Shire recalls Gaucher drug but says it has plenty of supply in reserve


Shire is voluntarily recalling three lots of its Gaucher drug Vpriv but emphasized that it does not expect any supply interruption from the recall. Shire has promoted its drug's availability as an indirect selling point against a rival product from Genzyme that ran into supply issues 5 years–a problem the company has long since remedied.
