The virtual summit aimed to achieve the following:

  • Discuss US pharmaceutical supply chain resilience, including diversity of domestic and international sources, to ensure a consistently safe, effective, and accessible supply of quality medicines, devices, or other related supplies in light of the current state of global pharmaceutical manufacturing.
  • Identify opportunities to strengthen the US and global regulatory system to ensure a safe, effective, and accessible supply of quality medicines to the American public.
  • Develop recommendations for the private and public sectors to develop a national security and public health strategy that ensures a consistently safe, effective, and uninterrupted supply of quality medicines to the American public.
  • Develop recommendations that help support clinical decision-making by healthcare providers and communications with patients and others involved in healthcare delivery.

David Light, Valisure's CEO, presented on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, to discuss drug product contamination, highlighting valsartan contamination with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) dimethylformamide (DMF), both being probable human carcinogens. Mr. Light noted that these contaminants had been found in generic drugs and the branded product made by Novartis.

The summit identified critical findings for the private and public sectors to consider in developing a national security and public health strategy that ensures a consistently safe, effective, and uninterrupted supply of quality medicines to the American public. This section presents a summary of findings and the process for potential next steps.
