Gruenin^ conceded that the drus apparently is safe. • j Dr. Harry F. Dowling, chair- > map of the AMA Council on Drugs, testified that the AMA does not "endorse" drugs, but noj said it does comment on them' and had done so in the case of flagy] "before FDA saw fit to release it for general sale." He agreed that the AMA ha'l ; described the drug as "highly effective" without waiting for; FDA approval of its safety and efficacy, but he said "it is tho function of a private agency to act independently in matters of j this kind." Dowling. who heads the Department of Medicine at the University of Illinois, said the A'MA. unlike the FDA, is not a government regulatory agency and that its action was simply "an educational statement beamed to obstetricians."
