To the attention of all wholesale distributors of medicinal products
Please be advised that one distributor in Germany has found 47 vials of MabThera 500 mg, concentrate for solution for infusion, batch number N7030B01 (expiry date 02/2017) suspected of falsification.
The batch number printed on 43 vials was N7030 and N7023 on 4 other vials; all secondary packagings were imprinted with batch number N7030B01.
The product was intended for the Romanian market. On grounds of suspicion of falsification, the German distributor has returned the respective vials to the Czech supplier, who has blocked these products from sale.
Please notify the NAMMD promptly if you have received an irregular offer for purchase of MabThera (for instance, at an unusually low price or with quality certificates different in aspect from those normally issued by ROCHE).
As regards batch no. N7030B01, each packaging thereof must be checked. Please inform the NAMMD forthwith in case of tampering signs.
