The Federal Commission for the Protection against Health Risks (Cofepris) alerted to a drug identified as “Napabeltan“With labeling in the Korean language, which according to him is a” health risk because of dubious origin “, this after the controversy unleashed on social networks.
By a declaration, the Commission indicated that this product of medically questionable origin has not been approved for marketing or supply in the health sector for medical purposes in Mexico.
The controversy over the alleged use of the drug “Napabeltan” in the health sector, was sparked after a nurse identified as Lulú Rodríguez denounced via Twitter that the Institute of Health for Welfare (Insabi) had delivered the said drugs with questionable labeling to treat patients infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
“These are the drugs we are receiving from @INSABI_mx. It’s in Korean. I want you to read the above carefully. Her handwriting is in Korean and no, there is no ‘piece of paper’ inside the box with other languages, ”said the woman identified as a nurse.
He added that the standard says drugs must be received with labeling in Spanish, so that medical staff have clarity and safety in what treats patients.
A day after the publication of the nurse, on March 19, Cofepris assured that Lulú Rodríguez’s complaint contained false information and stressed that the agency had not “granted health authorization to import, market or supply the health sector for its medical use ”.
However, this Saturday, Cofepris issued a health alert, in which it confirmed that the Napabeltan, which was recently posted on social media, does not have a health clearance.
“The Federal Commission for the Protection against Health Risks has received information via social networks about the alleged use of the drug under the trade name ‘Napabeltan’, which contains nafamostat as an active substance. This drug is not authorized for importation and marketing in Mexico ”, indicated Cofepris in the press release published on its social networks.
