Chennai High Court allows sale of the two banned medicines


The Indian pharma companies who have got their medicines recently banned by DTAB and eventually by the Ministry of Health may get some oxygen from the news that on Tuesday (Mar 15, 2011) the Chennai High Court allowed sale of two banned drugs for another four weeks acting on a plea of small pharmaceutical companies so that that the manufacturers can now exhaust those products with their stockists and chemists. 

-- Swapan Das

The court order has temporarily stayed the ban on sale of nimesulide for use by children below 12 years and nasal congestion drug phenylpropanolamine (PPA) that have combined sales of about Rs 30-40 crore a year, said T S Jaishankar, chairman at industry body representing small drug-makers Confederation of Indian Pharmaceutical Industry. 

However, companies cannot dispatch new batches or resume production. The association will now move the court to remove the ban on the drugs altogether. 

On February 10, the government had prohibited sale and manufacture of gastrointestinal drug cisapride and medicines made from human placental extract, besides the two medicines immediately due to adverse side effects.
