London and Zug, 27th March 2019 – Sintetica Limited, a specialist pharmaceutical company delivering injectable anaesthetics and analgesics to patients worldwide, and Primex Pharmaceuticals AG, an innovative global Anaesthesia pharmaceutical company, announced a strategic agreement today to commercialise OZALIN® in the United Kingdom.
One of the challenges facing paediatric anaesthetists in treating children, either for premedication or procedural sedation, is the lack of acceptable approved medications. An innovative oral solution for children older than 6 months, OZALIN®, has been approved in several markets in the EU including the UK, to improve the palatability and acceptability for children.
“The partnership with Sintetica UK represents an important achievement for Primex Pharmaceuticals to making OZALIN® available across the EU,” said Alan Knox, Primex’s Group CEO. “We are confident that Sintetica Limited with their experience in Anaesthesia, will greatly benefit children requiring premedication or procedural sedation.”
Darren Fergus, Managing Director of Sintetica Limited said, “Sintetica Limited is delighted to be launching OZALIN® in the UK, meeting the needs of children requiring sedation before a therapeutic or diagnostic procedure and providing an innovative oral solution for premedication prior to surgery. OZALIN® will help to establish Sintetica as a leader in the UK Anaesthesia market.”
