We’ve often complained that the names of specialty pharmacies selected as limited distribution partners for new therapies are not released at the time of FDA approval (why that is the case is beyond my understanding). However, we are seeing more manufacturers allowing their SP partners to announce that they are the pharmacy of record for their new LD therapy.
As requested, we are sending an update with information from some recent press releases.
We will periodically send similar updates as information becomes available.
