Poisons board assures over Duo-Cotecxin anti-malarial drug

The Pharmacy and Poisons Board has allayed fears over the anti- malarial drug Duo-cotecxin saying the drug currently being investigated for failing an assay test was from a specific batch and not the entire product.

The board says the drug of batch number 160621 which is set to expire in May this year has been quarantined and not been  recalled nor withdrawn as earlier portrayed.

Meanwhile the board has stepped up its surveillance to ensure that  no vendor sells the drugs in question to unsuspecting consumers.
