2.2 Risk of transmitting animal spongiform encephalopathy agents via medicinal products
The Committee was asked to endorse a general text concerning the risk of transmitting animal spongiform encephalopathy agents via medicinal products. It was intended that this text would be included in relevant WHO publications such as The International Pharmacopoeia.
The Committee noted the report of a WHO consultation on medicinal and other products in relation to human and animal transmissible spongiform encephalopathies and considered a recommendation made during a consultation held in September 2001.
The Committee recommended that the text be adopted, but with one minor modification (Annex 1).
