APP heparin manufacturing facility approved

Executive Summary

APP Pharmaceuticals announces Aug. 18 that FDA approved a facility in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico for the manufacture of three product codes of Heparin Sodium Injection. Currently the sole supplier of heparin in the U.S. in the wake of Baxter's heparin contamination fiasco, APP said approval of the third manufacturing facility will free up its other facilities to fulfill outstanding orders. The German health care products and services company Fresenius announced last month a $4.6 billion acquisition of APP - a buyout price that could increase if APP profits are higher than projected (1"The Pink Sheet," July 14, 2008, p. 17)
