CordenPharma Latina has resolved the problems that earned its API and injectable drug facility in Sermoneta, Italy a warning letter from the US FDA last year.

The US regulator gave the plant a clean bill of health in a closeout letter this month, explaining that: “Based on our evaluation, it appears that you have addressed the violations and or deviations.”

The Sermoneta facility – which was previously owned by Bristol Myers - makes oral and sterile liquid dosage forms antibiotics, including cephalosporin and penicillins. It was also cleared to manufacture freeze-dried cancer drugs for clinical trials in July 2015.

CordenPharma – which is owned by Germany-based International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG) – said addressing the issues – which were detailed in a warning letter in May last year – had involved a “holistic and systematic approach.”

The firm declined to comment further when contacted by
