Newsletters Sign up for Daily Recap A roundup of STAT’s top stories of the day. About the Author Reprints In its latest to bid to set parameters around compounding, the US Food and Drug Administration last week issued a pair of draft guidelines to clarify when compounding pharmacies are permitted to make versions of commercially available medicines.Although federal law currently states that a compounder generally shouldn’t make copies of drugs that are approved for sale, the agency is getting more specific and wants to ensure that a true clinical need exists before a compounded version of an approved medicine drug is made for a patient.“The FDA is making a policy statement that you can’t just compound a copy and then market it,” said Elizabeth Jungman, director of public health at Pew Charitable Trusts, a nonprofit that studies health care issues. “There has to be a patient need. And it’s important from a safety perspective.”advertisement PharmalotFDA narrowly defines the ability of compounders to make approved medicines @Pharmalot By Ed Silverman July 11, 2016 Reprints A key issue has been the extent to which compounders can make medicines for patients in ways that may cross the line into more conventional drug manufacturing. The new law attempts to create boundaries, although the latest guidelines are designed to refine the FDA interpretation.For instance, the guidelines would permit compounders to make versions of brand-name drugs when a shortage exists or the brand-name medicine has been discontinued. Another example meeting the threshold of patient need might be a required change in formulation, such as different dosage strengths.But safety is not the only issue in play here. For instance, pointing to a lower price — in other words, a compounded version would be cheaper than a brand-name drug — is not justification for compounding an FDA-approved medicine.Brand-name drug makers would be less likely to invest in innovative medicines if a compounder — especially compounders that make large quantities of a medicine — is otherwise allowed to make and sell versions of treatments approved by the FDA, Jungman explained. Leave this field empty if you’re human: Similarly, generic drug makers may avoid seeking approval of copycat medicines if compounders can make copies of approved drugs, according to Robert Pollock, a former acting deputy director of the FDA Office of Generic Drugs, who now works at Lachman Consultants and advises drug makers.Of course, these are only draft guidelines — guidances in regulatory parlance — and are not set in stone. Manufacturers and others have an opportunity to comment. To date, the compounding industry has bristled at some restrictions contained in the new law.A spokeswoman for the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists, an industry trade group, told us the guidelines are still being reviewed and that there is no comment at this time. The episode cast a harsh spotlight on compounders, as well as FDA and state oversight. In response, a federal law called the Drug Quality and Security Act was passed to beef up FDA authority to inspect facilities and enforce regulations.advertisement Indeed, there are ongoing safety concerns surrounding compounding pharmacies ever since a scandal erupted four years ago. That’s when injectable steroids made by a compounder in the Boston area were linked to 64 deaths and more than 750 cases of fungal meningitis around the country.

first_imgPSC Golf from The Outback Golf BarMonday, April 13, Burapha A & B – StablefordThis year was the second Songkran that the Outback decided to play a home three-day tournament instead of going on tour, as many other societies choose to do.  The chosen courses were Burapha on Monday, Phoenix (Tuesday) and the final round at Khao Kheow on Thursday. We had a good turnout for the first day, considering that so many golfers were away, with 32 players were out on the A & B nines, twelve of them going on to play in all three days.Leading money winner Peter Nixon did the business again with a very fine 40 points to win Division A by four from Andre Coetzee (36), while Geoff Stimpson (35) took third and Phil Mitchell beat Mike Missler on c/b for fourth, both on 34. From left: Suzi Lawton, Tim Knight, Sugar Ray Handford and Peter Nixon.Division B went to Mathias Herman with the day’s second best score of 41 points, two clear of Jimmy Little who in turn was six ahead of Brian Wilkinson and Pat Regan tied on 33’s, with Brian getting the nod on c/b.The day’s top score came from Geoff Treloar, who had been here since the start of our Hua Hin tour but has rarely appeared on any of the leader-boards.  