Regulatory and Quality Specialists **An FDAnews Webinar** Nov. 29, 20181:30 p.m.3:00 p.m. ET http://www.fdanews.com/chinesemedicine    

China wants to be the world's pharmacy.

But troubles abound.

More than half of all valsartan products on the U.S. market have been recalled due to a probable cancer-causing chemical in the API. The recall shines a spotlight on growing U.S. and global dependence on China for APIs and chemical intermediates.

Talk of proposed tariffs on Chinese pharmaceuticals has raised concerns about the impact on the supply and price of drugs. Tariffs could be disruptive to the market since China is the sole global supplier of many APIs and chemical intermediates. Supply chain modification is burdensome and can affect quality and access to an unfettered supply.

FDAnews has called on Rosmary Gibson, Senior Advisor at the Hastings Center and author of China Rx: Exposing the Risks of America's Dependence on China for Medicine, to discuss the real-world impact of Chinese medicine on public health and the scrutiny it's undergoing. Attendees will learn the following:

  • Three lessons from the valsartan case
  • Three questions to ask API suppliers to ensure GMP
  • How to determine whether or not Chinese medicine is safe
  • How to develop a model and a strategy for determining whether medicines produced by China are safe and effective
  • The rationale for proposed tariffs on Chinese medical products
  • Details of the industry response to tariffs on Chinese-made APIs and chemical intermediates
  • The importance of China's goal to become the world's pharmacy and the impact on the global supply chain and regulatory oversight

Register today to understand the risks and challenges posed by U.S. dependence on Chinese pharmaceuticals.
