Marcain Polyamp Steripack 0.5% (Bupivacaine Hydrochloride)

Posted on:

AstraZeneca has identified an error on the carton and ampoule label of all batches of Marcain Polyamps 0.5% released to the UK market since December 2012. The text on the carton and label states that this product may be administered by intra-articular administration. This route of administration is not appropriate for the 0.5% presentation. The correct information is presented in the SMPC for Marcain Polyamps; https://www.medicines.org.uk/emc/medicine/9367

To ensure continuity of supply, distribution of affected stock will continue whilst the error is being corrected. Corrected stock is expected to be available for distribution by the end of January 2016. For further information on this matter, please contact AstraZeneca Medical Information on 01582 836836
