Advicenne Provides an Update on Its Commercial Partnerships in Europe and the Middle East

  • Significant progress in the operational deployment of partnerships to support Sibnayal® commercial roll-out
  • Sustained growth in the number of patients with access to Sibnayal® in Europe

PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:

Advicenne (Euronext: ADVIC), a specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative treatments for those suffering from rare renal diseases, updates today the progress of the partnerships signed during 2022 in Europe and the Middle East for the marketing of Sibnayal® (a fixed dose combination of potassium citrate and potassium bicarbonate).

Significant achievements in Nordic countries

Advicenne and its partner for the Nordic and the Baltic countries, Frost Pharma, have recently achieved their first major successes, where in Norway physicians can now prescribe Sibnayal® with an official price since 1st February.

In Sweden, TLV (Tandvårds- och LäkemedelsförmånsVerket), the drug management agency, has just rejected the application for national reimbursement and leave Swedish hospitals to finance the product on their own budget. Patients already on Sibnayal via the temporary access program, will now need to be transferred to hospital paid treatment, as well as new patients switched to Sibnayal from other therapies.

Significant progress in other countries

In other European countries, Advicenne's commercial partners are also making significant progress. In Belgium, Twin Pharma has obtained a price and is now in the process of getting reimbursement for Sibnayal.

In Central and Eastern Europe, ExCEEd Orphan is focusing primarily on setting up early access programs and with the first patients included in Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Bulgaria.

The strategy is similar for Taïba Healthcare in the Middle East, where early access programs are being set up to establish initial market access. At the same time, Taïba Healthcare and Advicenne are preparing to file a registration application in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

Didier Laurens, CEO of Advicenne, stated: "We are delighted with the progress of our commercial partnerships, the progress made, and the results achieved. They are in line with our expectations. Signing off these partnerships is paying off and we anticipate significant successes soon. However, we know that the road to market is fraught with regulatory hurdles. The contrast of decisions, based on the same documents and scientific results, illustrates the difficulties faced by Advicenne, like any other pharmaceutical company, in pricing and reimbursement negotiations. It is all the more difficult to understand that the European authorities are pushing for the specific development of adapted formulations for pediatric patients and at the same time some authorities do not recognize the development work done; and rare diseases may deserve a specific and adapted financing model of drugs. In Germany, several patients treated with Sibnayal® are already covered directly by their private insurance. Despite obstacles, long-term follow-up results will make it possible to assess the value of Sibnayal® and the justification for its coverage. For the time being, Sibnayal® enjoys strong support from specialist doctors and expert centers. Today, more than 150 patients are treated in Europe and their testimonies confirm our optimism in the success of our development.”
