HHS Chief Sebelius Backs Early Reporting Requirement for Shortages

The health chief told the Senate Finance Committee the FDA would strongly benefit from pending bills, S. 296 and H.R. 2245, that would mandate six months notification by drugmakers discontinuing, interrupting or adjusting manufacture of a drug known to be in short supply.
