In 2019, one novel pharmaceutical agent for horses or food-producing animals was released on the German market: An injection suspension for horses containing chondrogenic-induced equine allogeneic peripheral blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells as the active ingredient (ArtiCell Forte) is now available. Two established veterinary active pharmaceutical ingredients became accessible for additional species: a salicylanilide anthelmintic oxyclozanide (Distocur) for the treatment and control of fascioliasis in sheep as well as a type-I synthetic pyrethroid permethrin (Z-Itch), which now has additionally been authorized for donkeys. Additionally, one veterinary drug with a new combination of active ingredients (toltrazuril + gleptoferron), 2 drugs (permethrin, omeprazole) in a new pharmaceutical formulation, one drug (lidocaine) with a novel route of administration, one drug (amprolium) with a higher content of the active ingredient, as well as one active substance (butylscopolaminium bromide) in mono-preparation have been launched on the market for horses and food-producing animals.
