AcuCort receives its first order of Zeqmelit®

AcuCort has received its first order of the oral film Zeqmelit®. The order value will have a significant positive impact on the company’s financial results.
– This order signifies a crucial milestone in AcuCort’s history, says Jonas Jönmark, CEO of AcuCort.

Zeqmelit®, a rapidly dissolving oral film administered on the tongue for the treatment of severe to acute allergies, is in an intensive commercialization phase. Now, the first order has been received. The purchaser is Unimedic Pharma, also responsible for Zeqmelit® sales in the Nordic region. The order includes Zeqmelit® in its three strengths: 4, 6, and 8mg. The order value will significantly boost AcuCort's results for the current quarter.

– It's very gratifying to know that Zeqmelit® will soon be available in pharmacies in the Nordics, providing individuals with severe to acute allergies access to better treatment than before, says Jonas Jönmark.

The order signifies AcuCort's transition from being a developmental company to becoming a commercial pharmaceutical company.

– It's a historic milestone, and it feels very rewarding. We estimate that the order covers the initial demand in the first phase of the launch in the Nordics, says Jonas Jönmark.

Production has commenced. Zeqmelit®, a prescription medicine based on the well-known corticosteroid substance dexamethasone, will be available in pharmacies starting from the summer of 2024.
