Pharmaceutical Quality, Security, and Accountability Act - Joint Support Letter

In response to S. 959, the Pharmaceutical Quality, Security, and Accountability Act, legislation regarding drug compounding, the Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics sent a joint comment letter to Sens. Tom Harkin and Lamar Alexander, chair and ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. The Pharmaceutical Quality, Security, and Accountability Act, specifically title I of the substitute amendment gives the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) additional tools it needs to ensure the safety of the compounded products pediatricians give their patients.
