State medical board regulation of compounding in physician offices.

Reynolds KA, Hellquist K, Ibrahim SA, et al. Arch Dermatol Res. 2021;Epub May 27.

Adverse events associated with pharmacy compounding (e.g., parenteral nutrition, sterile compounding) are well-documented. This survey of state medical and osteopathic boards gathered information about compounding-associated adverse events in physician offices and use of compounding standards. Findings indicate that the incidence of in-office compounding-related adverse events is low and that the majority of respondents had not incorporated compounding standards into their regulations.
