Imprimis Announces Compounding Pharmacy Strategy
Compounding Pharmacy Strategy
One of our key strategies is the use of compounding pharmacies to formulate our proprietary compounded drug formulations and technologies and distribute them to physicians and patients. Governed by state and federal statutes and regulations, including the Drug Quality and Security Act of 2013 (DQSA), compounding pharmacies work with physicians to develop medications for individually identified patients. Examples of compounded formulations include medications with alternative dosage strengths or unique dosage forms, such as topical creams or gels, suspensions or solutions with more tolerable drug delivery vehicles. A physician may also work together with a pharmacist to repurpose or reformulate FDA-approved drugs via the compounding process to meet a patient’s specific medical needs. We are strategically attentive to the ideas generated by pharmacists dealing directly with doctors and their patients to address specific and often unmet patient needs, and we believe in and support the important role and contribution of the compounding pharmacist and compounding pharmacies in the U.S. healthcare system.
