FDA Targets Tainted Dietary Supplements

You might recall, among the warnings and alerts recently issued, the FDA warned people to stop using Man Up Now, a product marketed for sexual enhancement, as it contains a variation of a drug ingredient found in Viagra that can lower blood pressure to a dangerous level.

The FDA intends to:
  • Send a letter to the dietary supplement industry, stressing its legal obligation to prevent tainted products from reaching the market, and emphasizing the possibility of criminal investigations against those who endanger public health by their involvement in tainted products.
  • Implement a new, rapid notification system for the public on the FDA web site to alert the public quickly to tainted products marketed as dietary supplements.
  • Put in place a mechanism for industry to alert the FDA about the tainted products and the firms involved.

Homeland Security Cracks Down On Counterfeit Drugs

Seal of the United States Department of Homela...Image via WikipediaI'm glad to see that the Department of Homeland Security is stepping up efforts to combat counterfeit drugs, according to this news release, PhRMA Statement on Department of Homeland Security Efforts to Crack Down on Counterfeiting Crimes.

PhRMA states:  "The most common mechanism for counterfeit drugs to enter the U.S. drug supply is through purchases made on illegal online pharmacy sites that are operated by criminals in other countries with known counterfeiting problems. Cracking down on these illegal sites can help protect patient safety and help ensure that the closed U.S. drug supply system is not compromised."

World AIDS Day - Bewildering Number of Official Websites

Today is World AIDS Day. If you Google it, you'll end up finding a dizzying array of websites proclaiming to be the official website for the Day.

Here's my contribution to the conversation. I recommend this helpful US Government site, AIDS.gov.  The opening line on the site just about sums up what they offer, "An estimated 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV, and yet one out of five don’t know it. World AIDS Day (December 1) is an opportunity for us to take action! Here are a few simple, powerful, and engaging ways:..."
