Compounding Pharmacies: Steps To Avoid Issues with the FDA, DEA, Pharmacy Boards, and Patent Holders

In light of the New England Compounding Center tragedy, the state boards are becoming more assertive and the jurisdictional powers of the FDA have increased. This program will discuss the rules and regulations that compounding pharmacies must currently follow. This program will “gaze into the crystal ball” and discuss the additional regulatory actions that will take place in the not-too-distant future. Separate and apart from governmental regulation, this program will discuss the rights of manufacturers that own drug patents and steps that the compounding pharmacy can take to avoid litigation from a manufacturer to enforce its patent rights.
