In a study  conducted by Dr. Manani and co-workers, on the pharmaceutical equivalence of clarithromycin oral dosage forms marketed in Nairobi County, Kenya found out that a significant percentage of generic clarithromycin products are pharmaceutically non-equivalent to the innovator products, and that assay and single-point dissolution tests are insufficient demonstration of equivalence between the generic and innovator products.

The fndings were publised by Scientia Pharmaceutica, a high impact journal of the mdpi. The peer-reviewd article can be freely accessible at:  http://www.mdpi.com/2218-0532/85/2/20
