NEWPORT, Ky., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals, Inc., an integrated specialty pharmaceutical company with both development and commercial capabilities focused on women's healthcare and pain management, announced today that the U.S. launch of Zipsor(TM) (diclofenac potassium) Liquid Filled Capsules, is now underway and being supported by an expanded 250-member specialty sales force.
In June 2009, Xanodyne received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Zipsor, a new treatment option for relief of mild to moderate acute pain in adults (18 years of age or older). With the national launch of Zipsor, Xanodyne has now successfully executed on two key elements of its business model - R&D and commercialization.
Commenting on the launch, Natasha Giordano, Chief Commercial Officer, said, "The launch of Zipsor was a tremendous achievement for Xanodyne. Within 90 days of receiving FDA approval, we were able to scale up our commercial organization and secure broad distribution at retail pharmacies for the product."
Giordano added, "This is an exciting time for Xanodyne as we seek to gain a foothold in the pain marketplace with Zipsor. Our newly expanded team of experienced sales representatives enables Xanodyne to achieve a greater geographic reach and frequency of product details to healthcare professionals across the United States."
Xanodyne remains committed to aggressively executing its product commercialization strategy for its emerging product portfolio. The Company expects FDA action soon on Lysteda(TM) (formerly XP12B), an oral tranexamic acid compound under priority review for the potential treatment of women suffering from heavy menstrual bleeding.
Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which commenced operations in 2001, is an integrated specialty pharmaceutical company with both development and commercial capabilities focused on women's healthcare and pain management. Xanodyne markets a portfolio of products consisting of prescription pharmaceuticals and a line of prenatal vitamins. Additionally, Xanodyne is advancing a late stage pipeline of product candidates targeted at significant potential markets in Xanodyne's focus areas.
