Communication / Conference: Fake Harvoni uncovered in legal medicine supply chain in Germany


BfArM


The German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) recently discovered counterfeit Harvoni, after a patient identified tablets as fake thanks to their color: genuine Harvoni tablets are orange while the tablets received by the patient were white. He then raised the alarm, enabling BfArM to intervene. The Institute said all other aspects of the medicine and its packaging, including the batch number and tablet form, match the features of genuine packs of Harvoni. Officials are now investigating on the tablets entry in the legitimate supply chain, and screening is underway to ascertain which ingredients they contain.
