May 1, 2020 -- AMRI Global will boost production of hydroxychloroquine sulfate active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) due to its potential effectiveness in treating COVID-19 symptoms in patients.

AMRI's active type II drug master file for hydroxychloroquine sulfate, which was issued an emergency use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat some hospitalized patients with COVID-19, is available to support increased need.

The company remains committed to working with drug product producers, government agencies, and associated health authorities globally to ensure access to this API as demand increases.
