What is fluorouracell topical cream?
The answer is… it’s a brand new product, a generic version of one that already exists in Canada.
The only thing it has in common with the generic version is it was introduced in Europe in 2014.
“It’s basically a cheaper alternative to the brand name,” says Michael Deane, a professor of pharmacy and health sciences at McMaster University.
The generic version does contain a number of brand names, including Fluoride Plus, but there’s nothing that would indicate which brand it’s coming from.
So far, there have been no complaints about the product from patients or healthcare professionals.
It was introduced last month in Canada and Europe as a generic form of Fluoruracil.
While it’s not the first generic version to come to market, it’s the first one that has no brand names.
It’s called FluorouracIL and it’s marketed as an over-the-counter solution to help treat high blood pressure, and is also used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including eczema and acne.
It doesn’t contain any other active ingredients, like antifungal ingredients.
Fluororouraceil is also made by Cephalon, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, but Deane says the company didn’t offer it to Canadians because the product doesn’t have a Canadian trademark.
That’s not a big deal, since the generic versions of fluorourazone and fluoroquinolone aren’t considered prescription medications.
But Deane is concerned that the generic fluoruracell cream is still in use in Canada, which is the country with the largest fluoride-related deaths in the world.
“We’re still waiting for a proper warning that this is unsafe,” he says.
Deane’s concerns are understandable, given that the new product comes from a pharmaceutical company that hasn’t had the kind of success it had in the U.S. and Europe.
And, as Deane notes, there are concerns about the safety of the generic products, too.
“People can be misinformed about the ingredients of this product and get the wrong impression,” he explains.
“They may have a concern that they are not taking fluoroquine or that it is too strong.
In fact, this product is stronger than the generic.
So I have no concern at all about the quality of this.”
The generic fluoroacil cream does contain some active ingredients that aren’t available in the brand, like furosemide and a preservative, but the problem is they’re not approved for use on humans.
“There is some indication that the product is safe for people but there is no indication that it’s safe for human use,” Deane adds.
“That’s the problem.”
But there’s one big problem with the generics: they’re made in China.
There are currently only two manufacturers of fluoroacetate-based products that can legally sell in Canada: China-based Cephylion and Canadian-based Fluorocoron.
According to Deane and others in the fluoro-pharma community, this is a big problem.
“China is the largest producer of fluocarboxylate [Fluorocarbonyls], which is a form of FCT that is used as a preserver in a lot of flu vaccines,” says Deane.
“FCT is a very stable molecule that can withstand many different conditions and conditions that would normally make it unusable.”
Deane points out that fluoroarbonyl is the only product that can be used to replace a vaccine containing the same inactive ingredient that is in the generic, and the only fluorocarbonyl-based product available in Canada to replace it.
So it’s unclear whether this generic fluoreacil will be the same, or whether it’ll be more toxic than the brand-name version.
But that’s exactly what’s going to happen.
“This product is not going to be safe for the patient, and it will not be safe to use in the treatment of chronic disease,” Dean says.
“The safety profile of the product isn’t known.”
It’s unclear if Fluorogard has a long-term safety profile in Canada because the company doesn’t know exactly what the ingredient is that is being used.
“At the time of this filing, there was no evidence that there was any long-lasting safety profile associated with this product,” says Cephedron spokesperson Kristina MacIntyre.
Cephecton is a Canadian-owned company with a Canadian manufacturing base, and so Cepherin’s spokesperson said”
All studies conducted on the product have demonstrated that the active ingredient is safe and does not pose a risk to the human body or the environment.”
