Congress gives FDA ultimatum on compounding
from MedPage Today
House Republicans have given the FDA an ultimatum in the debate over the current fungal meningitis outbreak: Action won't be taken to give the agency more authority over compounding pharmacies unless the FDA forks over documents the lawmakers requested more than a month ago. Leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee recently wrote the FDA a letter demanding the documents the committee requested regarding the outbreak. Lawmakers are seeking to understand what the FDA knew and when about the safety of the practices of the New England Compounding Center.
