On January 27, 2021 a coalition of 28 public health groups and opioid crisis organizations sent a letter to the Biden Administration requesting that Woodcock’s position as Acting Commissioner be a very short transition prior to President Joe Biden nominating a Commissioner who has a track record focused on public health. In their letter, they wrote that “as the Director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) for more than 25 years, Dr. Woodcock presided over one of the worst regulatory agency failures in U.S. history” referring to the opioid crisis which has led to more than 500,000 opioid-related overdose deaths and millions of cases of opioid addiction. The letter accused Woodcock’s FDA division of consistently putting the interests of opioid manufacturers ahead of public health, often over-ruling its own scientific advisors and ignoring the pleas of public health groups, state Attorneys General, and outraged victims of the opioid crisis. Examples of improper opioid decisions mentioned in the letter include “approving Opana without adequate evidence of safety or long-term efficacy, approving Zohydro despite a vote of 11-2 against approval by a scientific advisory committee, and approving promotion of OxyContin for children as young as 11 years old.”
