Hong Kong: Approximately 60% of children experience significant behavioural stress during perioperative or procedural sedation, making them anxious, frightened, phobic and non-cooperative. The ultimate goal is a safe and effective procedural sedation service. ADV6209 is an oral solution, and it will be the first paediatric sedative registered in Europe, expected to be on the market next year.
Professor Hervé Dupont, Head of the Anaesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine Department at Amiens University Hospital, presented the clinical results from the phase II study and his own experiences of ADV6209 in paediatric sedation. The results show the rapid sedative effect with excellent acceptability by paediatric patients in clinical practice as one of the main advantages of the novel formulation.
ADV6209 is an oral solution, and it will be the first paediatric sedative registered in Europe, expected to be on the market next year.
“We are excited to bring the next anaesthetic innovation to the market,” Mr. Alan Knox, Head of Global Marketing at Primex comments. “Anaesthesiologists have been asking for a paediatric sedative that is accepted by children and well tolerated to be used by non-anaesthesiologists. For children, there is a large unmet need for pre-anaesthesia and a huge unmet need for procedural sedation, e.g. in emergency and diagnostic procedures.”
Kari Sarvanto, President and Co-Founder of Primex Group, added: “Bringing this new solution to the market will be a major step towards making Primex Pharmaceuticals the leading global anaesthesia pharmaceutical company.”
