November 18, 2019, Northfield, MN – Aurora Pharmaceutical, Inc. – Announced today that the FDA has approved their exclusive vented draw-off dosing cap. It is now included with every purchase of Altren® (altrenogest) Solution 0.22%
Aurora Pharmaceutical, Inc. is a veterinary pharmaceutical product development and manufacturing company, headquartered in Northfield, MN.
“While not in the progestins market as long as the pioneer, (Regumate®, Merck), we have always been acutely aware of the handling issue associated with such an effective and powerful drug,” emphasizes Bob Rehurek, Director of Sales and Marketing at Aurora. “And for that exact reason, we didn’t wait to start developing a safer product to handle and use. We started enhancing the Altren packaging – and were FDA approved for a convenient 150 mL package –two years later after receiving our original Altren 1000 mL label.”
“This adds an additional level of safety to our altrenogest product line with this vented dosing cap that eliminates the inconvenience of the bottle developing a vacuum during syringe filling,” states Rehurek. “By either not drawing against a vacuum or having to inject air first to prevent it, a source of possible leakage and personnel contamination is eliminated with this new, first of its kind draw-off dosing cap.”
Altren® is available in 1,000 mL and 150 mL plastic bottles with vented dosing caps. For more information on Altren® (altrenogest) Solution 0.22%, consult your veterinarian or contact Aurora Pharmaceutical Customer Service at 1-888-215-1256 or on-line at www.aurorapharmaceutical.com.
