The FDA alerted public about the risk for squamous cell carcinoma and various lymphomas in scar tissue around breast implants on Sep.8.

The global breast implants market is expected to grow from $2.10 billion in 2021 to $2.25 billion in 2022 and reach $2.90 billion in 2026, according to ReportLinker.

Given the critical need for new treatments for rare neurodegenerative diseases, the FDA and the National Institutes of Health, on Sep.14, launched a public-private partnership to advance the knowledge of neurodegenerative diseases and promote the development of treatments for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other rare neurodegenerative diseases.

On Sep.29, the FDA approved Amylyx Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s (AMLX) Relyvrio to treat patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a rare disease that affects as many as 30,000 in the United States.
