Drug Availability

HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Accord is expecting a supply interruption for pemetrexed as follows:

Pemetrexed Accord
Pemetrexed (as disodium) 500mg
ARTG 222415

This anticipated supply interruption is due to a delay in final approval from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for a manufacturing variation. Supplies are expected to return to normal in mid-late June 2019. While warehouse supplies of Pemetrexed Accord 500mg vials are likely to be exhausted in the next two weeks, HPS Pharmacies can organise alternative supplies of pemetrexed 500mg through Baxter for the benefit of our clients. This supply interruption does not affect Pemetrexed Accord 1g or Pemetrexed Accord 100mg.

Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units until supplies return to normal. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.

Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
