  • No serious AR led to dose reduction1
  • One serious AR of hyponatraemia (0.7%) led to dose interruption1
  • One serious AR of blood creatinine increase (0.7%) led to dose discontinuation1
  • Eye disorder serious ARs were retinal detachment (0.7%), non-arteritic optic ischaemic neuropathy (0.7%) and retinal artery occlusion (0.7%)1

*Due to incomplete clinical data at the time of review of the marketing authorisation application, the medicinal product PEMAZYRE is authorised for a limited period of time (Art. 9a LPTh). The temporary authorisation must be linked to the timely satisfaction of conditions. Once these conditions are met, the temporary authorisation may be converted into ordinary authorisation.1
