- In November 2011, Astellas placed a hold on telavancin and other products manufactured by a third party during ongoing investigations of production equipment and processes.
- In January 2012, Astellas announced the termination of its telavancin development and commercialization agreement with Theravance. Astellas has ceased promotional marketing of telavancin. Astellas will temporarily provide support for the product while Theravance examines other commercialization routes.
