FDA summarized its gains in dealing with drug shortages in a Feb. 5 annual report on actions taken in 2013 to prevent or mitigate shortage situations, as required by the FDA Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) of 2012.

Committee that it was able to prevent 170 shortages in 2013. Armed with such advance warnings, Douglas Throckmorton, deputy director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), explained that the agency can look for other manufacturers able to ramp up production to fill gaps; expedite reviews and inspections of alternative producers; and exercise “enforcement discretion” when a compliance action might lead to production halts that could limit supplies. Such actions reflect agency consideration of the potential risks of permitting distribution of a drug with quality problems vs. the benefits to

FDA’s drug shortages annual report outlines a number of specific actions, such as appointing drug shortage coordinators in the Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) to oversee CDER and field force activities. CDER addressed shortages by expediting reviews through June 2013 of 62 applications for new generic drugs and for more than 100 supplements for generics, brands, and biological products. The agency also moved quickly to conduct 63 inspections and permitted manufacturers to use release testing and

2011 to 261 in 2012 and to 288 through June 2013 – an indication that many supply problems don’t have ready solutions. In fact, active shortages tripled between 2007 and 2012, noted Marcia Crosse, healthcare director at the Government Accountability Office (GAO), at the House hearing. GAO confirmed that FDA was doing more to prevent new shortages and advised the agency to improve its information systems to identify risk factors for potential shortages early enough to resolve them. FDA said it was initiating such strategies. And most Republican critics applauded their

GAO agreed that ongoing drug manufacturing problems, for both active ingredients and finished products, remain a main factor underlying disruptions in pharma supply chains, particularly for sterile injectibles. Longer-term solutions thus require an industry commitment to quality production of drugs and biologics, noted Ilisa Bernstein, deputy director of CDER’s Office of Compliance, at the CBI Pharmaceutical Compliance conference in January. Bernstein called on pharma companies to invest in new manufacturing facilities instead of trying to patch up old, deteriorating plants. FDA would like to see more redundancy in manufacturing systems to create back-up capacity, as well as identification of additional suppliers “waiting in
