The case of fraud allegation against the acquitted pharmacies in the upper Bavarian Odelzhausen is to be reopened. The Bundesgerichtshof (BGH) in Karlsruhe. On Tuesday, the Bundesgerichtshof (BGH) in Karlsruhe unexpectedly raised the issue around the original decision of acquittal, made by the Landgerichts München court. The defendant in the case had prepared infusion solutions in the laboratory of his pharmacy in 2006 and 2007.
The background: in the production of cytostatic preparations, pharmacies can only use medications prepared or manufactured in Germany. Dilution using saline solution is, in the view of the BGH, not considered to be preparation of a prescription drug.
According to the BGH, the addition of a saline solution to a prescription-ready drug does not eliminate the permit requirement of drug production in Germany. The requirement for approval still exists.
