Brand Names

Brand Names sometimes vary from country to country.

  • For example Organon uses the brand name Puregon ® in Europe and Follistim in the United States.
  • Ferring uses the brand name Menopur® in Europe and Repronex in the United States.

All these products have the same active ingredients and have the same quality standards.

The European Medicines Agency (like for example the FDA in the United States) has extremely strict licensing requirements for the manufacturing of medicines. Much of the time, pharmaceutical companies produce medicines in the same facility for the worldwide market but use different brand names for different geographical markets.
