This was a holiday week in the US, and may explain the shortage of published items, at least from the FDA.  Guidance seems to be skipping this week.  There was, however, the usual group of non-guidance documents. Enforcement saw a single untitled letter to a stem cell facility (and 50-plus affiliates) and a warning letter to a compounding pharmacy. [...]
