Lupin signs deal to distribute Salix Pharmaceuticals’ gastroenterology products in Canada

BY Michael Johnsen

BALTIMORE — Lupin Limited and Salix Pharmaceuticals on Friday announced that they have entered into a definitive distribution agreement under which Salix has granted Lupin the exclusive right to market, distribute and sell certain Salix products in Canada. 
 
This includes immediate rights to distribute Zaxine (rifaximin) 550 mg tablets for reduction in risk of overt hepatic encephalopathy recurrence in patients 18 years of age or older, and Relistor subcutaneous injection for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation in patients with advanced illness who are receiving palliative care, when response to laxative therapy has not been sufficient. 
 
Additionally, the agreement includes future dosage forms, strengths and indications for such products. Under the agreement, Lupin also has the option to exclusively market, distribute and sell other gastroenterology products in Salix’s Canadian pipeline once approved by Health Canada.
 
Lupin will promote the Salix products through its own sales force in Canada. Lupin is in the process of establishing its Canadian presence and the addition of this significant product portfolio opens up growth opportunities for the future. Zaxine and Relistor are first-in-class treatments for their respective disorders and are important treatment options for physicians and their patients, not only in the United States, but now in Canada.
 
Under the terms of the agreement, Salix will receive an upfront payment and distribution fees, and is eligible for additional pre-commercial and sales milestone payments. Salix will supply the products to Lupin under separate supply agreements.
