The supply issue with urokinase injection (Syner-kinase) will affect all strengths and last for several months due an issue at the manufacturing site. Syner-Med is currently the sole licensed UK supplier of the medicinal form of urokinase. Syner-Med is currently restricting supplies of all strengths to approximately 50% of normal demand, until the shortage resolves. This memo advises on managing existing stock and alternative treatment options.
