As complaints are not desired by any organization, medical device manufacturers are submitted to treat each complaint in a prompt and professional manner, submitted to regulations.

Based 2,323 California biomedical companies research, here are the main 10 threats those companies has reported on

  • #1 – FDA regulatory / environment
  • #3 – R&D productivity
  • #7 – Intellectual property protections
  • #8 – Ability to demonstrate effectiveness
  • #9 – Product liability
  • #10 – Unprepared workforce

The unspoken rule is that at least 50% of the studies published even in top tier academic journals – Science, Nature, CellPNAS, etc… – can’t be repeated. More than that if there was a development behind those studies it was impossible to recreate the documentations requires utilizing their business potential.

According to the same research the following answers given to the question: Why did the company delay the research or development project? Were as follows:

  • 40.2% – Funding not available (Second Round)
  • 27.8% – Regulation (FDA, EPA, SEC)
  • 25.8% – Change in corporate priorities or strategy
  • 4.1% – layoffs
  • 7.2% – Other
