Expedited Release Occurs Earlier Than Anticipated
TORONTO, Dec. 5, 2019 /CNW/ - Canada's leading generic drug manufacturer, Apotex, announced today that its first shipment of the drug tamoxifen has been released to the Canadian market. Additional releases are scheduled for December 2019 and January 2020.
Collaborating with Health Canada, Apotex expedited the return to market almost one month earlier than their latest projection.
"Our goal from the outset was to make the Canadian supply available as soon as possible to reduce the impact on patients," said Jeff Watson, President & CEO, Apotex Inc. "We recognize the importance of this medication and that it can be unsettling for patients if it is in short supply. To facilitate a quicker re-entry to the market, we re-prioritized production of our portfolio, and were able to produce this faster than we normally would," said Watson.
