(PresseBox) ( Schaffhausen, )
Ewopharma and Vianex S.A. are pleased to announce their new partnership for distribution of Amikacin in Switzerland. Ewopharma will be the new market authorisation holder for the drug and assuming all responsibilities of the former distributor Bristol Myers Squibb.

Amikacin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic used to treat a number of severe bacterial infections. The drug inhibits protein synthesis of sensitive bacteria and is indicated for short-term treatment of severe infections caused by amikacin-sensitive Gram-negative pathogens.

Amikacin is listed as an essential medicine on the WHO model list of essential medicines, highlighting the importance of this drug in the fight against bacterial infections. In line with the WHO’s assessment, the Federal Office of Economic Land Supply (BWL) also requires a compulsory stock for Amikacin. https://www.bwl.admin.ch/bwl/de/home/themen/heilmittel/meldestelle.html
