Kelo-cote co-promotion agreement with Galderma for Italy
London, UK, 28 June 2012 Sinclair IS Pharma (Sinclair IS or the Company), the international specialty pharma company, announces its first co-promotion agreement for Kelo-cote® (silicone-based scar reduction gel/spray), with Galderma. The partnership with Galdermas Italian affiliate will be for 5 years, and includes gel and spray presentations as well as new Kelo-cote® line extensions.
Sinclair IS first licensed the rights to market Kelo-cote® in leading European markets in February 2011, before acquiring the asset globally through the purchase of ABT Inc. in December 2011. The Company remains very optimistic for the continued strong growth of this highly strategic franchise in both Europe and emerging markets, and now believes the potential to be sufficient to merit the introduction of partners to complement proprietary sales teams.
CEO Chris Spooner comments Kelo-cote® is a major growth driver for Sinclair IS and has attracted considerable interest from patients and physicians, and within the dermatology industry. Galderma is a pre-eminent player in the dermatology industry, and we are delighted to have the company co-promote our flagship brand in Italy. Against a backdrop of increasing interest in silicone-based scar reduction therapies and Kelo-cote® in particular, we are confident of the continued strong performance of the product, driven by multiple clinical uses, new market launches and line extensions.
