Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

The FDA has recently been cracking down on Compounding Pharmacy facilities due to the fungal meningitis outbreak in 2012 that caused 60 deaths and 750 cases of infection. As a result of this, the Agency is not confident in the ability of Compounding Facilities to maintain a state of control on their facilities and the conditions under which the product is compounded. Many of the insanitary conditions described by the Agency are outlined in this guidance document.

The process of aseptic filling of final drug products provide an excellent reference when it comes putting the proper procedures and controls into place for preventing many of the insanitary conditions outlined in the guidance document. By understanding how final drug product is aseptically filled, Compounding Pharmacies can implement many of the controls used. The guidance reference the industry uses to process products aseptically is the Aseptic Processing Guidance Document –Sept 2004. By reviewing and implementing the concepts in this document, many of the examples of insanitary conditions outline the proposed guidance document can be eliminated.
