insbesondere Blasenentzündungen, Nierenbeckenentzündungen, Harnröhrenentzündungen und der

symptomlosen Ausscheidung von Bakterien mit dem Urin.

Uro-Vaxom® ist ein biologisches Arzneimittel und dient als Stimulans des Immunsystems, um die

natürlichen Abwehrkräfte zu stärken. Es aktiviert verschiedene Abwehrmechanismen des Körpers

(zelluläre und humorale Immunität), wodurch es zu einer verstärkten Immunantwort im Bereich der

Harnwege kommt. Uro-Vaxom® kann auch zusammen mit anderen, während der akuten Phase

verschriebenen Medikamenten angewendet werden.

Uro-Vaxom® wird angewendet bei Erwachsenen, Jugendlichen und Kindern über 4 Jahren.

Glyphosate: ANSES launches a comparative assessment with the available alternatives

Following the five-year re-approval of this active substance at European level in December 2017, ANSES is reassessing marketing authorisations for products containing glyphosate. For products for which an application for authorisation or re-authorisation has been submitted, the Agency will carry out a comparative assessment with the available alternatives. For each glyphosate-based product, all uses for which there is an alternative that meets the substitution criteria will therefore be prohibited.
