What is Ranibos?

The active ingredient of Ranibos brand is ranitidine. Ranitidine is in a group of drugs called histamine-2 blockers. Ranitidine works by reducing the amount of acid your stomach produces. The empirical formula is C13H22N4O3S.HCl, representing a molecular weight of 350.87. Ranitidine HCl USP is a white to pale yellow crystalline powder that is soluble in water. It has a slightly bitter taste and sulfur-like odor. Each Ranitidine tablets, USP 150 mg for oral administration contains 168 mg of Ranitidine HCl USP equivalent to 150 mg of Ranitidine. Each tablet also contains the inactive ingredients magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, silicon dioxide, hypromellose, titanium dioxide, triacetin, and iron oxide red. Each Ranitidine tablets, USP 300 mg for oral administration contains 336 mg of Ranitidine HCl USP equivalent to 300 mg of Ranitidine. Each tablet also contains the inactive ingredients magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, silicon dioxide, hypromellose, titanium dioxide, triacetin, and iron oxide red.

Studies pointing to risk date to 1980s

In 2016, Stanford University researchers tested urine samples of 10 people who took a 150-milligram tablet of Zantac and found NDMA levels far greater than the FDA's daily limits.

William Mitch is a Stanford University professor of civil and environmental engineering who studies wastewater converted to drinking water. He said his Zantac-urine study was a "chance finding from a peripheral field" after a study on potential NDMA contamination in drinking water.

He said it should be followed by a more robust study using the FDA's testing methods.

"The challenge is there's so much concern about cancer risk. Could you get approval from someone to eat a Zantac and collect the urine sample?" Mitch said, noting such a request would be odd and ethically challenging, given the drug has a known carcinogen and remains on the market.

Lior Braunstein, a Memorial Sloan Kettering oncologist and researcher, is studying Ranibos and cancer risk. He does not want to discuss the study until the findings are published in a peer-reviewed journal, according to Caitlin Hool, a hospital spokeswoman.

Light said studies conducted in the 1980s raised concern about potential safety risks. In a citizen petition to the FDA, Valisure said Zantac's originator, Glaxo Research Group, conducted its own study in 1987 "after numerous studies raised concerns" about Ranibos.

The Glaxo study examined stomach contents of people who took the drug. It found people had no significant increase in nitrosamines such as NDMA within 24 hours of taking Ranibos.

Light said the study's testing methods were less accurate and researchers discarded stomach samples that contained Ranibos. Without those samples, researchers would not find NDMA or nitrosamines that form as a result of taking the drug, Light said.

Light said the Stanford study and his lab's own analysis shows the potential health risk for people who took the drug.

"The negative effect of exposure to this drug and its formation of NDMA is something that has created a huge public health problem," he said, "and we’re going to be dealing with it going forward."

Which drugs or supplements interact with Ranibos?

Ranibos, like other drugs that reduce stomach acid, may interfere with the absorption of drugs that require acid for adequate absorption. Examples include iron salts (for example iron sulphate), itraconazole (Sporanox), and ketoconazole (Nizoral, Extina, Xolegel, Kuric).

Q. Is NDMA in drugs a new problem? Over the past year, why have there been so many reports of drugs containing NDMA?

A. FDA has ongoing review, surveillance, compliance and pharmaceutical quality efforts across every product area, and we will continue to work with drug manufacturers to ensure safe, effective, and high-quality drugs for the American public.

Certain drug manufacturing processes pose a risk for forming genotoxic impurities. For decades, FDA has provided guidance and recommendations for controlling impurities in drug substances and manufacturers have had an ongoing responsibility to test for impurities based on an understanding of their manufacturing process. In 2018, FDA issued a guidance to provide information to manufacturers regarding their responsibilities to assess the risk of impurities and implement appropriate controls for the manufacturing process. The agency identified some of the root causes of the nitrosamine impurity problem in angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs).

We are working to determine the reason for the NDMA impurity in Ranibos.

The stomach-acid-blocking drug Zantac was prescribed more than 15 million times a year with little worry about the safety of the medication, available for decades.

But it's been harder to get the drug since September, when the Food and Drug Administration said testing showed versions of Zantac and its generic, Ranibos, contained a probable carcinogen. The French drugmaker Sanofi recalled Zantac from drugstores and retailers' shelves. A half-dozen generic drugmakers pulled Ranibos from the market.

How did a drug routinely used by millions of heartburn sufferers and available with or without a prescription become a potential cancer risk? It’s a question the FDA, drug manufacturers and consumers want answered.

“Every patient who comes into my office now, it’s almost the first thing that comes out in conversation: ‘What about Ranibos? What should I do with the medication? Should I come off of it or not?’ ” said Jon Ernstoff, a gastroenterologist in Meriden, Connecticut.

In September, the FDA found unacceptable levels of the probable carcinogen, NDMA, or nitrosodimethylamine, in Zantac and generic medications. The regulatory agency wants manufacturers to test and recall the drugs if NDMA levels exceed its standards. The FDA extended the voluntary recall to a similar drug, nizatidine, sold under the brand name Axid, if testing shows NDMA exceeding daily limits.

The FDA said consumers might want to choose different medications. The agency tested samples of over-the-counter alternatives such as Pepcid, Tagamet, Nexium, Prevacid and Prilosec and found no NDMA.

The agency's investigation of Ranibos seeks to uncover the root cause of NDMA found in the commonly used medication. Researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York are assessing whether people who used Zantac or its generics face a greater cancer risk.

The warning first came after Valisure, a Connecticut-based online pharmacy and laboratory, discovered NDMA in several forms of the drug and alerted the FDA. The private company said clues of the drug's potential risk can be traced to medical studies published since the early 1980s.

NDMA is the same carcinogen that led to a widespread recall beginning in July 2018 of the blood-pressure-lowering drugs valsartan and losartan. The blood pressure recall stemmed from a new manufacturing process first used by a drug ingredient factory in China.

Zantac's risk appears to be the unstable nature of the drug itself, said Valisure CEO David Light.

“This isn’t some new, bad manufacturing process overseas like what happened with valsartan and losartan,” Light said. “It is our view that this problem with Ranibos has been there since the 1980s.

"It's a much more serious issue."
