WHO recommends not using Indian cough syrups in Uzbekistan – Times of India

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Wednesday advised two Indian cough syrups – Ambronol and DOK-1 Max – not to be used on children in Uzbekistan.
Analysis by the Ministry of Health of Uzbekistan showed that the syrups contained a toxic substance, ethylene glycol, and were administered in doses higher than the norm for children, either by their parents, who mistook it for a cold remedy, or on advice from pharmacists.
The manufacturer of both products, which have been linked to the deaths of 19 children in the country, is based in India Marion Biotech Pvt Ltd. Until now, Marion WHO has not given any guarantees about the safety and quality of these products, the agency said in its statement.
