US Pharmacopeia announces revised heparin monographs and reference standards
Date:6/23/2008

f heparin.

"The expedited revision of USP's heparin standards gives manufacturers, health care practitioners and patients increased confidence that this widely used drug is free of this adulterant," said Roger L. Williams, M.D., USP executive vice president and CEO. "The monograph revisions were completed quickly to alleviate a major public health concern; they were accomplished through USP's established, transparent, and scientific process. In updating the standards, USP received guidance not only from the FDA but also from the volunteer experts on USP's Heparin Advisory Panel and USP's Blood and Blood Products Expert Committee, which concluded the monograph standards, and USP's Reference Standards Committee, which endorsed the physical standards. USP thanks these colleagues and the many other national and international experts who assisted the USP Council of Experts' Expert Committees and Advisory Panel and worked with us to meet this extremely important challenge."

USP publishes official quality standards for medicines in the United States PharmacopeiaNational Formulary (USPNF) and has worked with FDA for more than 100 years in a unique public-private partnership that helps to assure the quality of medicines in the United States. The availability of a good public monograph in the USPNF along with allied reference materials is one of a series of safety nets that help assure that U.S. patients and practitioners have access to good quality medicines.

"While USP monographs are generally designed to test for known impurities that may result from the manufacturing process or degradation, and not for unknown contaminants that may be added either accidentally or deliberately, we were pleased to modify our standards to help alleviate patient danger associated with the heparin product and will continue to explore methods for detecting potential contaminants," Dr. Williams noted.
