Compounding Peptides and HCG

Fairly regularly, we get asked why HCG and peptides can’t be compounded and why APC can’t do something about it.

This slide deck from attorney Karla Palmer of Hyman, Phelps & McNamara outlines restrictions on compounding biologics, including peptides and HCG. Bottom line: Don’t do it!

The La Vita Compounding Pharmacy Matter

At issue: California compounders’ ability to compound glutathione and methylcobalamin. At the center: La Vita Pharmacy in California, which is facing enforcement action from the California Board of Pharmacy.

APC is filing an amicus brief on behalf of La Vita, thanks to funding from our Legal Action Fund. Read our news story about that.
