Vitamins are essential micronutrients in the diet and play an important role in patient care and the treatment of several medical conditions. Pharmaceutical vitamin product shortages create a challenge for today’s healthcare practitioner and consequences of these shortages can be devastating for patients requiring parenteral nutrition. Vitamins have been approved, alone or in combination with other actives, for medical treatment indications and new research suggests promising opportunities in this area. Opportunities exist for pharmaceutical manufacturers to develop new generic and novel pharmaceutical products containing vitamins to improve patient health.

Key Takeaways:
• Medical treatments can lead to an increased risk of vitamin deficiencies.
• There is an immediate market need for injectable vitamins in parenteral nutrition applications.
• Vitamins have already been approved for several therapeutic indications in North America.
• The inherent biocompatibility and known safety profile of vitamins makes them excellent drug candidates.
