Takeda has been notified by FDA that the recall of Natpara has been classified as a Class 1 recall. This means that patients will be asked to return all unused Natpara once they have discontinued use in line with instructions from their prescribing health care provider. This does not apply to patients who received single use cartridges under the Special Use program! Please click on the Title to be redirected to Takeda's Newsroom for.
The Hypoparathyroidism Association is very pleased to inform you that Takeda and FDA have developed a Special Use Program for patients in life-threatening situations to be granted access to Natpara while the product recall is in effect. This program can be requested by a physician and will be evaluated by an adjudication committee who will determine if the patient qualifies. Takeda will be issuing a statement momentarily with further details, which the Association will share. This is an unprecedented type of program and really proves how committed Takeda and FDA are to the hypopara community and how they are exercising ingenuity and flexibility to overcome these difficult challenges!
The Endocrine Society and the American Society for Bone Mineral Research (ASBMR) have released a statement on the Natpara recall, which includes guidance for physicians on discontinuation of Natpara.
