Reason for the Shortage

  • Kadmon had acquired Three Rivers Pharmaceuticals in October 2010 and Amphotec was part of the product portfolio. Kadmon sold Amphotec to Alkopharma.
  • Alkopharma was the sole supplier of amphotericin b cholesteryl sulfate lipid complex. The company’s phone is no longer in service. The contracted manufacturer of Amphotec was Ben Venue Laboratories.
  • Ben Venue closed its plant in Bedford, Ohio in July 2014.
  • The shortage of amphotericin b cholesteryl sulfate lipid complex is not affecting other amphotericin formulations.
