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

track back specific product to specific manufacturing facilities, which is critically important should a problem with the medication arise.

Compounded 17P Formulations

  • 27 percent (8 of 30) of the compounded 17P vials tested failed to meet the USP standard for potency. The potency values of the compounded 17P vials ranged from just over half to a level more than 2.5 times the labeled potency. If these vials were administered to patients, some patients would not have received the dose of 17P that was reviewed and subsequently approved by FDA for safety and efficacy in this patient population. This variability in potency was comparable to those found in FDA's limited survey of compounded drug products conducted in 2006, which is available at:  http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/PharmacyCompounding/ucm204237.htm
  • 53 percent (16 of 30) of the vials of compounded 17P had levels of unknown impurities that exceeded at least one standard required by the FDA for Makena®. The potential toxic effects of these unidentified compounds in the intended patient population are unknown.  
  • Taken together, two-thirds (20 of 30) of the compounded 17P vials failed to meet at least one USP requirement (a standard used by some compounding pharmacies) or at least one FDA quality standard required of Makena® for potency and/or purity levels. Information was not obtained regarding the sterility of, or potential presence of endotoxins in, the compounded 17P vials.  
  • FDA-approved Makena® must meet FDA's quality standards before release for patient use.
