Depo-Provera vials to end shortages

Pharmacia says that it is experiencing supply problems with Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone acetate) pre-filled syringes. Until the situation is rectified, the company is introducing Depo-Provera vials, which are expected to be available from mid-December (PJ, 23 November, p739).

The stock shortage follows a review of Pharmacia's manufacturing facilities during which production ceased at the company's site at Puurs, Belgium, where Depo-Provera pre-filled syringes were manufactured. A decision was made to revalidate the manufacturing process for suspensions in syringes at the site and resumption of routine production was delayed. A date for reintroducing the pre-filled syringes has not been set by Pharmacia.
