Publication of the “Dorovit-case”

A little bit more than a year ago, InphA detected undeclared substances in the product Dorovit. Based on this, the product was recalled from all German pharmacies (for details please find here our earlier report on this case). In a publication in the German pharmacist’s newspaper “Deutsche Apothekerzeitung” InphA has laid down the background of this case for professionals.

The methods used to unmask the undeclared substances as well as the substances found are described along with an explanation of the legal situation of food supplements compared to medicines. Furthermore the responsibility of the pharmacist for the stocking of the pharmacy is emphasized. The full article can be found here (German only).
