Ypsomed's ServoPen® for the treatment of Parkinson's disease
Burgdorf, 19 October 2016, 7.00 a.m. – Austrian specialist pharmaceutical company, Ever Pharma, now offers the D-mine Pen for the treatment of Parkinson patients with apomorphine. This reusable pen, which is based on the Ypsomed ServoPen platform, facilitates subcutaneous administration with its patient friendly design.
Apomorphine Hydrochloride (Dacepton) is injected under the skin. It belongs to a group of drugs known as dopamine agonists, which are used for treating Parkinson's disease. Among other things, it helps to shorten ”on-off” phases for late-stage Parkinson patients. "To simplify apomorphine injections for patients, Ever Pharma has decided to use a reusable injection system from Ypsomed. The proven expertise and long experience of Ypsomed in the area of injection systems were the deciding factors for this choice.", is how Georges Kahwati, managing director at Ever Pharma, describes the cooperation with the Ypsomed Group.
The D-mine Pen is currently being launched in Germany and Austria. Other countries, including the Nordic countries, Central America, several states in the Near East, as well as Australia and New Zealand will follow.
