More counterfeit Avastin found in U.S.

Filed April 5th, 2012 Joshua Sophy

More vials containing a counterfeit version of the cancer injection drug Avastin have been discovered in the U.S.

According to a Reuters report, the discovery and supply chain of the counterfeit Avastin is similar to bogus vials of the life-saving drug found in the U.S. in February. It’s unknown just how many counterfeit vials of Avastin are currently available around the world but the practice is likely to continue as regulations concerning inspection of drug supplies from international markets remain lax.

The latest vials of counterfeit Avastin were purchased by an American company via a British company that allegedly bought the compromised product from a Turkish seller. A counterfeit supply found in the U.S. in February took a similar route to get to the U.S.

An investigation into the counterfeit vials found earlier this year revealed the bogus vials contain no pharmaceutical agents and are largely ineffective and potentially dangerous. Avastin injections are prescribed to prevent the further growth of tumors in the fight against certain types of cancer.

According to the report, 39 “packs” of Avastin vials were sold from a British company to the U.S. Of the remainder of the original purchase of 120 packs, they have likely been distributed across the U.K.
