Thursday, March 30, 2023

Aquestive Therapeutics announced it has expanded its exclusive licence and supply agreement with Atnahs Pharma for Libervant™ (diazepam) Buccal Film to cover the rest of the world, excluding the United States, Canada, and China. The original licencing agreement with Pharmanovia announced in September 2022 covered the European Union, United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland, and Norway, as well as countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Under the expanded agreement, Aquestive Therapeutics will serve as the exclusive sole manufacturer and supplier for the product and Pharmanovia will be responsible for all regulatory and commercialisation activities. Aquestive will receive an undisclosed upfront payment and, if approved for market access, milestone payments, and double-digit royalties on net sales of the diazepam buccal film in the licenced territories.

Aquestive Therapeutics collaboration with Atnahs Pharma, expands agreement to include many more territories. The experience with diazepam marketed under an established brand in Valium®, combined with Aquestive Therapeutics’ unique PharmFilm® technology, provides a potentially significant delivery option to caregivers and patients in times of critical need and enables to optimise an existing medicine to better meet the needs of patients, healthcare professionals and payors.
