Fresenius Kabi Launches Posaconazole Injection for Fungal Infection Prevention/Treatment

30 January 2024 | Tuesday | News

Produced in the U.S., the generic anti-fungal drug is fully substitutable for Noxafil®

Fresenius Kabi announced it has introduced Posaconazole Injection, a generic substitute for Noxafil®, for use in treating or preventing serious fungal infections in adults and children who have an increased chance of getting these infections due to a weakened immune system. Now available in the U.S., Posaconazole Injection is the newest addition to Fresenius Kabi’s portfolio of more than 30 anti-infective molecules.

Available in a 300 mg per 16.7 mL vial, Posaconazole Injection is used to treat invasive aspergillosis, a serious fungal infection, in adults and teenagers 13 years of age and older. It is also used to prevent invasive aspergillus and candida infections in patients who are severely immunocompromised, including adults and pediatric patients age 2 or older.

“The introduction of Posaconazole Injection reflects Fresenius Kabi’s ongoing commitment to expanding our portfolio of affordable generic options for the treatment and/or prevention of life-threatening infections,” said John Ducker, president and CEO of Fresenius Kabi USA.

Posaconazole Injection is produced at the company’s pharmaceutical production site in Grand Island, New York. Fresenius Kabi has invested nearly $1 billion to expand and update its U.S. pharmaceutical production and distribution network. More than 70 percent of the product units shipped in the U.S. by Fresenius Kabi are drugs listed on the FDA’s Essential Medicines List.

“We are doubling our U.S. manufacturing capacity to enhance the resilience of our supply chain, which helps assure fast, reliable service for our customers and the patients they serve,” said Lindsey Thomas, senior vice president of marketing of Fresenius Kabi USA. “Our investments will help patients gain access to the treatments they need – when and where they need them most.”
