FDA Finalizes Guidance on Assessing Abuse Potential of Drugs 

Posted 18 January 2017 By Zachary Brennan

A guidance finalized on Wednesday, almost six years after it was first drafted, looks to help sponsors of investigational new drugs in evaluating whether their new drug product has abuse potential.

More specifically, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says the 37-page guidance offers recommendations for assessing the abuse potential of central nervous system (CNS)-active new drugs and whether they produce euphoria (or other changes in mood), hallucinations, and effects consistent with CNS depressants or stimulants.- See more at:

What is the Drug Price Reference Index (DPRI)? The DPRI lists the ceiling prices of essential medicines for government bidding and procurement set by the DOH for all National and Local Government Health Facilities and Government Agencies. Winning bid prices of essential medicines within the DPRI ceiling reflect efficient and effective procurement in the government. Their transparencies and enforcement ensure consumer access to medicines and protection from excessive price mark-ups on medicines. The DPRI only reflects the acquisition costs including landed cost, packaging, drug content, quality assurance, manufacturing overheads and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) fees. The DPRI excludes other costs such as pharmacy services, preparation and storage fees, and other reasonable pharmacy mark-ups, which are now being evaluated by the DOH. The DPRI aims to improve the efficiency and good governance in the pricing and procurement of medicines in the public sector through establishing a transparent and publicly available reference price for affordable and quality medicines. It also aims to guide the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC) in setting reimbursement caps for medicines both for inpatient and outpatient services. Who should use the DPRI? All government entities should be guided by the DPRI when procuring medicines. It shall be applied to all forms of procurement such as public bidding, direct contracting, shopping, negotiated procurement, emergency procurement and consignment to ensure that the government achieves the best value for money in sourcing essential medicines.

Disclaimer: All prices reflected are based on the lowest bidding procurement price conducted last 2015 of all DOH Hospitals. All manufacturers/suppliers included in this website are FDA registered and has a certificate of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) issued by the FDA.
