USP – Combating Substandard & Counterfeit Medicines

USP: Over the past few decades, the supply chain for pharmaceuticals and their ingredients has expanded around the world, and so has the presence of substandard and counterfeit products. Notable adverse events related to poor quality medicines (e.g., heparin and glycerin contamination) have brought increased attention from policymakers, regulators, manufacturers, and consumers to the threat of using poor quality medicines.
