Mundipharma and APR Applied Pharma Research S.A Announce a New Alliance for the Distribution of Nexodyn® AcidOxidizing Solution in Africa and the Levant

Jaa

Mundipharma International Corporation Limited (Mundipharma) and APR Applied Pharma Research SA (APR) announce that they have signed a licensing, distribution and marketing agreement for Africa and the Levant Region for the innovative active wound cleanser Nexodyn® AcidOxidizing Solution AOS (Nexodyn® AOS), currently marketed in Europe, Turkey and soon available in Middle East countries.

Mundipharma will have exclusive rights to the product in more than 35 African markets and countries of the Levant including Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia and Morocco. The first launches in these markets will begin in the incoming months following the registration and the obtaining of local authorizations for tariffs and refunds.

The global advanced wound care market is expected to grow significantly in the next years as a result of the increasing incidence of chronic wounds, which triggers the need for products ensuring faster and effective wound healing and thus allowing potentially a reduction of overall healthcare costs.

The innovative wound cleanser by APR, Nexodyn® AOS, can offer HCPs and caregivers a new option for an optimized wound care: while cleansing the wound bed, Nexodyn® AOS is able to modulate the lesion’s microenvironment contributing to the control of the microbial burden and protecting from the risk of local infection, thus actively sustaining the physiological healing process.1

Moreover, Nexodyn® AOS contains hypochlorous acid (HClO), a known antimicrobial agent acting as a preservative by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms within the solution, and preventing wound contamination by exerting a local antimicrobial effect on the wound surface.

The antimicrobial properties have been demonstrated against the most common bacteria and, importantly, against multidrug- and antibiotic-resistant strains. 1

On the other hand, Nexodyn® AOS has a very favorable benefit/risk profile on cell viability preservation when compared to commonly used solutions1, further favoring the physiological healing process.

“We are excited to expand our wound care portfolio and look forward to rapidly advancing development and commercialization Nexodyn® AOS in Africa and the Levant to maximize its success. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Applied Pharma Research S.A and the prospect of growth that this collaboration brings" – says Dr. Ashraf Allam, Regional Vice President, Mundipharma Middle East and Africa region.

“We are proud to welcome Mundipharma, a well-known and solid pharmaceutical company, into Nexodyn® AOS international partners network. Thanks to this agreement, Nexodyn® AOS distribution will further expand across the world, confirming how it fills a gap within the current array of wound care solutions on the market.”- says Paolo Galfetti, Chief Executive Officer of APR.

About Nexodyn® AcidOxidizing Solution AOS
Nexodyn® AOS is an AcidOxidizing spray solution, characterized by pH<3, RedOx >1000mV and stabilized Hypochlorous Acid (>95% of free chlorine species) – intended for use in the debridement, irrigation and moistening of acute and chronic wounds, ulcers, cuts, abrasions, burns and other lesions. Nexodyn® AOS has been developed based on APR’s proprietary and patented technology TEHCLO®, enabling the production of super-oxidized solutions containing free chlorine species, of which stabilized Hypochlorous Acid (HClO) in very high concentration (> 95%). A wide array of non-clinical experiments and clinical observations suggest Nexodyn® AOS to act as a valid support to the activation of the physiological processes that restart wound healing, in presence of a favorable safety and tolerability profile. The convenient and easy-to-use spray formulation completes Nexodyn® AOS’s profile, providing healthcare professionals with a new tool for an optimized wound care.

Henley & Partners Enlarges Executive Committee to Manage Expansion and Growth14.12.2018 17:00Tiedote

Residence- and citizenship-by-investment programs have firmly established themselves over the past few years as the new frontier in terms of freedom, flexibility, and future-readiness, both for the countries issuing these programs and for the individual investors participating in them. The societal and economic value these programs generate is undisputed. The investment migration industry as a whole is currently grossing roughly USD 18 billion per year, with an expectation that it will hit the USD 20 billion mark very soon. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is now considered the lifeblood of economic growth for many developing and recovering smaller countries around the world. As such, the number of investment migration programs has been increasing rapidly, from just a handful of programs in the 1980s and 1990s to over 100 countries that now have investment migration provisions in their laws. There are more than 60 active programs today, with Moldova and Montenegro — both fast-growing Eu

Vargatef® plus docetaxel could be an option after failure of immunotherapy in lung cancer14.12.2018 12:07Tiedote
