HPS Pharmacies wish to provide an update on the availability of urokinase. While this drug is not marketed in Australia, it may be accessed through the special access scheme (SAS). However, there is currently a global shortage of urokinase as follows:

  • Urokinase 60,000 IU – SAS stock available
  • Urokinase 100,000 IU – unavailable
  • Urokinase 120,000 IU – SAS stock available
  • Urokinase 500,000 IU – unavailable
