PRAC starts review of leuprorelin medicines

EMA’s safety committee (PRAC) has started a review of leuprorelin medicines after reports indicated that handling errors during preparation and administration can cause some patients to receive insufficient amounts of their medicine, thus reducing the benefits of treatment.

The PRAC will now evaluate all available data and determine whether measures are needed to ensure that the medicines are prepared and administered appropriately.

While the review is ongoing, healthcare professionals should carefully follow the handling instructions for leuprorelin medicines. Patients prescribed these medicines who have any concerns should discuss them with their doctor.
