The “Year of Compliance” has arrived and we are counting down to December 1, 2019. That is the date when the revised USP General Chapter <797> and the new General Chapter <800> will become officially effective. Although a full 9 months away, our contributors have been writing on these topics for several years, and readers of PP&P should be well aware of our commitment to covering these evolving, vital issues.
In this month’s issue, Jay Gilbreath, PharmD, MPA, discusses his Journey to Compliance with USP <797> and <800> and offers excellent insight into the process. While this is the latest article on the topic, it is by no means our first, and this lead to us thinking about what our most popular articles are. Much of the hard work our contributors put into these pieces remains relevant today, and we want to keep these articles fresh in our readers’ minds. Below are the Top 5 most viewed PP&P articles from the last 4 months.
