Ensuring continuity of supply of medicines and vaccines for patients is MSD’s highest priority and we have therefore taken all necessary steps to ensure supply of our products will not be negatively impacted once the UK leaves the EU. This includes building the necessary levels of stock for all medicines and products that enter the UK via the EU/EEA, in line with the Department of Health and Social Care’s request to pharmaceutical companies in August 2018. Should you have any queries on this, please use the contact details listed above.

It will be supplied by MSD in the UK exclusively in the form of 100 mg vial (25 mg/mL concentrate for solution for infusion).