Geoff plays virtually every day when he is here on holiday but barely hits the ball more than 150 yards off the tee; last year we moved him up to the Silver Tee at Black Mountain where he produced a much better result.  It wasn’t until earlier this month, when we docked him four shots and put him off the silver tees at Phoenix that he won with 37 points, and he did it again today, having his last game before flying home he registered 42 points to take Division C.  Well done mate!Bob Lindborg & Barney both had 36’s and Tim Knight 35.There were four ‘2’s from Pat Regan (A6) and Andre Coetzee, Peter Hausberger & Ivan Plunkett (B3).Outback opinion: Weather – light cloud, cool breeze; Check in – friendly as always; Tee time – early; Fairways – hard, fast; Rough – light; Greens – average; Bunkers – well raked; Value for money – good; Pace of play – under four hours; Drink stations open – all open; Restaurant – not visitedDiv A (0-12)1st Peter Nixon (10) 40pts2nd Andre Coetzee (07) 36pts3rd Geoff Stimpson (08) 35pts4th Phil Mitchell (05) 34ptsDiv B (13-20)1st Mathias Hermann (15) 41pts2nd Jimmy Little (20) 39pts3rd Brian Wilkinson (20) 33pts4th Pat Regan (13) 33ptsDiv C (21+)1st Geoff Treloar (31) 42pts2nd Bob Lindborg (27) 36pts3rd Barney Clarkson (29) 36pts4th Tim Knight (30) 35ptsTuesday, April 14, Phoenix – StablefordAnother fabulous turnout of 28 players on a not so hot Songkran holiday gathered at Phoenix to play the Mountain and Ocean courses.  We got off to an early start with 3 groups on Mountain and 4 on Ocean.The greens on the Mountain course have recently been cored and sanded, which presented conditions less than ideal in comparison to the fabulous greens experienced at Burapha. However, Phoenix continues to provide good value and the necessary work done now will pay dividends in the next weeks and months as we continue our outings at this venue.On Day 2 of our Songkran tournament, we had three divisions with some great scores coming in, especially for the higher handicap divisions.Tim Knight said he was very relieved to play on greens so different from Burapha as it required less skill and he consequently finished with a fabulous 40 points, taking the third division honours.Division 2 was won by Eddy Beilby with 38 points and Division 1 went to Peter Nixon with 37, leading the field by 4 shots.  Peter is proving to be the most consistent player on his handicap as his good form continues. Well done to all our winners!After two days the leader-board looked like this: Peter Nixon (77), Tim Knight (75), Jimmy Little (69), Eddy Beilby (67) with Bruce McAdam and Geoff Stimpson both on 66.There were six ‘2’s from Peter Hausberger (M4), Geoff Stimpson & Barry Copestake (M8), Greg Barry & Mike Missler (O5) and Bill Hewitt (O7).Div A (0-11)1st Peter Nixon (09) 37pts2nd Greg Barry (09) 33pts3rd Andre Coetzee (06) 31ptsDiv B (12-19)1st Eddy Beilby (17) 39pts2nd Norm Cheetham (14) 37pts3rd Bill Hewitt (16) 35ptsDiv C (20+)1st Tim Knight (28) 40pts2nd John Langley (22) 39pts3rd Suzi Lawton (23) 32ptsThursday, April 16, Khao Kheow C & A – StablefordAfter resting on Wednesday, the last of three-day Public Holiday, we were at Khao Kheow today for the final round of our tournament.  The weather continued to behave itself, as it did all week and Khao Kheow was once again beautifully presented.Sugar Ray emerged from a three week break from golf to prove that he has lost none of his passion for this course and racked up a fantastic 42 points, which is no mean feat round here.  It was the day’s top score and gave him the win in Division B, six ahead of Murray Tompsett in second and Suzi Lawton, third.John O’Keefe won Division A with 37 points ahead of Kim Danboise (35) but our 2 day tournament leader, Peter Nixon, crumpled under pressure and could manage only 28 round this tricky track and that left the door wide open for Tim Knight, who doesn’t even like this course, to walk right through and score 34 points to win the overall.There were no ‘2’s.Div A (0-18)1st John O’Keefe (17) 37pts2nd Kim Danboise (12) 35pts3rd Eddy Beilby (18) 34pts4th Pat Regan (13) 34ptsDiv B (19+)1st Sugar Ray Handford (21) 42pts2nd Murray Tompsett (20) 36pts3rd Suzi Lawton (25) 36pts4th Tim Knight (28) 34ptsOverall Result1st Tim Knight 112pts2nd Peter Nixon 107pts3rd Eddy Beilby 102ptsT4th Suzi Lawton 99ptsT4th Jimmy Little 99ptsNote: The Outback Golf Bar is situated about 6km from Sukhumvit Road along Soi Siam Country.  Call Jack on 081 578 1956.last_img read more
