New Heparin Updates
Heparin Labeling Clarification (11–Nov–2017): The labeling sections of the currently official Heparin Sodium Injection and Heparin Lock Flush Solution monographs in USP–NF are now posted in PF 44(1), with comments due March 31, 2018. This proposed revision will maintain consistency with the text in USP General Chapter <7> Labeling also proposed for revision in PF 44(1).
Note that heparin-related labeling, e.g. on the containers, need not use the full phrase “USP Heparin Units” that appears in many heparin monograph labeling sections. The term “USP units” can be used on heparin labeling consistent with USP compendial requirements, provided it is clear from the context that the volume is stated in terms of USP Heparin Units. In such circumstances it should be clear that “USP Units” and “USP Heparin Units” share the same meaning.
