Venom Immunotherapy (VIT) Product Supply Update
19th February 2020:
Hymenoptera® honey bee, paper wasp nad yellow jacket venom products are currently all in stock in Australia and New Zealand. However, the manufacturer of Hymenoptera® venom products (Jubilant HollisterStier LLC) has advised Stallergenes Greer of a critical manufacturing issue, which will negatively impact their ability to ship venoms outside of the USA in the short term. A further update on supply will be available in April 2020.
In the meantime, for guidance on how to make decisions about the appropriate care for patients currently receiving venom immunotherapy, and measures to avoid interruptions to therapy in high-risk patients, please refer to the ASCIA website for further information: www.allergy.org.au/members/insect-allergy
