Senator Bond wants the General Accounting Office to look into pharmacy compounding. Compounded drugs are customized medications that pharmacists mix from scratch, often without following safety procedures used by big drugmakers. Bond’s request comes after the Robert Courtney cancer drug dilution case that rocked the Kansas City area. Courtney pleaded guilty to diluting cancer drugs for nearly 10 years to increase his profit margin. Authorities believe more than four thousand patients were affected. He’s now serving a 30-year sentence. Bond has also received the green light from the Senate to form an advisory committee to look into compounded drugs.
