Medical food, also known as food for special medical purposes (FSMP), is a category of foods for special dietary uses at the borderline to medicines. FSMPs are specially processed or formulated and presented for the dietary management of patients and may be used only under medical supervision. As new, disruptive developments in medical, diagnostic and nutrition science are emerging, FSMPs will affect the practice of modern healthcare and the nature of patient care. Join us as we explore the benefits of FSMPs, as well as global issues that apply the law to emerging scientific and regulatory and policy matters for the dietary disease management of patients.
