The production and distribution of Penicillin 6.3.3 has been resumed after laboratory tests at the Food and Drug Administration cleared the drug as safe for use.

“The lab results show the drug is safe, and there is no room for concern over its use,” said FDA head Rasoul Dinarvand, IRNA reported.

Following the recent death of a patient after receiving the intravenous antibiotic in Kashan city in Isfahan Province, the FDA had ordered an enquiry. The Neishabur University of Medical Sciences in neighboring Khorasan Razavi Province had directed all local pharmacies to halt its sale.

“There must have been another reason for the patient’s sudden death,” Dinarvand said.

People allergic to penicillin might experience a shock episode called anaphylaxis, a severe reaction of the immune system to the antibiotic.
