Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM), the innovative healthcare company focused on advanced transdermal technology, is pleased to announce that its UK commercialisation partner for TPR100, one of the Company’s novel topical pain relief products, has filed the product’s marketing authorisation application with the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.
TPR100 is licensed in the UK to Thornton & Ross, one of the UK’s largest consumer healthcare companies and a subsidiary of STADA. Thornton & Ross holds exclusive rights to manufacture, distribute and market TPR100 in the UK for the lifetime of the product’s patents, which run to 2028 in the UK.
TPR100, which benefits from the rapid skin permeation rates offered by Futura’s proprietary DermaSys® delivery system, will be launched, once approved, as an over-the-counter and general sales ledger product for the local symptomatic relief of pain and inflammation in:
trauma of the tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints, e.g. from sprains, strains and bruises
localised forms of soft tissue rheumatism.
Futura has achieved statistically significant pain relief in a clinical study compared with placebo for TPR100, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (“NSAID”) using diclofenac as its active ingredient.
Good news on TPR but I guess not the RNS we’re all waiting for. Still no news on MED but I’m guessing discussions are still on going. It’s just good to have some news shouldn’t do the SP any harm.
