Sen­ate Fi­nance Com­mit­tee Chair Ron Wyden (D-OR) said Wednes­day his com­mit­tee plans to hold a hear­ing to look more close­ly at drug short­ages, which have been par­tic­u­lar­ly dif­fi­cult for some com­mon can­cer drugs, mon­o­clon­al an­ti­bod­ies tar­get­ed at RSV, ster­ile in­jecta­bles, and new obe­si­ty drugs.
