Jext Availability July 2014

Jext Supply Update

Earlier this year a number of batches of Jext 150mcg and 300mcg were recalled from the Irish market by the manufacturer ALK due to a potential quality defect

1. ALK are pleased to confirm that the quality defect has been successfully addressed and the company have delivered sufficient supplies of both presentations to allow for this stock to be withdrawn from the market place and to meet on-going demand. However the stock used to resupply the market was short dated and this has resulted in inconvenience and in some cases financial impact for patients and their carers.

In order to address this any patients/carers with a Jext® with an expiry of either October or December 2014 should contact ALK’s customer service department by email at

info@uk.alk-abello.com or by calling +44 (0)118 903 7940.

ALK would like to thank patients and carers for their patience in relation to the product recall and the current issue of short dated stock. ALK are in the process of getting Jext® delivered to Ireland with progressively longer shelf life and are extending this with each batch they produce.
