PCCA Company Profile

05:55 EST 18th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

More than two decades ago, a physician encountered a patient who required an anti-nausea medication that was no longer commercially available. The physician challenged a Houston-area pharmacist to compound the medication, so the pharmacist consulted with his peers and procured the chemicals necessary to prepare it.The prescription was a success, and the pharmacist realized that others in his field faced similar demands to meet the needs of patients requiring compounded medications. This network of pharmacists, united by a commitment to meet patient needs, was the foundation of PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America), which was soon incorporated in 1981.
