The Food and Drug Administration wants the pharmaceutical industry to get away from making drugs using the traditional batch method, saying the continuous process allows manufacturers to more easily scale operations to meet demand and should help reduce drug shortages. David H. Thompson, a Purdue University chemistry professor, has written a research paper about how to make a generic form of lomustine. The continuous manufacturing process can be applied to many other products.
