Senate passes Drug Quality and Security Act
On November 18, the Senate passed, without amendment, Title I of HR 3204, the Drug Quality and Security Act of 2013, which is now awaiting the President’s signature. The statute applies only to human drugs, and reinstates Section 503A of the FDCA absent any prohibition on soliciting prescriptions or advertising compounded products. Section 503A will now be enforceable throughout the country, ending a split between the 5th and 9th Circuit on its viability.
