Immedica enters agreement with OrphanPacific


Immedica Pharma and Japanese company OrphanPacific entered an agreement under which OrphanPacific gains the exclusive rights to Ravicti in Japan.

The pharmaceutical drug product Ravicti is approved in Europe and North America for treatment of urea cycle disorders (UCD).

Under the announced partnership, OrphanPacific is granted a license to develop, register and commercialize the product in UCD in Japan. OrphanPacific will initiate a clinical trial for obtaining approval for glycerol phenylbutyrate in Japan. OrphanPacific is already Immedica’s commercial partner in Japan for the commercialization of the drug product Buphenyl.

“It is with great pleasure that we announce this expanded partnership with OrphanPacific, under which we will be able to make Ravicti available to UCD patients also in Japan. The entered agreement also further strengthens Immedica’s geographical footprint, by introducing yet another product collaboration in Japan,” says Anders Edvell, CEO of Immedica.
