National Biologic Coordinators Day – November 1, 2022

National Biologic Coordinators Day is celebrated on November 1, and we are all set to celebrate this day with pomp and energy. Getting on and following through with prescribed biological treatment is tricky, but biological coordinators make it very painless for patients! Their constant support and tireless work make access to the prescribed biological treatments very easy, and patients get the much-needed treatment they deserve. A biologic coordinator can be any member of a medical practice’s office staff who helps in navigating the process of obtaining prescribed biologic medications.

History of National Biologic Coordinators Day

The 19th century saw exciting development in the field of biological research areas around the world. In Germany, Robert Koch investigated and isolated the bacteria responsible for anthrax, rabies, tuberculosis, and cholera. Louis Pasteur studied microorganisms causing fermentation and spoilage, and he developed the first laboratory vaccine to protect fowl from chicken cholera. Bacteriologists in America, Theobald Smith, and Edmund Salmon introduced the concept of heat-killed vaccines.

With this research came the talk of the need for regulation, standardization, and quality control of new biological products, but they were implemented only after a five-year-old girl died in the hospital from tetanus which she contracted after the administration of diphtheria antitoxin prophylactically which was taken from a horse who had tetanus. Soon nine more children in New Jersey died from the contaminated smallpox vaccine, which made the adoption of rigorous standards for the emerging biological products imperative.

On July 1, 1902, Theodore Roosevelt signed the Biologics Control Act, which mandated the annual licensing of establishments that manufactured or sold vaccines, serums, antitoxins, and similar products. The modern federal oversight of biological products was carried out by the Hygienic Laboratory of the Public Health and Marine Hospital Service. With the creation of the National Institutes of Health from the Hygenic Laboratory, the regulatory authority remained with NIH till 1972, and then it was transferred to F.D.A.
