Uvestérol to be available again in France

France’s authority ANSM (Agence nationale du médicament) announced that the products Uvestérol ADEC and Uvesterol D will be available again, but only at precise conditions and in hospital pharmacies. The announcement comes after ANSM suspended the commercialization of the product on January 6th, as a precautionary measure. It will be now possible to prescribe the products in case of inability to absorb vitamins A, D, E and C—which is one of the symptoms of cystic fibrosis—and in order to treat the conditions resulting in insufficient secretion of biliary liquids. Uvestérol is marketed by Montrouge, France-based Laboratoire Crinex. (Source Les Echos)
