September 21, 2023 Pharmacosmos enters partnership with SteinCares in Latin America

Pharmacosmos has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with SteinCares, one of Latin America's leading specialty healthcare companies, to commercialize and distribute Monofer® (ferric derisomaltose), a high-dose IV iron which is indicated, in the EU, for the treatment of iron deficiency (ID) when oral iron preparations are ineffective or cannot be used; or where there is a clinical need to deliver iron rapidly. 

"We are very excited about this partnership with Pharmacosmos, a leading international company that specializes in IV iron treatments. Monofer® will provide patients in the region with an innovative and cost-efficient treatment option for iron deficiency anemia. In addition, this agreement reinforces our position as a strategic partner for global pharmaceutical companies that bet on Latin America", stated Sebastian Katz, Chief Strategy Officer at SteinCares. 

Claes C Strom, Chief Commercial Officer at Pharmacosmos also commented on his enthusiasm for the signing of this deal. "This agreement represents an important milestone as Latin America is a market with great potential. We are confident that SteinCares' strong track record in hematology and nephrology, combined with our company’s expertise in IV iron treatments, will provide an excellent platform for Monofer® in the region”.
