CorMedix Signs Sales And Marketing Agreement With MKM Co-Pharma, Bolsters Commercial Management Team To Ready Neutrolin® Catheter Lock Solution For European Market

CorMedix Inc. (NYSE MKT: CRMD), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of cardiorenal disease, announced today that it has signed a commercial agreement with MKM Co-Pharma GmbH ( http://mkm-europe.com/en/), a European sales, marketing and advertising company with extensive experience in the launch of cardiorenal products. CorMedix entered into this agreement while awaiting the outcome of its application in the European Union (EU) for a CE mark for Neutrolin®, a catheter lock solution (CLS). If approved for use in the EU, Neutrolin will be used for the prevention of catheter related bloodstream infection (CRBI) and maintenance of catheter patency in hemodialysis (HD) patients.

To help prepare for a successful launch of the Neutrolin solution, which is planned initially in Germany, MKM hired as a national sales manager Joachim Petrak, who led the German and Central European launch of Renagel (sevelamer), a phosphate binder used to control phosphorus levels in people with chronic kidney disease who are on dialysis. Mr. Petrak has extensive experience with therapeutics (devices and drugs) in the renal dialysis market and strong relationships with European key opinion leaders (KOLs) in this segment.

"We believe our new relationship with MKM, including the addition of Joachim Petrak, will help drive successful sales and marketing efforts for the Neutrolin catheter lock solution in Germany at first, and later in the European Union, in anticipation of product approval,” said Randy D. Milby, CorMedix Chief Executive Officer. “Together, we will aim to ensure that Neutrolin becomes widely available in Europe for patients with central venous catheters on hemodialysis secondary to advanced chronic kidney disease.”

“These activities reflect the recent business and management progress we’ve made at CorMedix,” Milby added. “After obtaining the CE mark, we plan to further our efforts for a U.S. FDA regulatory program for Neutrolin and to advance our company and pipeline programs.”
