Bedford Laboratories™, a division of Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc., a provider of select specialty injectables, is pleased to announce the addition of Indomethacin for Injection to its existing product line. This product is AP rated and is equivalent to Indocin® by Lundbeck, Inc. Indomethacin for Injection is indicated to close a hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus in premature infants weighing between 500 and 1750 g when after 48 hours usual medical management (e.g., fluid restriction, diuretics, digitalis, respiratory support, etc.) is ineffective. Clear-cut clinical evidence of a hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus should be present, such as respiratory distress, a continuous murmur, a hyperactive precordium, cardiomegaly and pulmonary plethora on chest x-ray.
Bedford Laboratories will supply Indomethacin for Injection USP as single dose vials containing indomethacin sodium, equivalent to 1 mg indomethacin. "We are very excited and pleased to announce the launch of this critical product. The release of this product to the market place is very timely, given that the innovator product is currently on long-term backorder (source: www.fda.gov). This is a great milestone for Bedford Laboratories and we are very proud to add this product to our growing portfolio," said David Gaugh, Vice President and General Manager, Bedford Laboratories.
