May 14 15
Iroko Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced that ZORVOLEX (diclofenac) capsules, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), is now available in 18 mg and 35 mg dosage strengths by prescription in Lebanon. ZORVOLEX was approved by the Republic of Lebanon Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) as a new chemical entity in December 2014 for the treatment of mild to moderate acute pain in adults and osteoarthritis pain. ZORVOLEX is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the management of mild to moderate acute and osteoarthritis pain, and is available at pharmacies across the United States. Iroko Pharmaceuticals, LLC, an affiliate of Iroko Pharmaceuticals Inc., will continue to retain all marketing rights to ZORVOLEX in the U.S. ZORVOLEX was developed to align with recommendations from FDA and several professional medical organizations that NSAIDs be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals. ZORVOLEX is the first FDA-approved low dose NSAID developed using proprietary SoluMatrix Fine Particle Technology and is now available by prescription. ZORVOLEX contains diclofenac as submicron particles that are approximately 10 times smaller than their original size. The reduction in particle
size provides an increased surface area, leading to faster dissolution.
