In September, the German health authorities extended the manufacturer’s authorisation for LTS Lohmann Therapie-Systeme AG (LTS) to include capsules. Upon the successful inspection the competent national authority granted LTS the extension of its current manufacturer’s authorisation according to §13 AMG to include the manufacturing of capsules.
