Not really. The FDA approves a medicine or medical devise for use by humans.
What a doctor does with it after that point is his own responsibility, but
it is NOT ruled out by the FDA. If they haven't tested a drug or device in
a different use or combination, then they just haven't tested it.......

These tests are expensive and time consuming, plus the FDA has only so much 
in resources, so it's left open-ended as a matter of course.
