Emcure Pharmaceuticals Limited (EPL) has announced the launch of Orofer FCM 750, a new extension of its parenteral iron brand containing Ferric carboxymaltose (FCM).

The new dosage variant is designed to provide a more effective and convenient option for patients with iron deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia (IDA). DCGI-approved FCM is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency when oral iron preparations are ineffective or cannot be used. It is already available in dosage forms 1000mg/ 20ml and 500mg/ 10ml single-use vials. With this latest launch, Orofer FCM will also be available as a 750mg/15ml dosage form recommended for the treatment of patients with haemoglobin less than 10 g/dl & bodyweight between 35 kg to 70kg. Orofer FCM can only be obtained through a prescription from a registered medical practitioner.

Anil Kothiyal, President India Business, Emcure Pharmaceuticals said “At Emcure Pharmaceuticals, we recognise IDA as a major public health concern in India, particularly among women. We feel satisfied to introduce Orofer FCM 750 to help address this significant burden of IDA in India. This bolsters our commitment to providing innovative and effective solutions to meet the healthcare needs of patients in India. We believe Orofer FCM 750, with its convenient dosage strength, will provide an important treatment option for patients with IDA who may not have responded to oral iron preparations or who cannot tolerate them. Orofer FCM will be available in leading pharmacies and hospitals shortly.”
