Ucyclyd Pharma has detected particulate matter in vials of Ammonul (sodium phenylacetate/sodium benzoate injection). Due to safety concerns, Ucyclyd will begin packaging all shipments of Ammonul with Millex Durapore GV 33mm sterile syringe filters. The filter must be used to admix Ammonul at all times since the particulate matter may not be seen on visual inspection.
Ammonul is indicated as adjunctive therapy of acute hyperammonemia with encephalopathy in urea cycle disorders.
