Natco Pharma Ltd has recalled its breast cancer drug Albupax following an order from the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI), which said that the drug might cause damage to liver.
The Hyderabad-based company has stopped the production, distribution and marketing of the drug and is in the process of recalling stocks, a company spokesperson told Business Line.
"The product has passed all quality tests. However, on DCGI's instructions, we have stopped marketing the product in the interim.
"We are taking immediate steps to investigate the issue," he said.
The testing procedures for the drug should also be looked into as Albupax was nanotechnology-based products.
"The testing procedures for this drug are quite complex," he added.
Natco is currently engaged in a legal dispute on patent of Albupax with its original innovator, American Biosciences and is awaiting judgment.
