Revised Monographs

Based on a request from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in February 2009, USP has revised and strengthened its monographs for five pharmaceutical excipients used in drug formulations-Propylene Glycol, Sorbitol Solution, Sorbitol Sorbitan Solution, Noncrystallizing Sorbitol Solution, and Maltitol Solution.

These efforts are to assist in preventing future diethylene glycol (DEG) and ethylene glycol (EG) adulteration.
