Parenteral Drug Association Celebrates 70 Years of Connecting People, Science and Regulation

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) marks its 70th Anniversary in November. PDA's original Certificate of Incorporation was signed in November 1946 by its six original directors: Harold London, Rudolph Price, A. Lincoln Konwiser, Max Gold, Arthur Herrick, and Abraham Wagner.

"PDA and its members have played an influential role in many of the most important advances in the manufacturing and control of parenteral products over the last 70 years," said PDA President Richard Johnson. "PDA led the way in the 1970's to introduce standardized methods for steam sterilization techniques with the publication of Technical Report No. 1 in 1979. With 80 additional technical reports published since and a full-scale cleanroom used for hands-on training, PDA remains a leader in sterilization/aseptic processing science and many other areas of pharmaceutical manufacturing and control."
