GODMANCHESTER, Cambridgeshire, U.K. (11 June 2008) – Phytopharm plc (PYM: London Stock Exchange) (”Phytopharm” or the “Company”) announces today the launch of Phytopica® in Hong Kong by its partner, Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health.
In January 2006, Phytopharm entered into an exclusive global agreement with Schering-Plough Animal Health for the Company’s canine skin health product, Phytopica®. Under the terms of the agreement, Phytopharm is responsible for manufacturing Phytopica® whilst Schering-Plough Animal Health is responsible for the global sales, marketing and distribution of Phytopica®. In April 2006, Schering-Plough Animal Health launched Phytopica® in the UK followed by launches in Italy and France in March and April 2007. The product has enjoyed firm support from veterinary dermatologists and recorded strong sales growth.
Phytopica® is effective in the management of canine skin health by providing a novel 3 in 1 approach to help maintain a normal healthy immune system, support normal white cell function and provide anti-oxidant benefits. The beneficial effects and excellent safety profile of Phytopica® have been proven extensively in clinical trials and the product has been found to be suitable for all dogs whatever size or breed.
In November 2007, Schering-Plough completed the acquisition of Organon BioSciences N.V which included the animal health business, Intervet. The enlarged animal health business is now operating as Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health. Following the Hong Kong launch, Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health will seek to market and distribute Phytopica® in further countries.
Canine dermatological disorders are recognised by veterinarians to be a major problem in small animal practice, with an estimated 15-30% of the global dog population affected by skin conditions (Muller & Kirk’s Small Animal Dermatology, 6th Ed, 2000).
Commenting on today’s announcement, Dr Daryl Rees, Chief Executive Officer of Phytopharm, said: “We are delighted with the launch of Phytopica® in Hong Kong by the one of the world’s leading animal health companies and with Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health’s continuing roll-out we look forward to further growth.”
Commenting on today’s announcement, Grace Xiao, Business Director Companion Animal Business Intervet/Schering Plough Animal Health (China) said: “We are very pleased to be launching Phytopica® in Hong Kong as it offers a safe, easy to use and cost effective approach to the long term management of canine skin health. Following the success in Europe and the increasing demand for safe and effective companion animal products in Hong Kong, we look forward to maximizing the potential of Phytopica®.”
