Several Lots of Human Growth Hormone Have Been Recalled

An FDA inspection of compound pharmacy Innoveix Pharmaceuticals indicated these lots may not be sterile.

Innoveix Pharmaceuticals, a compounding pharmacy in Addison, Tex., is voluntarily recalling several lots of compounded drug products. The products are being recalled due to a lack of assurance of sterility. The issues where discovered during a routine inspection by the FDA.

The affected products are injectable sermorelin/ipamorelin 3mg and injectable AOD-9604 3mg. Sermorelin and ipamorelin are human growth hormone secretagogues (GHSs), which are compounds that increase growth hormone release. AOD is a synthetic peptide thought to have potential for weight loss.
