Due to the unavailability of the raw material global bovine insulin API, Wockhardt has been forced to discontinue the Hypurin® Bovine Insulin range.

The company says that residual bovine insulin stocks will be carefully managed to ensure product remains available for patients for as long as possible. However, all patients using Hypurin® Bovine Insulin will need to have their prescription changed.

The company emphasises that the discontinuation of Hypurin® BOVINE Insulin does not affect the supply of Hypurin® PORCINE Insulin.

You can find monthly updates on depletion dates on the company website here.
