Balerna (Switzerland)- 11th December 2018. Nexodyn® AcidOxidizing Solution (AOS), the Tehclo-based product for acute and chronic wound management, is now available in Slovakia, promoted and commercialized by the pharmaceutical companies Evopharm and Sanomed, pursuant to an exclusive partnership with the Swiss pharma company APR Applied Pharma Research s.a. (“APR”).
After Slovakia, in early 2019 Evopharm will expand the distribution of the product first to Poland, where the registration is currently being completed, and then to Czech Republic.
As confirmed by the results of pre-launch activities, Evopharm is confident that Nexodyn® AOS, based on APR’s proprietary and patented technology Tehclo®, can offer to Slovak Healthcare Professionals (“HCPs”) and caregivers a new treatment option to effectively address the wound healing complexity.
Local KOLs, involved in an Advisory Board, got particularly impressed from the distinctive physico-chemical properties of this product, able to create the ideal microenvironment to sustain the physiological healing process of wounds; clinical evidences have shown Nexodyn® AOS to promote the restart of wound healing, which is considered of great value.
Another benefit of Nexodyn® AOS in interviewed HCPs’ eyes is the local ancillary antimicrobial effect on the wound surface, due to the highly pure and stabilized hypochlorous acid, which can help prevent contamination or contribute to counteract local infections.
“We are very proud about our collaboration with APR and to have the chance to provide Slovak HCPs’ dealing with acute and chronic wounds of such a powerful product. We believe that Nexodyn® AOS, being the first wound cleanser on the Slovak market containing hypochlorous acid, could really make a difference in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, lower leg ulcers and pressure ulcers.” commented Martin Hustaty, CEO of Evopharm together with Aneta Manova, CEO of Sanomed.
Sanomed will support the distribution and the promotion of Nexodyn® AOS with a consistent range of activities addressing the HCPs at different levels, from KOLs to hospitals, as well as pharmacists and nurses, like congresses, training courses and e-mailing campaigns, with the purpose of establishing Nexodyn® AOS as the first wound cleanser restarting the physiological healing process of wounds.
”We are very pleased to see Nexodyn® AOS available on Slovak market. This launch comes after previous marketing of the product in Italy, US, Saudi Arabia and UAE, as a result of several partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies.” said Paolo Galfetti, Chief Executive Officer of APR. “Other markets will follow in the next year confirming Nexodyn® AOS appeal and efficacy among the available wound care solutions”.
