As a result of reevaluation of the clinical trial by pharmaceutical companies for the S-adenosyl-L-methionine tosylate ingredient, safety was confirmed, but efficacy in active degenerative arthrosis was not proven.
Accordingly, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety recommended on the 24th to limit the use of two products from two companies containing S-adenosyl-L-methionine tosylate for active degenerative arthritis.
The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety previously decided that the efficacy of the S-adenosyl-L-methionine tosylate ingredient formulation was proven for ‘depression’ among the efficacy and effects, but it was judged that it was necessary to confirm the effectiveness for ‘active degenerative arthrosis’ carried out.
The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) is planning to expedite the deletion procedure for the relevant efficacy and effect based on the review of the domestic and overseas usage status of the S-adenosyl-L-methionine tosylate ingredient formulation, alternative drugs, and expert advice.
In addition, experts such as doctors and pharmacists were asked to use alternative medicines for patients with active degenerative arthritis, and patients who were already taking the corresponding ingredient formulations were asked to consult with experts to use alternative medicines.
