To help the pharmaceutical industry combat drug counterfeiting, IBM is
launching an electronic pedigree system Thursday that tracks medications
through the supply chain until they reach consumers.
A new law requiring that the pedigree be attached to aany mediciation
distributed in the state goes into effect in 2009 in California.
There is a requirement for drug pedigress in an FDA regulation. However,
implementation of that requirement has been stayed by a court
injunction. See http://www.rfidupdate.com/articles/index.php?id=1260
SupplyScape, Sun, and Acsis are also solution vendors.
