Drug Compounding: Clear Authority and More Reliable Data Needed to Strengthen FDA Oversight
Marcia Crosse (au)
Drug compounding is the process by which a pharmacist combines, mixes, or alters ingredients to create a drug tailored to the medical needs of an individual. Compounding is typically used to prepare drugs that are not commercially available, such as a drug for a patient who is allergic to an ingredient in a mass-produced pharmaceutical product. An outbreak of fungal meningitis in 2012 linked to contaminated compounded drugs has raised concerns about state and federal oversight of drug compounding. This report addresses (1) the status of the Food and Drug Admin.äó»s (FDAäó»s) authority to oversee drug compounding, and the gaps, if any, between state and federal authority; (2) how FDA has used its data and authority to oversee drug compounding; and (3) the actions taken or planned by states or national pharmacy organizations to improve oversight of drug compounding.
