Research Initiatives


The Research and Education Committee was formed in June 2004 to fulfill the IACP Foundation’s mission to advance the art and science of pharmacy compounding by funding research and public education initiatives within the profession. An 18-member volunteer committee worked diligently the first year to establish the priorities for giving and the application process.

Since 2005, the IACP Foundation has awarded more than $275,000 for studies researching compounded preparation potency and stability and outcomes of treatment with compounded medications.

Potency Evaluation of Albuterol, Ipratropium Bromide and Budesonide Inhalation over 6 months

Principal Investigator: Richard B. Moon, PharmD, BS, RPh, FIACP

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to test potency of albuterol, budesonide and ipratropium bromide at zero, 15, 30, 60, 90 and 180 days and present the finding in a poster session at IACP’s Annual Meeting and Compounders on Capitol Hill.

Potency Testing—Variability between Analytical Testing Laboratories

Principal Investigators: Matthew J. Buderer, RPh, FIACP, and Nancy Buderer, MS, CIP, Biostatistician 

Abstract: The goal of this study is to estimate the variability between analytical testing laboratories when analyzing the potency of a non-sterile compounded gel preparation. We are interested in the reliability of potency testing across laboratories, that is, the variability (differences) between laboratories. When given the same sample of an unknown potency to analyze, do the labs come up with the same result?
*This study was published in the Jan./Feb. 2009 issue of the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding.
