Paul J. Maddon, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer, Chief Science Officer and Founder, Progenics, stated, “Our partnership with Salix maximizes the global development, commercialization and market potential of the RELISTOR franchise. Progenics and Salix share a vision of expanding the use of this important therapy among the millions of patients who suffer from the debilitating side effects of opioid pain medications.”Carolyn Logan, President and CEO, Salix, stated, “Constipation is a common, and often debilitating, gastrointestinal consequence of the use of opioid analgesics to manage pain. We are pleased to add RELISTOR Subcutaneous Injection, a first-in-class treatment for OIC in advanced illness, to our product portfolio. We believe RELISTOR represents a valuable asset that merits additional development and targeted commercialization. Currently an oral formulation of RELISTOR is in phase 3 development to potentially address OIC in patients with chronic, non-cancer pain. We look forward to utilizing our specialty sales force in the United States and our existing business partners worldwide to provide physicians with a solution to address the opioid-induced constipation experienced by their patients.”
