Isotechnika Merger With Aurinia To Create Leading Nephrology Company

"The consolidation of the intellectual property of these two companies ensures that this significant market opportunity is well protected and provides a powerful platform to create true stakeholder value," added Dr. Glickman.

"This combination provides a solid foundation upon which to build a successful voclosporin franchise within the area of nephrology. It is designed to achieve better patient care and enhanced shareholder value over both the near- and long-term.  In addition to the significant cost synergies provided by the merger, the Aurinia team brings a tremendous amount of expertise in lupus nephritis to the table," said Dr. Foster.
