| 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 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.
