ADA Advocates for Preserving Access to Life-Saving Medication

ADA is working closely with the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition to advocate for the availability of adequate and safe total parenteral nutrition ingredients, which are often in short supply.

These shortages may lead to life-threatening situations for some at-risk patients. The shortages are attributed to many complex factors, including consolidation and mergers of drug companies, leaving fewer options for a particular drug, mineral or solution when a company exits the market, and quality issues that surface and become problematic for certain drugs.

In addition, some drug companies no longer want to compete in the less-profitable generic drug market, which leaves less expensive solutions, minerals and drugs more vulnerable to shortages. We know this has put an enormous amount of work on pharmacists, our colleagues who are responsible for the inventory management of these items.

Staff recently met with U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D.-Minn.) and U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D.-Colo.), the chief sponsors of the bill, to identify strategy.
