American Society of Hematology statement on critical methotrexate drug shortage
Date:2/15/2012

The Society is also submitting comments this week to the FDA concerning its Interim Final Rule, issued in response to the President's Executive Order of Oct. 31, 2011, to enable the FDA to improve its collection and distribution of drug shortage information.

The steps the Society has taken over the past year have had impact. Following the introduction of bills in the House and Senate last year (S. 296/H.R.2245, the Preserving Access to Life-Saving Medications Act) mandating early notification by manufacturers of drugs in short supply, ASH was the first medical society to call on Congress to conduct hearings and has made recommendations on ways to prevent and mitigate drug shortages that are being incorporated into legislative and regulatory proposals.

ASH will continue to monitor all hematologic drug shortages closely and will continue to work with policy makers to protect the health of Americans.
