Dr. Amin Hussein Al Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary for Public Health Policy and Licenses, Chairman of the Higher Pharmacovigilance Committee in the UAE.

Content of the circulars

The circular advised the withdrawal of a lot of the medical device NoNexcare Family Set with batch number 201809LT manufactured by 3M Gulf Ltd, following the notice given by the manufacturer. The company stated that it has withdrawn the said product which is used in the covering and protection of small injuries and wounds expiring on September 2018 due to typographical errors.

The Ministry also issued another circular to withdraw one Lot of Miacin 500mg/2ml IV/IM Ampoules, the withdrawn batch number is D041, and the product is produced by Hikma Pharmaceuticals, after an analysis performed by the Quality Control and Research department at MOHAP found that the product, which is used in the treatment of bacterial infections and expiring on June 2018, contains visible particles in the injection.

Dr. Al Amiri noted that the products were registered at MOHAP's Drug Department, adding that authorized agents of the medical device and the pharmaceutical product were informed to recall them from the UAE markets. He further advised that all healthcare practitioners and patients should not use the above-mentioned medical products.
