“In a nonapproved case, it’s essentially a little research project going on because we don’t know if these tissues and structures in that area are going to behave in the same way as the tissue the device was approved for,” said Stephen Li, the president of Medical Device Testing and Innovations of Sarasota, Fla., a company that develops materials for medical implants and a consultant to the F.D.A. panel.
Patients aren’t always aware that treatments they are having are off-label. The F.D.A. prohibits companies from marketing unapproved uses.

Chip implants shown to cause cancer, f

Late last year, Albrecht unearthed at the Harvard medical library three studies noting cancerous tumors in some chipped mice and rats, plus a reference in another study to a chipped dog with a tumor. She forwarded them to the AP, which subsequently found three additional mice studies with similar findings, plus another report of a chipped dog with a tumor.
Asked if it had taken these studies into account, the FDA said VeriChip documents were being kept confidential to protect trade secrets

When the FDA approved the device, it noted some Verichip risks: The capsules could migrate around the body, making them difficult to extract; they might interfere with defibrillators, or be incompatible with MRI scans, causing burns. While also warning that the chips could cause "adverse tissue reaction," FDA made no reference to malignant growths in animal studies.
Did the agency review literature on microchip implants and animal cancer?
Dr. Katherine Albrecht, a privacy advocate and RFID expert, asked shortly after VeriChip's approval what evidence the agency had reviewed
