New Jext auto injector

The new Jext auto injector

Important safety information for patients using Jext® solution for injection in pre-filled pen.

Routine testing conducted by ALK-Abelló has revealed that during the production process in some batches the needle may have become bent, causing the needle to curl up inside the injector housing upon activation and consequently causing the pen not to deliver the required adrenaline dose.

The malfunction only affects a small number, approximately 1 in 2500, of the pens in these batches.

Immediate action has been taken to eliminate similar production issues in the future.

Read the full alert to see which batches have been affected and what you need to do.
