Approximately 7,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in South Africa each year.[i] Eribulin monotherapy is indicated for the treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer who have progressed after at least two chemotherapeutic regimens for advanced disease. Prior therapy should have included an anthracycline and a taxane unless patients were not suitable for these treatments.[ii]

 

"This is the first distribution agreement of this kind for Clinigen following our acquisition of Link Healthcare in 2015, and marks the continuation of a successful relationship with Eisai. As partners in the distribution of eribulin, we can leverage our comprehensive South African distribution network and local expertise to deliver this important medicine to eligible women across the country, marking an important moment in the fight against advanced breast cancer in the region,” comments Shaun Chilton, Group Chief Executive Officer, Clinigen Group.

 

“Through our close partnership with Clinigen South Africa, Eisai will officially enter the South African market with the launch of eribulin and together we strive to make a meaningful difference to the lives of patients with advanced breast cancer, comments Gary Hendler, Chairman and CEO EMEA & Global Chief Commercial Officer, Oncology Business Group, Eisai.
