmaceutical stockpile in the event of a large-scale anthrax emergency.To accept that offer, however, federal officials would have to grant the company's request that Levaquin be approved as an anthrax drug; so far, they have not.
No health officials have suggested Levaquin was an inappropriate treatment.Several attending physicians said they initially believed they were treating pneumonia, and many infectious disease specialists regard Levaquin as the best choice for that.
