Lawmakers hope the proposed Drug Quality and Security Act will improve the safety of compounded drugs


#IVTEAM #Intravenous products: US Senate report “Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-IA), Ranking Member Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and HELP Committee members Senator Al Franken (D-MN), Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS), Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) today hailed Senate passage of legislation to help ensure the safety of compounded drugs and to track all prescription drugs from the time they are manufactured to the moment they are picked up at the drugstore. The Drug Quality and Security Act reflects a bipartisan, bicameral effort to address these drug safety and security issues. It is aimed at helping prevent a future public health crisis like the 2012 meningitis outbreak tied to the New England Compounding Center and securing the pharmaceutical supply chain. The bill has now cleared both houses of Congress and will go on to the President to be signed into law.”
