Genzyme Recalls Nine Lots of Kidney Transplant Drug on Stability Concerns

Aug. 31, 2012
Genzyme is voluntarily recalling nine lots of its kidney transplant drug Thymoglobulin after one product lot failed a periodic stability test, the Sanofi subsidiary says.
The additional lots of the antibody were pulled because they were made with raw materials of comparable quality to the lot that was flagged, Genzyme explained. Those materials, determined to be the root cause of the stability failure, could potentially weaken the drug before it expires, the drugmaker noted.
