Independent Laboratory Testing Demonstrates Important Quality Differences Between FDA-Approved Makena® and Compounded 17P Formulations
Date:11/8/2011

f API used in compounded 17P formulations provided by 10 different suppliers of API. Seven of the suppliers were determined to be original manufacturers of API that are located in China and that, to the Company's knowledge, do not appear to have been registered with or inspected by the FDA. The other three were identified as U.S.-based resellers of API, whose product is also believed to originate from China.
  • 30 vials of compounded 17P formulations, prepared by 30 different compounding pharmacies across 15 states.

  • The independent laboratories measured the quality of each API sample and compounded 17P vial against certain quality standards required by FDA for Makena®. The samples also were evaluated by these labs against certain U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) standards for hydroxyprogesterone caproate and hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection, because some compounding pharmacies claim that their compounded formulations meet USP criteria. The laboratories analyzed the API and compounded 17P drug formulations to assess potency, chemical impurities and drug identity.

    Key Laboratory Testing Findings

    Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API)

    • One API sample sent from a Chinese manufacturing facility was not the correct active pharmaceutical ingredient. Although the package was sent to the United States labeled in Chinese as hydroxyprogesterone caproate (HPC), the active ingredient failed the drug identity test for HPC. Further laboratory analysis conclusively proved that the substance was glucose instead of HPC.
    • 80 percent (8 of 10) of the API samples failed to meet at least one FDA standard for unknown impurities.
    • 50 percent (5 of 10) of the API samples failed to meet the USP standard for potency.
    • The paperwork (certificates of analysis) that arrived with API shipped from China was often missing or incomplete. Such gaps in paperwork can make it difficult to
