FDA Priorities For 2011-2015

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today released the final version of a strategic priorities document outlining the goals that will guide the agency and its 12,000 employees through 2015, FDA’s “Strategic Priorities 2011 – 2015: Responding to the Public Health Challenges of the 21st Century” (PDF).

It conveys the FDA's vision for the future, by mentioning:
  • a modernized field of regulatory science that draws on innovations in science and technology to help ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical products throughout their life cycles
  • an integrated global food safety system focused on prevention and improved nutrition
  • expanded efforts to meet the needs of special populations.
The document is organized into four major sections:
1.0 Introduction 
2.0 Cross-Cutting Strategic Priorities
3.0 Strategic Goals and Long-Term Objectives
4.0 Implementation

Big Pharma Drug Theft Problem

An illustration of a company's supply chainImage via Wikipedia
Uh-oh.

Katherine Eban reports in Fortune Magazine, Drug theft goes big - Organized gangs are stealing prescription medicine in increasingly audacious heists - That's a problem for Big Pharma and for patients, who can unknowingly buy stolen -- and sometimes dangerous -- medications.

In a nutshell, drug warehouses and supply chains appear to be vulnerable. In some cases, the vulnerabilities allow for stolen, unapproved, illegally imported, expired, and counterfeit drugs to get into the marketplace.
