Overview

The European Medicines Agency has completed an arbitration procedure following a disagreement among Member States of the European Union (EU) regarding the authorisation of the medicine Avalox solution for infusion. The Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has concluded that the benefits of Avalox solution for infusion outweigh its risks, and the marketing authorisation granted in Germany can be recognised in other Member States of the EU, namely Cyprus, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. However, the prescribing information for Avalox solution for infusion should be amended in all the Member States where it is authorised.
The review was carried out under an 'Article 29' referral1.


1 Article 29 of Directive 2001/83/EC as amended, referral on the grounds of potential serious risk to public health
