Pharmalink Enters Manufacturing Agreement for Nefecon(R)
Date:10/31/2012

STOCKHOLM, October 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Pharmalink AB, a Swedish specialty pharma company, today announces it has entered into a contract with Patheon Inc., a leading provider of contract development and manufacturing services to the global pharmaceutical industry for the manufacturing of Nefecon®, Pharmalink's lead product. Nefecon is being developed as the first on-label medication specifically aimed at addressing the underlying pathology of progressive IgA nephropathy, the most common form of primary glomerulonephritis and a leading cause of end-stage renal disease.

In that context, our development programme for Nefecon is seen as one of the most significant in IgA nephropathy clinical research. We have already shown positive results in an open-labelled Phase II trial evaluating Nefecon's safety and efficacy and, with Patheon, we will be working with one of the pharmaceutical industry's best-respected manufacturers as Nefecon advances towards pivotal trials."

The target group for Nefecon is the approximately 40% patients with the more aggressive form of the disease and who are at risk of developing end-stage renal disease. The ultimate aim is to provide an alternative to dialysis and transplantation. Pharmalink has receiv
