Cancer Medication without Active Ingredient


Cancer Medication without Active Ingredient

(ePharmaNews) - FDA lab tests have confirmed that a counterfeit version of Roche’s Altuzan 400mg/16ml (bevacizumab), an injectable cancer medication, found in the U.S. contains no active ingredient.

Even if the identified drugs were not counterfeit, Altuzan is not approved by FDA for use in the United States (it is an approved drug in Turkey).
FDA is asking the public to report suspect counterfeit products and other suspect products obtained from Richards Pharma, Richards Services, Warwick Healthcare Solutions, Ban Dune Marketing Inc (BDMI), or other sources.


Because most of their products – if not all of it - sold and distributed despite they do not have the FDA approval. Experts  has pointed that the use of this strange medicine may put patients in danger of being subjected to  a substances that is fake, corrupt, not stored or transferred in a sound and most importantly to be ineffective and dangerous.


It  should  point out that this is not the first time that this drug enter the American market illegally , a similar situation  has already occurred during the previous two months with a different brand name “Avastin”.
